Oh, my goodness! Look who’s coming to the library concert!

When the lights go down and the curtain comes up on this year’s annual Tyrone-Snyder Township Library concert, the sounds of such great hits as “I Got You Babe” and many more of Cher’s greatest hits will be filling the Tyrone Area High School Auditorium.
Is it possible that the Tyrone-Snyder Township Public Library has Cher coming to Tyrone?
“You may very well think so after the show starts on this year’s annual library fundraising concert, but in all reality it is a very talented young lady by the name of Brittany Ulrich,” smiled library concert chairman, Chuck Banas. “As you sit in the auditorium and watch and hear what unfolds on the stage you would think it is Cher. Brittany not only looks like Cher, but this talented young lady has her down to where you will catch yourself doing more than one double take as she performs.”
Brittany graduated magna cum laude from Point Park University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theater Arts. Through her collegiate career, Brittany performed in several university productions such as “Marat-Sade”, “On Our Town”, “Anything Goes” and “Hair”. Amidst her studies she made her television debut on Saturday Night Live on May 7, 2004.
Upon graduation in May of 2006, Brittany moved to New York City to continue her performance career. Since then she has appeared in an independent film with Lori Petty from “A League of Their Own”, and also appeared in the Gold Case episode of “30 Rock”, starring Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin. She also can be found in the upcoming Will Smith movie, “I Am Legend.”
Brittany is also an established vocal artist and impersonator. During the summer of 2006, she was more than honored to pay tribute to her all-time favorite diva, Cher, by appearing as a semi-finalist on ABC’s hit show, “The Next Best Thing.” She is one of the absolute best Cher impersonators you are going to see anywhere.
This summer she performed at Millbrook Playhouse doing summer stock. Brittany played the role of Virginia Lear in the comedic Catholic tale of “Do Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up?”
She is so blessed to be able to share her craft with so many. She considers everyday in the Big Apple unpredictable but yet so exciting and rewarding.
“I really think people are going to be just amazed with Brittany and the way she does Cher. I am sure people will be very, very impressed with what they hear and see,” added Banas.
This year’s concert is Saturday evening, April 19 at the Tyrone Area High School Auditorium. The doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. sharp. Tickets for the show are currently available at the following ticket outlets located in Tyrone: Bressler’s Food Mart & Sports, Kopp Drug and the Tyrone-Snyder Township Library. Tickets may also be ordered by telephone by calling a special ticket order number at 682-1017. All tickets are reserved seating. The monies raised from this concert go towards paying the mortgage on the library located in downtown Tyrone.
Next week The Daily Herald will bring you information on another performer from this year’s annual library concert fund raising event.
