Movie Voices on Stage at Whittier College 

WHAT:                        “Hollywood’s Secret Singing Stars” in concert 

WHEN:                        8 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 26 

WHERE:                      Ruth B. Shannon Center for the Performing Arts

                             13406 Philadelphia Street, Whittier  

COST:                         $30 for the general public; $25 for students and senior citizens with
                             I.D.
 

ADD:                      While the names and faces may not be familiar, once these three
voices open up—backed by the smooth sounds of the Paul Smith
Trio—you will recognize some of the most famous music in
Hollywood history.  “Hollywood’s Secret Singing Stars” are Betty
Wand, Annette Warren and India Adams.  These three women
were the real, live singers whose voices were dubbed for such
performers as Ava Gardner in Showboat, Leslie Caron in Gigi, Rita
Moreno in West Side Story, Cyd Charisse in The Band Wagon and
Lucille Ball in Fancy Pants.  All three women have had successful
careers on their own, and together they make musical magic. 
Night Life Magazine said, “Incredibly, their voices have not
diminished with time.  Not only do they sound as they did then,
but the inclusion of other songs, not used in films, prove they are
still powerful, talented performers.”
