VIC MIZZY BOWLS OVER HOLLYWOOD BOWL AUDIENCE
Los Angeles, CAThink there's anyone alive who doesn't know the words to "The Addams Family" and "Green Acres" TV themes? Well, that idea will be put to the test on the evening of July 9th at the Hollywood Bowl, 2301 N. Highland Ave. in Hollywood. when Vic Mizzy, composer of those vintage tunes and dozens of other classic melodies, leads a sing-along at TELEVISION NIGHT AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL II. Accompanied by The Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, Mizzy will guide the audience through spirited renditions of both themes. Hosted by Joe Mantegna, the performance, which begins at 8:30 p.m., will spotlight the work of TV's great songwriters and composers.
"'The Addams Family' and 'Green Acres' are probably the most famous themes in the history of television," says Mizzy. "So how could they possibly do an evening like this without me? I'm looking forward to it, and I guarantee that the audience is in for a fun time, too."
Since writing "The Addams Family" and "Green Acres" in the mid-1960s, Mizzy has consistently remained busy. Late last year he released SONGS FOR THE JOGGING CROWD, his debut non-soundtrack album, spotlighting ten entirely new numbers, written and performed by the renowned composer, including "Name Dropping," which inventively lampoons the Hollywood 'in crowd,' and the bittersweet yet beautiful "When Your Dreams are Younger Than You." His themes have also graced more than a dozen movies, including the classic Don Knotts comedies "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken" and "The Reluctant Astronaut," along with such TV fare as "Mister Ed," "Petticoat Junction" and, of course, "The Addams Family" and "Green Acres."
