The Ohio State University at Marion

Five Nights finale brings back Hollywood’s Golden Age

May 02, 2017

Five Nights on Campus proudly welcomes Laura Ellis in Cinema Sweethearts to Ohio State Marion’s Morrill Hall Auditorium, Thursday, May 11th at 7:30 p.m.

In the Golden Age of Hollywood, singing starlets like Judy Garland, Doris Day, and Shirley Jones sent audiences home from a night at the movies humming unforgettable songs. Jazz singer and classic film buff, Laura Ellis has created a wonderful show celebrating Hollywood’s iconic leading ladies – and the songs that made us fall in love with them.

Cinema Sweethearts features silky-voiced performances of classics like “Que Sera, Sera” and “Till There Was You,” sprinkled with fun celebrity trivia, movie clips on the big screen, and accompaniment by veteran film and TV arranger and pianist John Rodby at the grand piano.

Tickets for Laura Ellis in Cinema Sweethearts are now available. Tickets are $10 general admission, $9 for seniors (60 and up), $4 for students, (grades k-12, and college), and $8 for campus faculty and staff.

All performances begin at 7:30 p.m. in Morrill Hall Auditorium. Doors open at 7 p.m. All tickets are general seating. For tickets, sponsorship opportunities, or more information on Five Nights contact Gary Iams at: (740) 725-6253 or e-mail:
