Tenderly, the Rosemary Clooney Musical

Director Sharon Mann Metts

Rehearsals start on or after 2/11/19
Performances:  Saturdays and Sundays 4/21/19 – 5/19/19

Tenderly, the Rosemary Clooney Musical is not a typical “juke-box musical.” It offers a fresh, remarkably personal, and poignant picture of the woman whose unparalleled talent and unbridled personality made her a legend. In Tenderly, Rosemary Clooney’s journey starts with her simple Maysville, Kentucky childhood and follows her rise to Hollywood stardom.

With her signature songs woven in and out, we learn both the story of her successes on film, radio, and TV, as well as her struggles in her personal life – with a career fading during the advent of rock-and-roll and her battles with addiction and depression. Audiences stand and cheer as they rejoice at her triumphant comeback and even more successful career as a jazz singer.

Available Roles:

  • Assistant Musical Director (Vocals Focus)
  • Stage Manager
  • Sound Board Operator
  • Costume Designer
  • Pianist, Bassist, and Drumer for Tech and Performances
