THE ICE TREATMENT by Nate Eppler
(A world premiere production)

Directed by Nate Eppler

Starring: Rachel Agee, Amanda Card Compton, and Tony Nappo

Left behind on the garbage heap of history and misremembered by everyone (herself included), the world’s most infamous Olympic figure skater struggles to reinvent herself as a screenwriter by pitching the blockbuster screenplay of her own amazing life story and her spectacular triumph over stunning adversity. Armed with an old video camera, two actors she hired off craigslist, plastic fashion dolls, and homemade model ice rinks, she sets out to tell the real story. And she isn’t going to let the truth get in her way. Originally developed as part of the Nashville Repertory Theatre Ingram New Works Project, this knockout comedy is about what we remember, what really happened, and what we do when we’re the only person who believes we’re the hero of our own story.

July 15-17 and 21-24 at 7:30 p.m. (Sundays at 4 p.m.)
Belmont’s Black Box Theater

Actor/Singer Becca McCoy and Jazz Trio La Lucha Perform Together for the First Time, with Songs of the “Great Girl Singer” at Palladium Side Door.

From the Press Release:

June 28, 2016 (St. Petersburg, FL) – On Friday, July 15th at 8pm, AN EVENING OF ROSEMARY CLOONEY, a new musical program created and performed by Becca McCoy and La Lucha, premieres at the Palladium Side Door to kick off the Summer Jazz Series.

With a varied and indefatigable career spanning six decades, from a GRAMMY-nominated chart-topper to a masterful interpreter of the American Songbook, Rosemary Clooney was one of America’s musical treasures.  AN EVENING OF ROSEMARY CLOONEY brings La Lucha and Becca McCoy together formally for the first time, having previously performed selections together at the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance’s MUSE Awards in 2015 and 2016.  Becca’s “firm mezzo” (Elkhart Truth) and “larger-than-life voice” (Goshen News) and La Lucha’s “high regard for style” (The Examiner) both evoke and pay tribute to this preeminent and once-in-a-lifetime performer!
