Patricia Alice Albrecht, the Voice of Pizzazz on "Jem and the Holograms" to Speak at Nashville Doll Club Sept 1


Patricia Alice Albrecht, the Voice of Pizzazz on "Jem and the Holograms" to Speak at Local Doll Club Sept 1


Patricia Alice Albrecht, best-known as the voice of Pizzazz on the 1980s animated television program Jem & The Holograms, will be the special guest speaker at the September meeting of the Belle Meade Plantation Belles Doll Club. The meeting is free for first-time visitors and guests are welcome to attend.

Jem and the Holograms was a colorful line of rock 'n roll dolls which began production in 1985. The Jem dolls  launched the animated television series that ran from 1985 to 1988. The "Jem and the Holograms" television show, which was based on the doll characters and follows the adventures of Jem and her rival Pizzazz, is still in syndication today. The voice of Pizzazz was provided by West Nashville's Patricia Alice Albrecht

Albrecht did a poetry meeting on Thursday, August 25 at The Front Porch at Scarritt-Bennett where she shared a transparent look at her life through her poems.  She also shared a couple of poems including "Where Do Birds Go to Die?" from her CD collection "A Touch of Pizzazz" (2009), which was recorded for fans of "Jem and the Holograms."

In a recent interview for Yahoo ("Patricia Alice Albrecht,  the Voice of Pizzazz,  Talks About TV's 'Jem & the Holograms'"), Albrecht compared herself to the character of Pizzazz saying, "We both love to perform, and we love color. We both love music, to sing and dance, and if I could have traveled half as much as Pizzazz, wouldn't that be perfect? But my life is not over yet, so that can still happen!"

At the doll club, Albrecht will speak about her time as Pizzazz on the Jem series and she might share a poem or two. The doll club will feature a display of some of the dolls from the Jem and the Holograms line of dolls made by Hasbro in the 1980s. The place of honor will go to the lime-green haired, misbehaving Pizzazz of The Misfits.
Albrecht will autograph Jem memorabilia for $5 at the end of the meeting, which promises to be "truly outrageous!"

The Belle Meade Plantation Belles doll club meets the first Thursday of every month at Shoney's in Bellevue at 7 PM. Patricia Alice Albrecht will be the special guest at the Sept. 1 meeting. Email barbieintn@yahoo.com for details or to RSVP.

When dolls disappoint: Ebay Euphemia from Tonner Cinderella


When dolls disappoint: Ebay Euphemia from Tonner Cinderella

When Dolls Disappoint

I have had two disappointing experiences with badly cut doll hair since slowly getting back into the doll collecting world over the past few months. One was a Tonner Tiny Betsy County Fair Fun and the most recent was a Tonner Euphemia listed on Ebay. I ordered both dolls oonline, because I don't know of any stores in the Nashville area that sell Tonner dolls. Part of the problem with ordering items online is dealers and Ebay sellers frequently do not offer full descriptions.

Patricia Alice Albrecht, the Voice of Pizzazz, Talks About TV's 'Jem & the Holograms'

Interview with Patricia Alice Albrecht of Jem & The Holograms

For kids growing up in the 1980s, one of the classic animated series on television was "Jem and the Holograms," based on a series of dolls made by Hasbro. The story-line was simple and focused on an all-girl rock band called The Holograms headed by "Jem" (the alter ego of music company owner Jerrica Benton). There was a weekly dose of action, music and colorful fashion as the ambitions of the good-hearted Holograms were often thwarted by rival band, The Misfits. The Misfits was headed by spoiled bad-girl Pizzazz, whose voice was provided by Patricia Alice Albrecht.
