Backstage at the Egyptian: Interview with Vicky Torres

Interview Conducted by: Kevin Ray – Egyptian Theatre Intern

Vicky Torres is the Hotel Manager/Director of Sales at the Red Roof Inn in DeKalb. The Egyptian Theatre is proud of the many successful relationships with local businesses. This week we got a chance to talk with one of our hotel partners about the impact of the Egyptian Theatre.

Kevin: So Vicky, tell me a little bit about the Red Roof Inn?

Vicky: Red Roof Inn & Suites DeKalb is a combination of modern facilities, attentive service and convenience to downtown DeKalb. We are  located 1 mile from the Egyptian Theatre.

Kevin: How has your business been affected by the shows that come into town at the Egyptian Theatre?

Vicky: Anytime the Egyptian Theatre has an event we benefit. Whether it’s a local dance company,  Gaelic Storm, Rick Springfied,  OCB body building  competition, Ron White, or Todd Oliver.

Kevin:  Why do you think it is important to preserve the history of the Egyptian Theatre?

Vicky: All of these groups plus many more have stayed at the Red Roof Inn & Suites at one time or another. We have had several performers comment about the quaint, intimate atmosphere and it’s historical beauty. Life long memories are made at the Egyptian Theatre.
