St. Charles (Illinois) Chronicle, 17 Sept. 1931:

Trixie Friganza, Stage and Vaudeville Star, at Arcada Sunday

It is seldom that a headliner in vaudeville such as Trixie Friganza can be secured for a theater in a city the size of St. Charles so it is with a feeling of pride that W. L. Pracht, manager, announces that she will appear on the bill with the regular acts next Sunday afternoon and evening.

Trixie Friganza calls herself the Grand Duchess of Comedy. She is certainly a royal comedian, so royal in fact that inasmuch as Miss Friganza is going in for titles she might rightly call herself The Queen of Comedy. Miss Friganza has established herself in every form of amusement. She is a vaudevillian par excellent. She is known wherever vaudeville contributes to American entertainment and she has done much in making Britain understand American humor.

She has been seen as the star of innumerable musical comedies, but now Miss Friganza is in vaudeville, and vaudeville is justly glad of that fact. Miss Friganza in "A Trip to Hollywood" provides the most likable kind of fun and songs. She just bubbles magnetism. Whatever she does is liked. Her sense of humor is even bigger than her stature and she knows how to sing a song as few singing comediennes can.
I am not related to nor researching this family and have no further information.
