Ventriloquist, comedian to hit WCU stage
Ventriloquist Lynn Trefzger and comedian Glenn Singer will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 27, in the Bardo Arts Center at Western Carolina University.
Patrons will be treated to Trefzger’s vocal illusion talents, when they may meet a drunken and lovable camel, a grumpy old man, a feisty little girl, and audience members who are brought up for the action. As well, Singer is, quite simply put, a man who rides a horse-of-a-different-color onstage.
The event is part of WCU’s Galaxy of Stars series. Tickets are $21 for adults, $16 for WCU faculty and staff, and $7 for students and children.
