Doris Day will come to life in Langley during a performance of “Que Sera! Celebrating Doris Day.”

The musical will show at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1 at the Whidbey Island Center for the Arts.

The singing star is portrayed by Portland resident Kristi King. The performance will include a retelling of her life stories and feature her hit songs such as “Que Sera, Sera,” “It’s Magic,” “Everybody Loves a Lover,” “Perhaps,” “Lullaby of Broadway,” “Love Me or Leave Me,” “Making Whoopee” and more. King is accompanied by the Hans Brehmer Quartet. This is the second time the musical has performed in Langley.

“It’s such a thrill to honor her and the music,” King said. “I love the music and love the songs.”

King said she enjoys playing the famed singer. She especially enjoys watching the audience react to her performance.

“It takes them back,” she said. “The biggest thrill is seeing people sing along and remember.”

Joan Merrill, a producer for the musical and Bellevue resident, said it’s gratifying to see the audience enjoy the show.

“Audiences just love it because they love Doris Day,” she said. “They love those songs; it takes them back to another day.”

King will also be roaming the streets of Langley in full costume as Doris Day the day of the performance.

A portion of ticket sales and CD proceeds will be donated to the Doris Day Animal Foundation, an organization which Day founded.

Tickets are available at the arts center for $28, $20 for groups of 10 or more. The arts center is located 565 Camano Ave., Langley. For more information, visit or call 360-221-8268.
