After last year's incredible turnout the Rumsey Radio Hour returns to Shepherdstown at Shepherd University's Marinoff Theater on Saturday, January 21, and Sunday, January 22. Saturday features a 2:30 pm matinee and an 8:00 pm evening performance. Sunday features the 2:30 pm matinee only. At a "talk back" with the cast after Saturday evening's show, beer, wine and snacks will be available. Originally performed 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. The star-studded local cast includes WHAG's own Mark Kraham; nationally acclaimed story teller and Shepherd University Appalachian Studies professor Adam Booth; Shepherd Professor Emeritus Phil Bufithis; and other famously talented artists including Todd Coyle, Laura First, Clissy Funkhouser, Grace Geiger, Nina Geiger, Don Oehser, Ed Zahniser, Hope Snyder, the Asbury Church Ambassadors Choir (Saturday matinee only) and the Speakeasy Boys (Sunday matinee only). The production is once again directed by Peggy McKowen, Associate Producing Director of the Contemporary American Theater Festival (CATF). For awesome music, zinging political satire, hilarious comedy and tall tales galore, this is a not-to-be-missed event! Seating is limited and the performances sell out quickly, so buy your tickets now!
