Thursday 18th September at 7:30pm

Over the Rainbow is a compelling award-winning Musical, which tells the Life Story of this legendary artist, following Eva’s life through dramatic scenes and stunning live renditions of her music including a haunting interpretation of ‘Somewhere over the Rainbow.’

Before she died at the tender age of 33, she was unknown outside Washington, USA  but within 2 years, she was discovered by Terry Wogan who promoted her music to the top of the album charts in the UK and now Europe, Australia and throughout the World. 

A talented and world-class Cast of Actors and Musicians recreate her original arrangements and recordings which have received accolades from Mick Fleetwood and Sting and tributes from Nora Jones, Katie Melua and Chris De Burgh. 

This Show pays a genuine and heartfelt tribute to a true Artist who was not interested in fame and fortune, but wanted nothing more than to create beautiful music. 

From its’ first performance in 2004, Over the Rainbow, has moved people immensely with sell-out performances and standing ovations throughout the UK and Europe. 

This is more than the Life Story of Eva Cassidy which is an absolute must-see  for all Eva Cassidy Fans,  its’ a Show for anyone who’s lost someone they love.
