Remembering Rosie, a tribute to the life and career of Rosemary Clooney, hits the stage this weekend at the Charlie White theatre.

Performers Patricia Duval and Lorraine Foster from Vancouver, accompanied by the Peter Dent Quartet, tell Clooney’s life story and career through songs and dialogue.

The show features some of Clooney’s early hits from the 1950’s, some pieces from her big-band years and her lounge act with 4 Girls 4. It finishes with a look at her 25 years recording with the Concord Jazz label.

“This show takes you on a delightful trip down memory lane which showcases Rosemary’s incredible talent and experiences,” said Duval, who’s been close friends with Foster for 35 years.

Both women have been actors for many years and always hoped to do a show together.

Remembering Rosie plays Sunday (Sept. 16) at 2 p.m. Tickets, $30 and $25 for seniors and students, are available through the Mary Winspear box office, at www.marywinspear.ca or at 250-656-0275.
