Kaleidoscope Family Series features comedy and ventriloquism with Lynn Trefzger

Fun and laughter will be center stage when Rockefeller Arts Center presents “Comedy & Ventriloquism: A Family Show with Lynn Trefzger” on Friday, Feb. 4 at 7 p.m. in the Robert W. Marvel Theatre. This is a Kaleidoscope Family Series event recommended for ages 6 and up.

Trefzger is an award-winning ventriloquist/comedienne with a trunk full of zany characters that have accompanied her to stages throughout the country. She was named the 2006 Funniest Female Performer of the Year by Campus Activities Magazine as the result of votes by thousands of college students nationwide.

Her vocal illusion talents were first brought to national audiences on the television show “Star Search” and she has since performed with artists including Jeff Foxworthy, Ray Romano, The Smothers Brothers, and Drew Carey. She has appeared on ABC, TNN, A&E and Lifetime television.

Her off-the-wall audience interplay is described as riotously funny and her performance on Feb. 4 will be tailored for a family audience. Trefzger’s show is an interactive one, so your voice is not necessarily your own when you’re in the audience. You could find yourself next to a rather inebriated camel or with a new baby you didn’t even realize you had.

This event is sponsored by The Observer and The Post-Journal as part of the Lake Shore Savings Season.

Tickets are available by phone at 716-673-3501 and in person at the Campus Ticket Office in the Williams Center.
