Get Happy! – Celebrating 100 Years of Judy Garland, The World’s Greatest Entertainer

October 5 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Havre de Grace Opera House

It’s been 85 years since the world first heard Judy Garland sing about a place “somewhere over the rainbow,” and her star power is just as potent as it was then. Why? What is it about Judy that continues to build new generations of infatuated admirers? Join Jenna Pastuszek and Broadway Music Director Joshua Zecher-Ross in this 100th birthday celebration of the world’s greatest entertainer. With “lavishly clever arrangements”, and “witty, endearing personal stories”, this isn’t a traditional Judy Garland tribute — there will be no impersonation here. Instead, lifelong Judy fans will love the cleverly curated playlist of beloved classics and forgotten gems while millennials and Gen Zers will discover an artist who transcends time. It’s time to celebrate live entertainment again, and “forget your troubles, come on, GET HAPPY!”
