GREENVILLE--Comedienne/ventriloquist Lynn Trefzger will bring her trunk full of characters to The Bistro Off Broadway in Greenville on Feb. 7, 7 p.m., continuing Darke County Center for the Arts’ Coffeehouse Series season. DCCA’s Coffeehouse presentations take place in intimate venues where audiences can enjoy food and drink as well as a show.
Lynn Trefzger, who has been performing for over 30 years, first gained national attention with her appearance on Star Search. “Currently recognized as one of the best ventriloquists in the world, Lynn is also riotously funny,” said DCCA Artistic Director Keith Rawlins. “She has appeared on TV numerous times, entertained on various cruise lines, and performed on stages around the country to wild acclaim. Her show will be a lot of fun for the whole family,” Rawlins concluded.
According to Rawlins, Lynn’s many characters include a lazy camel named Camelot, Emily, a feisty girl whose life revolves around shopping, dieting, dating, and clothes, cranky old man Judd Wapner, and chief sidekick Simon. The ventriloquist also brings members of the audience on stage, who become human dummies mouthing witty words in surprising voices. “Lynn's vocal illusions are amazing, and her inventive humor keeps audiences laughing from the time the first character appears until the show ends,” Rawlins stated.
The Coffeehouse Series is sponsored by Julie and Tom Graber, Eileen and Steve Litchfield, and Rodney Oda. Darke County Center for the Arts also receives support from local businesses, foundations, and the Ohio Arts Council, which helped fund this program with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence, and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans.
Tickets for the Lynn Trefzger show are $10, and may be reserved by contacting DCCA, 547-0908, or purchased online at www.centerforarts.net. If any remain by showtime, tickets will also be available at the door. Those wishing to have dinner at The Bistro Off Broadway prior to the show should make reservations by calling The Bistro, 316-5000.
