The Girl Singer: A Tribute to Rosemary Clooney
The music of America’s sweetheart and foremost “girl singer” will be highlighted in two upcoming performances at the Racine Theatre Guild. “The Girl Singer: A Tribute to Rosemary Clooney” with Ellen Winters takes the stage Saturday and Sunday, June 28 and 29, at 2519 Northwestern Avenue (Highway 38) in Racine.
From the beginning of her career as a teenaged lead singer with a touring big band to her Hollywood debut and beyond, Rosemary Clooney was one of America’s sweethearts. While her most notable role was in Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas,” Rosemary Clooney’s singing career spanned nearly 60 years.
Joining Ellen are area favorites Don Lobacz (of Four Guyz In Dinner Jackets), Sam Steffke (piano), Hal Miller (bass), Jim Ryan (drums), Peggy Peterson Ryan (vocals on Saturday), Chanel Le Meaux (vocals on Sunday).

Tickets are $15 for adults, $13 for seniors (62 and older) and $10 for students (21 and younger).
