The Sandwich Town Hall Preservation Trust will present “The 3rd (not so) Annual Sandwich Town Hall Radio Musical Show” on Saturday, September 19, at 7 PM as the inaugural performance on the Glass Town Stage at town hall.
This lively musical variety show will feature local town personalities singing, dancing and doing comedic routines as a “rhubarb” radio show. The format of the program will be that of a local old time radio show complete with commercials, master of ceremonies, a larger-than-life announcer and bossy stage hands, Bob King and Tobin Wirt, telling the audience when to applaud and when to laugh.
Featured will be some of Sandwich’s favorite local performers including the Ellis Family singers with the grand dame of Sandwich music and radio diva Jane Ellis, James (Jimmy) Ellis and Kathy Ellis Knowles. Local real-life radio personality Dave Read will play the announcer and selectman Patrick Ellis will play the part of the master of ceremonies.
Performers also include Carol McManus in “Carol’s Literary Nook Readings for a Mad World,” Christine Norton reprising her role as Annie, and Mickie McManus with tap dancing. Other locals will be showcasing their talents with the help of pianist Marge Dolby.
