Pigeon Forge, Tenn., April 18, 2014 — Pigeon Forge, Tenn., has had many unusual conventions and meetings in its history but not like this. On Thursday, April 24, everyone and everything will be talking. That’s the day ventriloquists will meet to honor one of their own. From Falmouth, Mass., Harold Crocker and his wife, Louise, will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary in Pigeon Forge.
What started out to be a quiet lunch with local ventriloquists has turned into a mini -convention. The organizer of this event, Bob Hamill, a ventriloquist with “The Blackwoods Morning Variety Show” is inviting all ventriloquists and anyone in the public who would like to join in this event to come to “The Blackwoods Show” on April 24 at The Smoky Mountain Opry Theater. Showtime is at 10:00 a.m. and the show stars Bob and his wife, Marty Hamill, as well as R.W. and Donna Blackwood and the Blackwood Singers. Special guest performers for that day only will include: Mark Merchant, “cruise ship king,” from Atlanta, Ga., Ken Groves, corporate and Amish theater performer from Ohio and Phillip Jones from South Carolina. All Sevier County people can get into the show for free for this one day only with a can of food for the Sevier County Food Ministry and proof of working or living in Sevier County. After the show, all ventriloquists are invited to go to lunch at the Golden Coral in Pigeon Forge at 1:30 p.m.
Hamill stated “Pigeon Forge is host to more ventriloquists than any other city of its’ size. It started with Alex Houston and continued with Stephen Knowles, Tim Harkleroad, Kyle Schribner, Liz Culbertson, Jackson Smith, and my wife, Marty. This will be a great day of ventriloquism and friendship. I encourage all ventriloquists to bring a figure as well as your spouse.”
