From Hamner's Unbelievable Variety Show:
We are saddened to report Vadim Serkyh passed away April 1st after suffering an apparent heart attack. He was one of our star performers with his daughter Mariyah. Their performance of the most beautiful Aerial Adagio received rave reviews. They have been performing at our theater for close to 3 years and have also assisted with all of our illusions and special effects. Vadim and Mariyah received numerous awards in Russia which was their native homeland. They have also received awards here in the U.S.
Branson Tri-Lakes News reported that "Vadim Serykh was named among the 10 best athletes in Russia and received a master of sport designation, which is given to individuals who are international champions who have made valuable contributions to a sport."
Vadim and his wife Elena have started a dance studio for families who could not afford lessons. They have given back to the community by providing scholorships to low income families.
We are setting up a special fund for the Serkyh family. 100% of these donations will go to the family to assist with hospital, funeral costs, travel expenses and other financial obligations. Our sincere thoughts and prayers right now are with his daughter Mariyah and family. He will surely be missed by the cast and workers of Hamner's Unbelievable Variety Show.
