Over The Rainbow with Cat.
Let's fall in love with the divine Judy all over again! After a run of many delicious shows at Auto & General Theatre on the Square, CAT SIMONI returns with Cat Sings Judy! Over The Rainbow with Cat & JudyGarland. Written and directed by PAUL SPENCE, Cat Sings Judy! embraces the songs and life of the precociously talented girl from Grand Rapids, Minnesota they called 'Judy Garland' - the girl with the unique voice who was described by Fred Astaire as "the greatest entertainer who ever lived". So come on, 'Strike Up The Band!', 'Get Happy' - and let's soar over that old rainbow one more time with glorious Judy and lovely Cat. Join us for Cat Sings Judy! on a magical trip down the yellow brick road of wonderful memories, 'Till The Clouds Roll By'.
