Edmonton Marriott Welcomes Popular Entertainers for Springtime Shows

EDMONTON, AB--(Marketwire - March 8, 2010) -  The Edmonton Marriott at River Cree Resort is thrilled to host several popular shows at the luxurious resort in March, April and May. The upcoming shows include the murder mystery I Love You to Death from March 24 to 28, world-renown psychic Sylvia Browne on April 10, Bridget Ryan Cabaret on April 16 and Country Girls Cabaret on May 14. The shows will take place in the Marriott Hotel Ballroom and all tickets can be purchased through ticketsales@rivercreeresort.com or by calling (780) 930-2619.

The first show -- I Love You to Death -- mixes music and mystery to lead guests through clues and comedic mayhem to figure out how one guest wound up shot in the back by Cupid's arrow. Fun, trickery, and good old-fashioned investigative skills abound as each guest couple works together to try to guess which one of the suspects was "down with love."

On April 10th, psychic Sylvia Browne visits to share some wisdom and advice. Sylvia is one of the world's most renown psychics and a regular on talk shows including Larry King Live and Montel Williams. Tickets for this event can also be purchased through Ticketmaster.

Local raconteur Bridget Ryan, performs on April 16th. Ryan is a co-host of Breakfast Television on CITY-TV and will bring her brand of humor and music to a special one-night only event.

The final event on May 14th features Country Girls Cabaret. Local recording star Lisa Hewitt and Calgary-based blues singer/guitarist Lindsay Ell will perform in concert. Hewitt was the 2005 Canadian Country Music Association awards winner of Independent Female Vocalist of the Year. Ell, who was discovered by legendary Canadian singer/songwriter Randy Bachman, performed at the welcome reception for the Juno Awards in 2009.
