The Vents are Back!!
After a triumphant, inspiring, and fascinating exhibit last
year featuring Ventriloquists and their dummies, Local
vent performer Nancy Dotterer gave the museum almost
30 of her performing Vents.
We wanted to display them, so we decided to repeat
"Ventriloquism - A New Dawn" as our winter-spring
Same theme - different vents.
Hurry if you want to see this exhibit -
it closes on April 26th
Ventriloquism with Dave Miller
Saturday April 18th @ 2:00 pm
Come and spend a fascinating session with Dave Miller as he
does some venting, talks story, and entertains you with his
ventriloquism talents and gives you a behind-the-scenes look at
American ventriloquism.Dave’s interest in ventriloquism began in
his early teens.
At that time the Edgar Bergen-Charlie McCarthy radio show
was very popular and was a big influence on Dave. He though to
himself: “Hey, I can do that!” He found a Charlie McCarthy doll
in a Goodwill store, and with the help of books on ventriloquism
found at the library, he learned how to put life into his newly
acquired partner. 50+ years later - he’s still at it.
Reservations Strongly Recommended $7.00 Ages 2-99
Adult Night at the Museum
April 24th @ 7:30 pm $15 for 1;
$25 for Couple
(21 & Older please)
Leave the kids at home and come for an evening of fun
as Chuck Mott & Friends perform once again. No
profanity - nothing vulgar- but naughty for sure! Chuck
may even let you try your hand at being a vent
performer. Wine & Cheese will be offered - Some of the
wines we will be featuring come from Chuck's own
Wandering Duck Winery. I guess this proves that either
(a) Chuck is a true Renaissance-style artisan, or (b) when
being a vent performer - don't quit your day job!
Reservations are a must! At the last session we turned
away eight people at the door because we were sold out.
