From Staff Reports 

HENDERSONVILLE — The Hendersonville Community Theatre will present a show featuring singer Wendy Jones — backed by pianist Richard Shulman, bassist Zack Page and percussionist Rick Dilling — in “Everything Is Rosie: a Tribute to Rosemary Clooney.”

The one-weekend show will be performed at 7:30 p.m. July 17 and at 2 p.m. July 18 at the HCT at 229 S. Washington St. in Hendersonville. Tickets are $30 for the general public and $25 for student/military attendees.

“Everything Is Rosie” tells the story of singer-actress Rosemary Clooney’s rise to top of the Billboard charts in the 1950s, her success in Hollywood in films like “White Christmas,” followed by her mental breakdown, and finally her triumphant return to the top of the jazz charts in the 1980s and ‘90s. “It is a compelling story of heartbreak, tragedy, perseverance and triumph,” an HCT press release stated.

“As Wendy takes the audience on a riveting trip through Rosemary’s life, she interweaves some of Rosemary’s most-beloved hits, such as ‘Come On a My House,’ ‘Half as Much,’ ‘Hey There,’ and ‘Tenderly,’ as well as songs from her movie musicals, including ‘White Christmas’ — and jazz standards by composers, such as George Gershwin, Duke Ellington and Harold Arlen,” the release noted.
