From Judy to Bette

Details

Marvellous melodies and scandalous headlines from the Golden Age of Hollywood!
It’s the 1930s, movies are being made faster than you can say MGM, and being made to make you feel good. Budgets are increasing and the studios are making pictures bigger and bigger. Within the industry, four women emerge who refuse to be “just another ingénue”.

Judy Garland, Betty Hutton, Lucille Ball and Bette Davis each made their own strides to make women a more prominent and powerful force in Hollywood.

Rebecca Perry is a power-house performer all the way from Canada, and in this show she sings the songs that helped make these stars famous, as well as telling their remarkable stories.

Rebecca says:

“The show is a power-punch of cabaret style entertainment that chronicles the life and times of Bette Davis, Judy Garland, Betty Hutton and Lucille Ball: four trailblazers, who saw their value before anyone else did and fought for the roles that made them famous… and infamous.

I grew up idolizing these women when I felt like I couldn’t relate to the role models in my generation. Something resonated with me in regards to that Old Hollywood charm that Bette, Judy, Betty and Lucille possessed. They paved the path for women of talent and drive, making it okay to be more than just a pretty face.”
