SHE’S NO DUMMY – Southeastern Louisiana University’s Columbia Theatre will present ventriloquist and comedienne Lynn Trefzger on Friday, Oct. 7, as part of Fanfare, the university’s annual October festival of the arts, humanities and social sciences.

     HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts will present ventriloquist and comedienne Lynn Trefzger in one performance only on Oct. 7, at 7:30 p.m.
With a trunk full of zany characters that have accompanied her to stages throughout the country, Trefzger and her many voices have appeared on ABC, TNN, A&E, and Lifetime, said Columbia Theatre and Fanfare Director Roy Blackwood.
     “Lynn Trefzger’s vocal illusion talents were first brought to national audiences on TV’s ‘Star Search,’ and she has since performed with artists including Jeff Foxworthy, Ray Romano, Drew Carey and Faith Hill,” Blackwood said. “Her off-the-wall audience interplay is riotously funny, and her performances are tailored for both family and adult audiences.”
     Trefzger, Blackwood said, was also featured in a comedy/documentary about the art of ventriloquism with Jay Johnson and Jeff Dunham called “I’m No Dummy” by NBC Universal.
     Tickets for the performance range from $15 to $30 and are available at the Columbia Theatre box office, located in downtown Hammond at 220 East Thomas St., online at, or via phone at 985-543-4371. Box office hours are from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and one hour before performance times.
