Rebecca Frezza coming to Plymouth

A Wayzata organization is bringing a kid-friendly rock star to the western suburbs.

PBS Kids and Noggin artist Rebecca Frezza will perform Saturday at Central Middle School Auditorium, 305 Vicksburg Lane N. in Plymouth. The show is part of Wayzata Family Learning Center's community concert series. Last year, Disney recording artist Ralph's World drew more than 1,700 people, said concert organizer Karen Burkhartzmeyer.

This is Frezza's first live performance in the state, she said. Her shows feature dancing, singing and her band, Big Truck.

The concert -- billed as both kid- and parent-friendly -- benefits the Family Learning Center, a program of Wayzata Public Schools. Tickets are $13 and are on sale at www.tix.com or at Toy World stores in Wayzata, Edina and Chanhassen.

For more information, contact Burkhartzmeyer at 763-577-9833 or kburkhartz@comcast.net.
