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, January 17th, with a 2 pm matinee and an 8 pm evening performance where beer and wine will be available, and Sunday, January 18th, at 2:00 pm only. Tickets are on sale now at the Shepherdstown Public Library or online at www.foslwv.org—$20 for adults and $10 for children under 12. All proceeds will benefit the 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!
