Take a step back in time with the Walpole Players
The doors will open at 6 p.m., when audience members may arrive bringing their own dinners, snacks and beverages of choice. Round tables for eight will be provided so all may dine in comfort, then sit back and listen when the Players commence the live broadcast from the radio studio on stage. When we "sign off" for the evening, guests are welcome to linger, visiting with neighbors and chatting with the radio performers.
We understand the Bickersons are in another predicament, and what show is not complete without the Farm Report, a few classic advertisements and popular hit tunes of the era? A cast of about 25 local entertainers, many who you will remember from years past, is currently assembling to present this year's version of "The Follies" to provide you with laughs and great memories for an hour and twenty minutes (more or less). Among them might be appearances by Fibber McGee and Molly, George and Gracie, Abbott and Costello, Andy Griffin, Bob and Ray, and many more. Among the musical entertainers will be Mike Delaney who will sing a Frank Sinatra song.
The last four years have been sellouts, and this year the Players anticipate all tickets will be pre-sold. Ticket are only $10. per person for a grand evening out. Tickets are available at Joanie Joan's Baked Goods Company on Westminster Street in Walpole. Table reservations must be made at the time of ticket purchase. Anyone with questions or seeking further information can call Ray Boas at 603-756-4545.
Mark your calendars now for March 18, gather your friends, and pack your dinner and beverages to join the fun back in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s when life was a tad simpler.
