Ventriloquist to entertain all ages Friday at YMCA

Ty-Rone and his “friends”

by Ginger M. Inabinet

Summer is passing so quickly and the Summer Reading Club is coming to a close. We have had an exciting time “Being Creative @ the Library.”

During a program for rising 2nd and 3rd graders last week, I noticed a group of adults gathered at the doorway into the children’s room. They watched and listened intently and, after the program, several grown-ups told me they wished they could have joined the fun. I told them next time they should come right in and I would give them a box of crayons and they could join our group for the stories.

This week the library is sponsoring a very special program. Ventriloquist Ty-Rone and his “friends” will be presenting a fun-filled program at the Middlesex YMCA in Hartfield on Friday, August 7, at 2 p.m. This will be the last large group program of the summer.

A professional since 1994, Ty-Rone got his big break at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, where he learned how to attract and entertain guests by the hundreds. He has since performed at comedy clubs, festivals, fairs, schools, libraries, cruise ships, and has opened for various national artists throughout the USA.

“Ty-Rone’s World” ventriloquism show is full of energy and fun for all ages. Ty-Rone writes and produces his own comedy material and music to appeal to families of today and yesterday. He is “keeping it clean and living his dream!”

This will be an exciting show. Don’t miss it! And remember, the final reading logs are due on Tuesday, August 11, by noon. The Grand Finale Party will be held in Urbanna on Thursday, August 13, at 2 p.m. Happy reading!
