ATHENS, Ohio (April 25, 2005) -- Nancy Cartwright, the voice of Bart Simpson, will perform her one-woman hit show, "My Life as a 10-Year-Old Boy," at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 5, in Templeton-Blackburn Memorial Auditorium at Ohio University.
General admission tickets are $6 and are available at the Memorial Auditorium Box Office.
Cartwright last performed at Ohio University in fall 2001 during the Homecoming Festivities. She is returning to raise money for a scholarship fund she created that promotes the education of an Ohio University student who is pursuing forensics and who is a performance graduate from Kettering Fairmount High School in Dayton, Cartwright's alma mater. "Ohio University supported my dreams and goals by awarding me a scholarship back from 1976-1978. This scholarship is a small way of returning the favor."
In addition to Nancy's role on "The Simpsons," she is currently the voice of Chip Kelly on the acclaimed series "The Kellys," a broadband animated series about America's favorite racing family that can be seen online at www.sportsblast.com.
Cartwright attended Ohio University from 1976-1978. Following her time at Ohio University, she transferred and graduated from UCLA with a bachelor's degree in theatre.
Cartwright has been providing the voice of Bart Simpson, among other characters from "The Simpsons" since 1987, when the show got its start on "The Tracey Ullman Show."
In addition to the Athens show, Nancy will also announce her scholarship to students at Kettering Fairmount on Friday. That evening Nancy will perform "My Life as a 10-Year-Old Boy" for fans in Dayton.
