The seven time EMMY Award winning television icon ED ASNER is coming to the Memorial Opera House in Valparaiso on Wednesday, May 3rd, starring in his new comedy stage-play “A Man And His Prostate”.  Proceeds from the event will benefit the Memorial Opera House Foundation, whose vision is to ensure the long term sustainability of Memorial Opera House as an artistic and civic center for Northwest Indiana.

“It is an incredible honor to host Mr. Asner, an internationally recognized and accomplished actor, at the Memorial Opera House,” said Memorial Opera House Foundation President Julie Lauck.  “His appearance harkens back to the past when world renowned entertainers like the Marx Brothers, John Philip Souza and Buelah Bondi graced the stage of the Opera House.”

Ed Asner is one of the most honored actors in television history, with 16 EMMY nominations, seven EMMY Awards, five Golden Globe Awards, and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Screen Actors Guild.  He is best known for voicing Carl Frederickson in the Pixar box-office smash “UP” and for his many widely praised television roles with The Mary Tyler Moore TV series, Lou Grant, Roots, Rich Man Poor Man, The Good Wife, Criminal Minds, Mom, The Crazy Ones, Chasing Life and Men At Work.  He also starred in the telefilms “Buddy The Elf” and “All Of My Heart.”  Asner also toured across the country in his one man stage-play “FDR” based on the life and career of President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

“A Man And His Prostate” is based on Ed Weinberger’s true life experience while vacationing in Italy, and being rushed to a hospital for prostate cancer surgery.  Media critics have referred to the stage-play as a HILARIOUS evening of entertainment.  Weinberger has been showered with nine EMMYs, three Golden Globes and the Peabody Award.  He has written for Bob Hope, The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, The Dean Martin Comedy Hour, Taxi, and the Bill Cosby Show for eight seasons.

Individual tickets for this fundraising event range from $100 to $125.  A VIP upgrade is also available for an additional $100, which includes a Meet & Greet with Ed Asner, priority seating, hors d’oeuvres and a free cocktail.  Tickets can be purchase by calling the Box Office at (219) 548-9137 or online at www.memorialoperahouse.com

The Memorial Opera House Foundation is also seeking sponsors from businesses and individuals.  Sponsorship packages range from $500 to $5000.  Depending on the sponsorship level, the benefits can include premium seating, meet and greet with Ed Asner, open bar and promotional opportunities.  For more information, please contact Foundation President Julie Lauck via email at jlauck@valpo.k12.in.us
