Rather as one of Dean Martin’s original television Golddiggers, she brings a unique hit show to the Performing Arts Center one night only on August 6 at 7:30 p.m. with “Suzy Cadham a Golddigger (Not That Kind).” With a hint of Ethel Merman in her delivery Cadham sings and laughs her way through a hit show that relives the Golden Age of Variety television.
The Golddiggers were a singing and dancing troupe made famous on The Dean Martin Show in the style of Las Vegas showgirls. In addition the group traveled with Bob Hope during his USO Christmas tours that were also aired on television, entertaining troops in Vietnam and a stop at the White House.
As a Golddigger Cadham has appeared with many of entertainment’s biggest stars, like Jimmy Stewart, Lucille Ball, Carol Burnett, Ann Margaret, Frank Sinatra, John Wayne, Orson Welles, Kate Smith and Connie Stevens. All of which makes for great Golddigger material as Cadham draws from her decades-long career that also included musical theatre and dinner clubs along the way.
She was one of Nabors girls on the Jim Nabors Show and made many appearances on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson Her renditions of familiar tunes like “My Heart Belongs to Daddy,” “There’s Nothing Like a Dame” and “Thanks for the Memories” take audiences on a musical nostalgic journey that has people cheering, clapping and maybe singing along.
Multi-award winning Ken Prescott directs with musical direction by Alex Danson featuring Jay Lewis on drums and Jeff Stover on bass. Tickets $20 and the show is presented by Bear Valley Guild for the Arts and Open Sky Music Foundation.
