“To Dad with Love”: A stunning multimedia tribute to entertainer Buddy Ebsen, featuring vocalist Kiki Ebsen and her band 
Kiki Ebsen and her brother, Dustin, invite you to enjoy a marvelous evening honoring their father, Buddy Ebsen. “To Dad with Love” features Kiki’s songs drawn from her latest CD, "Scarecrow Sessions," named for Buddy’s first starring role (that he ultimately lost) in “The Wizard of Oz.”  Sharing favorites from the Great American Songbook, Kiki guides the audience along a grand musical journey. From vaudeville forward, Buddy danced his way from stage to the screen as an MGM contract player. Kiki shares poignant personal memories of growing up in a famous family, and how Buddy’s handling of career challenges shaped her own journey as an entertainer.
