Sudbury Theatre Centre presents From Judy To Bette: The Stars of Old Hollywood from Feb. 20-29, featuring some of your favourite stars from the golden age of Tinsel Town.

Created and performed by Rebecca Perry with piano accompaniment by David Kingsmill, the play weaves together scandalous headlines and iconic songs as it guides audiences on a journey through the groundbreaking careers of four screen legends: Judy Garland, Lucille Ball, Bette Davis and Betty Hutton.

Each broke the mold by taking Hollywood’s studio system to task and opening doors that had previously been firmly shut for women in the industry.

Perry is a Toronto-based playwright, performer and producer. Her solo shows have toured from coast to coast in Canada, around the UK and to the Republic of Ireland. From Judy to Bette is her most recent work and has just returned from a successful run at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where she received four- and five-star reviews and audience acclaim.

From Judy To Bette: The Stars of Old Hollywood runs for 10 performances. Purchase tickets by calling 705-674-8381 ext. 21, or visiting the box office, 170 Shaughnessy St. You can also purchase tickets online at sudburytheatre.com.

There will be a pay-what-you-can performance on Feb. 22 at 2:30 p.m. (cash only, at the door) and a relaxed performance on Feb. 29 at 2:30 p.m.
