Carpenters Legacy: A Christmas Portrait
A CHRISTMAS PORTRAIT featuring The World’s ONLY Authentic Carpenters Tribute in Sight & Sound
The Carpenters’ Christmas records still top “Favourite Holiday Album” lists every year.
Direct from Las Vegas, Carpenters Legacy: A Christmas Portrait, starring Sally Olson as Karen Carpenter and Ned Mills as Richard Carpenter, takes the audience back in time to an old fashioned Christmas. The show recreates the nostalgia of the Carpenters’ 1977 and 1978 Christmas TV Specials, in addition to the endearing humor that will make you feel like a kid again! The show features the holiday classics “Merry Christmas, Darling”, “Sleigh Ride”, “The Christmas Song” and much more, and includes many of the Carpenters’ greatest hits.
Randy Schmidt, author of Little Girl Blue: The Life of Karen Carpenter, says “Sally’s tribute to Karen Carpenter is heartfelt and honest” and John Katsilometes of Las Vegas Review-Journal has lauded the show as “musically sound, vocally spot-on, and will please any fans of the duo.” Sam Novak of Vegas 411 says, “Sally Olson and Ned Mills perfectly embody Karen and Richard Carpenter. Carpenters Legacy is nothing short of astounding.” Sally is truly unsurpassed in her startling representation of Karen Carpenter, including authentic hairstyles, vintage costumes, gestures, and stunning voice.
Carpenters Legacy maintains a Las Vegas residency at The Modern Showroom at Alexis Park Resort Hotel. The show was voted “Best Impersonator” (Bronze Winner) for the 2021 Best of Las Vegas awards and was also voted “Best Impersonator” (Silver Winner) and “Best Tribute Show” (Bronze Winner) for the 2022 Best of Las Vegas awards. Carpenters Legacy has played to performing arts centers, cabarets spaces including the famed Triad Theater in NYC, and SOLD OUT showrooms in Las Vegas and all over the country. Carpenters Legacy was featured at the Carpenters 50th Anniversary Celebration in Thousand Oaks, CA in April 2019. Olson is the first-ever and only Karen Carpenter tribute artist to perform with the world-renowned Las Vegas based revue Legends In Concert. Carpenters Legacy: A Christmas Portrait features a powerful live band, historical commentary, lovely arrangements and video, taking audiences on an incredible journey down memory lane into the world of the Carpenters – the world’s ONLY authentic Carpenters tribute in sight and sound.
“Merry Christmas everyone! And welcome to the joy of the holiday season! It’s that time of the year when spirits are high, and all our dreams and fantasies can come true.
It’s the best time of year when the best things of all happen…
with a little magic.”
