Desert Favorite, Mara Getz To Bring A TRIBUTE TO MS. PEGGY LEE to The Arthur Newman Theatre, 10/28

Local singer Mara Getz will perform her latest one woman show A TRIBUTE TO MS. Peggy Lee at The Arthur Newman Theatre at The Joslyn Center in Palm Desert on Sunday, October 28, 2012 at 2 pm. The show will feature songs made famous by the music legend from the Great American Songbook along with stories about Ms. Lee's career and personal life and will complete the Les Michaels' LIFE IS A CABARET Sunday Series for this year.

Mara Getz career began at five in church where her mother, acting as choir director, nurtured her talent for singing and acting. In 1982, The Farm girl from Baker, Minnesota packed her bags and moved to Los Angeles and within no time was headlining in the nightclub circuit, which brought her to the attention of talent executives, and she was soon appearing on TV's "The Merv Griffin Show", "You Write The Songs", "Cop Rock", and as a 1985 finalist on "Star Search". Since then she has appeared at clubs across the country, opening for such legendary entertainers as Bill Cosby, Joan Rivers, Phyllis Diller and George Burns, and at Las Vegas' Caesars Palace for Jay Leno. She's done multiple concert tours of Europe and Asia, and theatrical roles in several musicals including Amanda McBroom's HEARTBEATS and MAIL by Michael Rupert and Jerry Colker.

Mara has recorded several CD albums including: IN YOUR EYES, GEORGE & Ira Gershwin: A MUSICAL CELEBRATION, and Cole Porter: A MUSICAL TOAST. Since moving to Palm Springs, Ms. Getz is a familiar face in major venues and local clubs as well as giving back to the community by lending her talents to many charity events. In her spare time, Mara is a brilliant jewelry designer whose work may be found in several boutiques as well as her weekly showings at The Atrium in Rancho Mirage.

Tickets are priced at $10 cash at the door. The Arthur Newman Theatre at The Joslyn Center is located at 73-750 Catalina Way, Palm Desert, CA, 92260. Call 760-325-2731 for show information.
