Femme Fatale: Movies, Music, and Mayhem
October 18 - 7:30pm

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.
