Sunny and Greg Thompson are pleased to announce that the award-winning and critically acclaimed one woman play "Marilyn: Forever
Blonde" will perform a limited five performance run at the beautiful El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood from Thursday, August 2nd
through Sunday, August 5th celebrating the life of Marilyn Monroe as part of her 50th memorial.
Sunny Thompson has been working with Mary Sims of "Immortal Marilyn" to create a special evening for Marilyn fans visiting Hollywood for
the memorial weekend. Sunny and Mary are inviting all "Immortal Marilyn" members and their guests/friends to a special performance of
"Marilyn: Forever Blonde" on Saturday, August 4th at 8pm to see the play, view a collection of beautiful Marilyn Monroe photographs in the
El Portal Gallery and attend a champagne reception, hosted by Sunny and Greg Thompson in the theatre's new "Monroe" theatre.
The parking lot for the El Portal theatre during the evening is the parking lot for Lankershim Elementary School where Norma Jeane attended
grade school in 1937. Mary tells us that Norma Jeane attended Lankershim Elementary during the sixth grade and won two gold medals at the
school's annual track meet! Sunny will cut the ribbon opening the new "Monroe” theatre along with North Hollywood dignitaries at a
ceremony scheduled for the memorial weekend as well.
At the special Saturday night "Immortal Marilyn" Gala, "Immortal Marilyn" ticket buyers will attend a special "talk back" session with Sunny
and the play's author, Greg Thompson after the performance. The fans will receive a free personally autographed 8x10 photo of Sunny and a
free collectible poster from "Marilyn: Forever Blonde".
There will also be a drawing for "Immortal Marilyn" fans for a giant gift basket of "Marilyn: Forever Blonde" memorabilia including a four-
color program, playbills from various theatres around the world in which "Marilyn: Forever Blonde" has been presented, postcards, a
soundtrack CD, a poster, assorted rack cards, a press kit and a bottle of "Marilyn: Forever Blonde" champagne.
The El Portal Theatre has built a special show called “FAN CLUB Marilyn Forever Blonde” where the seating is all in the center section of the
theatre for "Immortal Marilyn" members and guests for the 8pm performance on Saturday, August 4th.
