What’s Hot: Santa Monica Playhouse Presents “Hebrew Hillbilly” Thursday Night:

Hebrew Hillbilly

— Thursday, March 14 at 8 pm

— Santa Monica Playhouse, 1211 4th Street

— Admission: $30.

A musical rock ‘n’ roller coaster ride chronicling singer, songwriter Shelley Fisher’s Hollywood odyssey that begins in the heart of the Mississippi Delta in her hometown of Memphis, Tennessee, birthplace of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Blues and Bar-b-cue.

It features 14 original songs written by Fisher, Ken Hirsch, and Harold Payne. Growing up Jewish in the deep South with a flamboyant mother who frowned on her dating the local redneck boys, Fisher began singing as a little girl and never stopped.

After completing her graduate work in fine arts and drama at UCLA, she recorded a solo album on Fantasy Records, rocked the disco charts with her hit rendition of “Wonder Woman” on Roadshow Records, and wrote “Disgorilla,” the sequel to Rick Dees “Disco Duck.”
