Rumsey Radio Hour returning
After a too-long- interval Rumsey Radio Hour is returning to Shepherdstown with performances at the beautiful new Marinoff Theater at Shepherd University on Saturday, Jan. 17, with a 2 p.m. matinee and an 8 p.m. evening performance where beer and wine will be available, and Sunday, Jan. 18, at 2 p.m. only. Tickets are on sale now at the Shepherdstown Public Library or on line at www.foslwv.org/ and are only $20 for adults and $10 for children under 12. All proceeds will benefit the excellent programming at Shepherdstown Public Library.
Performed originally from 1989 to 1995, and revived in 2004, the Rumsey Radio Hour is Shepherdstown’s version of National Public Radio’s Prairie Home Companion. It features music and comedy, with a full array of old-time radio sound effects. It was last performed in November 2012.
The Pirates of the Potomac are back. The star studded local cast includes WHAG’s own Mark Kraham, nationally acclaimed story teller Adam Booth, WSHU’s own DJ Todd Cotgreave and other famously talented artists including Todd Coyle, Clissy Funkhouser, Phil Bufithis, Don Oehser and Laura First. For awesome music, zinging political satire, hilarious comedy and tall tales galore, this is a not-to-be-missed event.
Seating is limited and these performances sell out so buy tickets now.
