Broadway musical and opera Diva Sheila Wormer sings "The Loveliest Night of the Year" with music by Juventino P. Rosas and lyrics by Irving Aaronson & Paul Francis Webster in the International Tour of Salute to Mario Lanza, in which she starred with tenor Tony La Stella and co-authored with Thomas Chambers. The show received three 1997 Hollywood Pillon Awards, including the authors and Best Vocal Duo for Ms. Wormer and Mr. La Stella, and Best show of the Year for of the year for Ms. Wormer and Mr. Chambers. Salute to Mario Lanza toured for 6 years to sold out audiences with rave reviews from critics and venues. Joe Curreri [who played baseball with Mario Lanza in South Philadelphia and was publicity director in the Mario Lanza Institute and Museum for 45 years] wrote this in the Italian Tribune News: A sell-out crowd sits in silence anticipating the country-wide tour Salute to Mario Lanza. The lights dim. The curtain rises, and the spellbinding magic of Mario Lanza takes over. Live, on stage, in colorful costumes, a thrilling tenor and a vivid, exciting soprano sing duets, and individually and take your breath away. La Stella closely captures the Lanza style without ever being an imitation. Likewise, Wormers performance is reminiscent of the great divas who shared the screen with Lanza. Her rich powerful soprano brings memories of Kathryn Grayson. A high note extravaganza. Festa Italiana said After booking this show for three consecutive years, it continues to draw a large receptive audience, seldom leaves a dry eye in the house, and repeatedly receives encores and standing ovations. Sheila Wormer has performed over 50 roles in opera, operetta, musicals and plays, including Butterfly (Madama Butterfly), Mimi and Musetta( La Boheme), Tosca (Tosca), Magnolia (Show Boat), and Kathie (The Student Prince), and Lizzie ( 110 in the Shade). She has appeared with such companies as Cleveland Opera, Columbia Artist National Tours, Salzburg Music Festival, Tampa Bay Opera, and M&M American Dance Theatre. Films include the Independent release of Every Vote Counts, which received First prize in the 2004 Philadelphia Film Festival and First Prize in the Monte Carlo Festival (Satelite Division) that same year. Sheila is featured in the film soundtrack for Every Vote Counts and can be heard on numerous musical theatre and opera recordings. Ms. Wormer is currently touring in her acclaimed one woman show "I Feng Shui-ed My Suitcase": a life in song, which Variety deemed "A touch of class, without a flaw!"
