Experience the songs of MGM’s swing-singing starlet from her early days in radio and motion pictures with “A Date with Judy! The Songs of Young Judy Garland” at 8 p.m., Friday, October 5 and Saturday, October 6 at the Stocker Arts Center on the campus of Lorain County Community College.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under, and can be ordered online at or by calling the Stocker Arts Center box office at (440) 366-4040 from 12-6 p.m., Monday through Friday. Tickets are also available at the box office, located in the lobby of the Stocker Arts Center. The show is part of the Studio Theatre Cabaret series and will be performed in the intimate setting of the Studio Theatre.

The show will take you back to April 21st, 1944, where Joan Ellison has joined WCLE radio host Mark Flanders, pianist Jason Aquila, and The Melody Maids trio (Kimberly Godfrey, Lauren Emily Jones, and Ellison) high atop Cleveland’s Terminal Tower for an afternoon of popular song hits, including “Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart,” “The Trolley Song,” “Over the Rainbow” and many more.

This is the new-and-improved version of the show that played Stocker’s Studio Theatre to sold-out crowds two years ago, with added songs and singers. Theater seating is limited to 150, so don’t wait to book your seat for this popular show.
