The Towle Theater is proud to welcome Rita Rose for a one-night engagement on Thursday, Dec. 18.
Rita Rose is the alter ego of singer/actress Rachelyn Primm. She has been performing all over Chicago with her Rockabilly Cabaret Show. For the Holiday Season, she has created a Holiday Themed Rockabilly Cabaret Show. The Rita Rose Show stars the 1950’s darling, Rita Rose, who shares stories of her transition from showgirl life in NY to living in Chicago, her quest for love, and even life tips.
She sings the music of the fabulous ladies of 1950’s Rockabilly as a celebration of their work in addition to her own original songs written in a similar style.
Rita Rose was inspired by the role of Rita in “White Christmas” after Primm played the role in a production directed by Ron Chisholm in North Carolina. She loved the role so much and saw that she was a huge hit with the audience, so she chose to write that darling doll as a character that could star in her own show.
The show has been described as “a delightful combination of music and comedy lights up the stage as we are magically transported to the late 1950’s and treated to a refreshing spin on the music of the season with a flavorful twist of Rockabilly. You won’t be able to stop your toes from tapping to the tunes as only the lovely and incomparable Rita Rose can belt them out while her wit and wisdom keeps you smiling from start to finish.”
The performance is at 8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 18. General Seating begins at 7:30 p.m. and the box office opens at 7 p.m. Tickets are only $17. Children under six years of age are not permitted in the theater.
