Indian Wells Theater

The Copacabana nightclub, which opened in 1940, featured legendary performers such as Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, Helen Forest, Peggy Lee and Ella Fitzgerald. The Copa also inspired the classic Barry Manilow song “Copacabana.”

Indian Wells Theater favorites Cassie Miller and Troy Clarke will sing some of these artists’ famous hits, including “That Old Black Magic,” “The Lady Is a Tramp,” “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” and “Copacabana.”

The concert features a full, live orchestra under the direction of OnStage Musicals’ Jeff Stover.

Tickets are $50 and can be purchased by calling the Indian Wells Theater box office at (760) 341-6909.

The Indian Wells Theater is located at 37-500 Cook St., between Gerald Ford and Frank Sinatra drives.
