|Princess Theatre presents ventriloquist Lynn Trefzger|
The Princess Theatre will present its annual special event on Friday, Oct. 9 at 7 p.m.
This year's presentation will be the vocal illusions of renowned ventriloquist Lynn Trefzger. Theatre director Gene Thompson said the Princess is very excited about the evening.
"In past years we have presented more of the music genre for this event, but this year we decided to do something totally different." Thompson added that he hoped everyone would come out and not only support the theatre but watch a truly world-class artist.
Lynn Trefzger is a ventriloquist/comedienne with a trunk full of zany characters that have accompanied her to stages throughout the country. Named the 2006 Funniest Female Performer of the Year, by Campus Activities Magazine and nominated 2007 Funniest Female by American Entertainment Magazine, she was also voted Ventriloquist of the Year three times by her peers. Her off-the-wall audience interplay is riotously funny, and her performances are tailored for both family and adult audiences.
Lynn (and her many voices) has appeared on ABC, TNN, A&E and Lifetime television. Her vocal illusion talents were first brought to national audiences on TV's popular "Star Search" and she has since performed with artists including Jeff Foxworthy, Ray Romano, Drew Carey, and Faith Hill. Lynn warns that your voice is not necessarily your own when you're in an audience for her show. You could find yourself next to a rather inebriated camel -- or with a new baby you didn't even realize you had. Trefzger added that you should be extra nice to her "old man" Judd… he can get quite cranky and forthright. He's a cantankerous old man and he holds little back. Thompson said everyone should leave the theatre with a smile on their face.
"Each year we have these events to help offset costs of upkeep and maintenance of the theatre," said Thompson. "The Princess is such a vital, important part of the area and I know everyone recognizes its impact on the community, so come on out have a great evening with us. This will be a wonderful family-oriented event."
Ticket prices are $10 for ages 13 and up while ages 12 and under are $5. For more information contact the Princess at 318-435-6299 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
