High Heels, High Kicks and High Chairs...

Wendy Walker is not your ordinary mother!

Suburban Showgirl is an inspirational one-woman tour de force written by and starring Palmer Davis.  Davis creates the character “Wendy Walker”…wife, mother of two, and professional dancer-whose life is not turning out quite the way she had hoped.  While working as a magician’s assistant in Las Vegas, a backstage mishap forces Walker to evaluate her life like never before…in the five minute before curtain! During an emotional journey through her past, Walker relives some of her most pivotal moments…and comes to a decision that will change her life perspective forever.  Coping with the unpredictable demands of career and family, Wendy Walker’s journey takes her down a path to self-acceptance, and the strength and courage to…”just be.”
