Press release, Jan. 28, 2015
Entertainment is a long-standing tradition at Apple Holler’s Red Barn Dinner Theatre, so celebrating Frank Sinatra’s centennial is a perfect fit.
Famous entertainer Frank Sinatra’s approaching 100th birthday has inspired a unique experience at Apple Holler’s Red Barn Dinner Theatre, featuring the performer as well as special introduction by guest host, Marilyn Monroe.
Of course, the real Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe won’t be making an appearance, but rather two local performers bring these famous entertainers to life during Apple Holler’s Fabulous Frank Sinatra event.
“Entertainment is a big part of what we do here at Apple Holler,” owner Dave Flannery said. “Entertainment was, obviously, a big part of Sinatra’s livelihood. So it makes perfect sense that we celebrate the life of Frank Sinatra in our own theatre.”
Ed Franks will perform as Frank Sinatra. Franks has been performing his show, The Sinatra Tradition, for the past 15 years. Complete with familiar hand gestures and one-liners, attendees will enjoy listening live to a collection of songs by Sinatra. This will be Franks’ first appearance at Apple Holler’s Red Barn Dinner Theatre.
Lori Minneti is a repeat performer at Apple Holler, who will be making her appearance as Marilyn Monroe. Lori has been in over 20 productions at Apple Holler. Lori may be recognized from television appearances – Fox6 Builders Showcase host, Racine Harley Davidson Commercials, Wisconsin Lottery host and more.
The Dinner Show will be on 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 28 and 4 p.m. Sunday, March 1. A themed meal, dessert, beverage, show, tax and tip all included in the $49.55 price per ticket. All shows by reservation only. Visit Appleholler.com or call (262) 884-7100 for ticket information.
Apple Holler is located between Racine and Kenosha, on the west side of I-94, just north of the highway KR exit. Apple Holler and the Flannery Family Farm is a restaurant, bakery, gift shop and apple orchard, and features many entertainment activities, including the Red Barn Musical Theatre shows, children’s shows, barnyard animals, outdoor play areas for children, hay wagon rides, and fall apple and pumpkin festivals.
