Dear Friends of Marta,

For Marta Becket's 55th Anniversary Celebration, you are invited to join us for an evening of dance and musical entertainment in her beloved Amargosa Opera House on Saturday, Feb. 11.

To inaugurate our new partnership with Donna’s Studio of Dance, Lisa Paulson, director of Donna’s studio and professional ballerina, is choreographing our program. It will feature students from Donna’s Studio and professional performers from Las Vegas. Donna’s Studio was founded in 1979 in Pahrump, Nevada, by Donna Lamm, visionary founding member of the Pahrump Visual and Performing Arts Council, instructor and ballerina, who remained a steadfast friend of Marta through the years.

We are also proud to honor our transformational partnership with the newly launched Ruth Foundation for the Arts (Ruth DeYoung Kohler II), based in Milwaukee. In 2022, Ruth Arts awarded two grants to the Amargosa Opera House which will be used, in part, for Marta Becket Scholarships to support students in need from Donna’s Studio to pursue their own creative endeavors in collaboration with the Amargosa Opera House and guidance from experienced artists and instructors.

Please join us for our 55th Anniversary event honoring Marta while also celebrating the “first flower” of our growing partnerships with Ruth Arts and Donna’s Studio. Indeed, their dedication fulfills Marta’s desire to preserve her legacy by supporting opportunities for young people to become inspired by her life and art while pursuing their own creative dreams.
