A TRIBUTE TO THE LEGENDS TO BENEFIT YOUTH

With CHER and BARBRA


February 25, 2009 (Jupiter, Fl) - A Tribute to the Legends is coming to the Maltz Jupiter Theatre on Wednesday, March 4, 2009, presented by the Theatre's Guild to benefit the Theatre's Conservatory of Performing Arts (COPA).

The impersonators for Cher and Barbra Streisand will make you believe the legends themselves are performing live onstage. Betty Atchison (Cher) has performed exclusively for Celine Dion and Rene Angelil on their private yacht. Her exciting shows feature award-winning Bob Mackie-style costume replicas. As an industry recognized voice/double for Cher, she was also recently featured at the Cher Convention in Caesar's Palace, Las Vegas.

Developing a Streisand act has been a natural progression for Joan Rose H.H. She was always told how much she looked and sounded like Streisand, and first tried impersonating Barbra at a masquerade party where the response was phenomenal. She decided to develop her "Barbra Persona" and has now mastered the look and sound.
This Tribute will be at 7:30pm and tickets are $40 each. For tickets and more information please call the box office at (561) 575-2223 or visit the website at www.jupitertheatre.org.
