VINCENNES, Ind. - A holiday concert featuring “Silver Bells and
Diamonds” and an afternoon of family-friendly fun will help ring in
the holidays season Dec. 15 and 16. The events are provided by the Red
Skelton Museum of American Comedy and will be held at Vincennes
University’s Red Skelton Performing Arts Center, 20 Red Skelton Blvd.
Saturday’s 7:30 p.m. (EST) concert will highlight the timeless

instant hit called “Little Darlin’” which continues to sell worldwide
and has been dubbed by many as “the National Anthem of Rock and Roll.”
The Diamonds perform in a variety of venues and settings worldwide and
note that they have been pleased to find a growing audience among all
age groups who love songs they can understand, remember, and actually
sing along with.
Tickets for the “Silver Bells and Diamonds” concert are $40 for
reserved seating and $35 for general admission. Tickets for an
exclusive pre-show reception in the Museum cost $10 and will include
hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. Tickets can be purchased online at

Participants will also enjoy free admission to the Museum which will
be offering 15 percent off museum store merchandise.
RED SKELTON MUSEUM OF AMERICAN COMEDY and RED SKELTON MUSEUM FOUNDATION
The Red Skelton Museum Foundation is dedicated to both
preserving and sharing the legacy of Vincennes native Red Skelton, an
internationally recognized entertainer whose talents included comedy,
pantomime, painting, composing, and writing. Rising to the heights of
popularity in television, radio, and motion pictures, Skelton earned
the admiration of millions of fans, including the Indiana Legislature
that backed the construction of the $17 million Red Skelton Performing
Arts Center at Vincennes University. Adjoining the Center is the Red
Skelton Museum of American Comedy, a fully interactive museum that
explores American comedy in the context of Red’s life and comedic
genius, showcasing it in a variety of formats. Donations may be sent
to the Red Skelton Museum Foundation, 20 Red Skelton Blvd. Vincennes,
