Rumsey Radio Hour Stage
Rumsey Radio Hour
Saturday and Sunday
Jan 30th and 31st


After last year's incredible turnout the Rumsey Radio Hour returns to Shepherdstown at the beautiful new Marinoff Theater at Shepherd University on Saturday, January 30, and Sunday, January 31. Saturday features a 2:00 pm matinee and an 8:00 pm evening performance. Sunday features the 2:00 pm matinee only. At a "talk back" with the cast after Saturday evening's show, beer and wine 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 Pirates of the Potomac return! And those running for office beware! 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; WSHC Radio COO Todd Cotgreave; and other famously talented artists including Todd Coyle, Laura First, Clissy Funkhouser, Grace Geiger, Nina Geiger, Don Oehser, Jade Tremba, Ed Zahniser and Lois Spreen. 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!
