Typhoon Judy Sweeps Into RB for One Night Only
Rehoboth area theatergoers have an amazing experience in store with the upcoming July 28 performance of the play Typhoon Judy starring Christopher Peterson.
The show, produced by Bruce Preufer and Mini-Bear Productions, will be at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center for one night only, and that’s actually the time period covered in this new play with music about legendary diva Judy Garland.
The show tells of one night in 1965 Hong Kong, when a typhoon is on the way, and Judy herself is a storm to be reckoned with! A scripted play, Christopher plays Judy through more than 20 songs and song snippets, three costume changes, and a whole lot of musical history.
“I’m so happy to be bringing the show to Rehoboth, “says its star Christopher Peterson, “audiences at the beach have seen what I can do with Eyecons, but this is something totally different.”
Now he’s putting the finishing touches on this tour-de-force performance as Judy—arguably one of his most haunting and perfect impersonations.
Tickets for the July 28 performance of Typhoon Judy are available online or by calling 302-227-5620.
