Award-winning singer and actress Ali Harper is coming to Baycourt Theatre with her highly-acclaimed show A Doris Day Special.
Doris Day, with her bubbly personality, lilting voice and blonde beauty, was America’s singing sweetheart of the silver screen during the 1950s and 1960s. With her hit songs Sentimental Journey, Secret Love and Que Sera Sera, she was for many years ranked as the no. 1 female box-office star in the world.
Directed by Stephanie McKellar-Smith with Big Band Musical Direction by Rodger Fox, it’s 1971 and Doris is filming her Television Special. You are invited to be a part of A Doris Day Special television studio audience and celebrate the life and songs of that quintessential girl next door.
