Laura Ellis who appeared in last season’s surprise hit Kit and the Kats returns to the Columbia stage transforming from Rock and Roll sweetheart to Film Noir vixen in Femme Fatale. Intrigue, double-cross, feminine wiles, and fabulous songs. It’s a musical tale from a time when movies were black and white and the singers were sizzling. The plot? Classic Film Noir. Lonely guy meets beautiful dame. Lonely guy falls for beautiful dame. It is all downhill from there—for him, that is. An irresistible songstress, memorable tunes, and a clever con. All revealed with music, song, and vintage film clips, woven into a new stage show.

Glamorous, sexy and deliciously wicked, Jekyll & Hyde is the enthralling musical based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic story about a brilliant but obsessive scientist whose alter ego wreaks havoc across Victorian London. An evocative tale of two men – one a doctor, passionate and romantic – the other, a terrifying madman; and two women - one, beautiful and trusting –the other, beautiful and trusting only herself. Both in love with the same man and both unaware of his dark secret.
Born Floyd Elliot Wray on August 22, 1960 in DeQueens, Arkansas, country artist Collin Raye was one of the true hit makers of the 1990’s. Collin still continues to crank out soulful, heartfelt material with the honesty and richness that is signature to his vocals alone. With 24 top ten records, 16 #1 hits, and having been a 10 time male vocalist of the year nominee (5 CMA and 5 ACM), this truly electrifying performer of his era remains one of the great voices of our time. Collin Raye is nothing if not passionate. His soulful delivery has set country standards in such searing ballads as “Love, Me,” “In This Life,” and “Not That Different.”
