LAS VEGAS FLASHES Cont. from Preceding Page Theatre in Anaheim, present ed the show, with George Ab bott responsible for the staging. Bright star of "A Funny Thing Happened On the Way To the Forum," and chief hilarity h a w k e r is Dick Shawn, who Is ably assisted by Jack Gilford, John Carradine, and an excellent cast, all from the original New York company. In addition to its music, singing, dancing and comedy situations, the show is distinguished for its lineup of some of the most beautiful showgirls west of the Hudson River. Two performances will be given nightly in the Riviera's swank Versailles Room, and "A Funny Thing Happened" is in for an extended run. * * * ALTHOUGH he has made numerous appearances on the Danny Kaye television show, was featured with Debbie Reynolds during her Strip debut IS months ago and has done numerous video commercials, the name probably doesn't mean too much to you at the present time. But, once you see Monte Proser's all-new ''Ziegfeld Follies" at Hotel Thunderbird, the name Jerry Antes will be one you'll not forget for a long, long time. Dark-haired Jerry, a native of Seattle, Wash., is the No, 1 male principal in the record- breaking m u s i c a l and throughout the 90-minute production has you shouting for more. As an example, when Antes goes through his Al Jolson medley each performance, t h e a t r e - r e s t a u r a n t guests shake the rafters with their applause with many persons o p e n l y shouting "More, more." Columnists who reviewed the opening weekend per- formances all agree that Antes is destined to hit the big-time through his outstanding work in "Ziegfeld Fol lies." Having the rare combination of a great voice and dancing ability, Antes also has the looks necessary to gain a movie contract. The performer chuckles when asked to give a rundown on his professional work. "When I was eight years old in Seattle I was billed as a miniature Fred Astaire at the Palomar Theatre. Today I'm a full grown Fred Astaire in the "Ziegfeld Follies!" (He's featured as Astaire in one major number). Actually, Antes has been a very busy singer-dancer. His first big break came when he was with Betty Hutton at Las Vegas' Desert Inn. She was Instrumental in gaining a contract for Antes with Columbia Studios where, like many contract players, he was lost in the shuffle. But he did finally make a film, Opposite Sex" for Metro. Through Lucille Bali, he was contracted to Desilu Studios where he performed in the "Desilu Revue" and later appeared in a Westinghouse spectacular. Following the Debbie Reynolds show at the Riviera the young performer hit the video jackpot -when he was signed for the Danny Kaye 1963 television season. Married to the very attractive Peggy Antes, who also was a professional actress before her marriage, Antes now calls Northridge home. Through "Ziegfeld Follies" you can almost be certain that Antes' days of looking for bigger and better roles are over. Once producers from California to New York see the talented lad in action, you can be certain there will be a long lineup at his dressing room door, all eager to get his name on a contract. * · * DI3HNTTTIVB Teresa Brewer has an eye open for a S O N G S T E R Duke H a z l e t t h a s demonstrated drawing power during return stint at Travelyn, Sepulveda, resulting in holdover until end of month.
