World whistling title holder to perform at Palace Variety Show

CROSSVILLE — The Ms. Tennessee Senior Pageant will be presenting a variety show consisting of talent from across the state at the Palace Theatre on March 23 at 7 p.m. Frances Cunningham Brooks will be the emcee for this entertainment.

The 2011 World Whistling Title Holder Patricia Sonnier, who traveled to China to enter the world competition and walked away with the title, will be one of the performers. Sonnier has performed at various functions throughout the state, as well as on television. She was presented a special proclamation from the state for "Extraordinary Talent Who Have Brought Credit to the State." She specializes in oldies, light classics and Christian music and is available for entertainment for your group or organization.

The reigning Ms. Tennessee Senior America, Judith Barth, will also perform her talent that she did at the national pageant in Atlantic City. She is from Dayton, TN.

In addition, the program will include the 2009 Ms. Senior America, Olivia Haley, from Nolensville, TN, who performed a rap for her talent in the Atlantic City competition. Christine Dorris Johnson, formerly from Fairfield Glade, invites all of her friends to visit and

see her Minnie Pearl act. Carol Skiles, the reigning Ms. Senior Cumberland County, will be on stage along with other local

performers: Carlena Hesters, Shirley O'Conner, Slyvia Hale, Shirley Vess, Frances C. Brooks and Mary Conner.

Performances include impersonations, comedies, instrumentals, singers and dancers. All of these ladies have reached the "age of elegance" (60 and beyond) and have been entrants in the Ms.

Senior pageant. However, a special guest will be Terri Utsey, winner of the recent Gong Show, who will keep you in stitches with her comedy act.

Do not miss this unique gathering of talent. For convenience, advance tickets are available at Wisdom TV and Dylan's Restaurant. Reservations are not necessary, but come early for best seating. For additional information, call 248-1988 or the Palace at 484-6133.
