All Happiness, Judy Garland

“Forget your troubles, c’mon Get Happy” as Joan Ellison shines a spotlight on the musical and personal life of Judy Garland from her early years at MGM to her dramatic comeback as a concert artist and triumphant return to the big screen in A Star Is Born.  It’s Saturday night, October 24th, 1953 and Jane Telling is giving her “Goodbye to Hollywood Concert.” During her sixteen years in the MGM music department, she's seen it all, she sings it all…and she shares it all.

The parade of hit tunes performed in authentic arrangements based on the originals includes "Get Happy,” "The Trolley Song,"  "If You Feel Like Singing, Sing," “The Man That Got Away,” “The Joint Is Really Jumpin’ in Carnegie Hall,” "You Made Me Love You," “Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart,” "Rock-a-Bye Your Baby," "The Palace Medley," and “Over the Rainbow.”

(Premiering June 24, 2017 at the Winter Park Playhouse in Winter Park, Florida.)
