    Country Music Hall of Fame Show at the Masonic Theatre
    Saturday, November 3, 2018

    Locality:
    Alleghany County
    510 Main Street
    Clifton Forge, VA 24422

    The Country Music Hall of Fame Show Featuring Hall of Fame musicians Richard Kiser and Charlie McCoy, as well as Jason Coleman, the grandson of renowned Hall of Fame piano player Floyd Cramer. Guitarist Kiser, a Chet Atkins protege and member of four halls of fame, tours about 140 shows per year around the country and works with schoolchildren regarding bullying, drug use and the need for abstinence. He is a strong supporter of Wounded Warriors, for which he does several shows per year pro bono. Charlie McCoy is a living legend on the harmonica. He has been a fixture in the Nashville recording scene for more than 50 years and can be heard on recordings with Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan and others. In addition to the more than 12,000 recording sessions he has been a part of, Charlie has released over 35 of his own albums.  And Coleman, the youngest of the performers, plays piano regularly at Dollywood and joins Kiser and McCoy on several tours each year.  The unique combination of Jason’s piano, Richard’s guitar, and Charlie’s harmonica simply has to be heard rather than explained. Each artist’s unique style is put in the spotlight through the fun, familiar songs they play – and when their styles are put together, the result is something truly special.

    “IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE: LIVE FROM WVL RADIO THEATRE” This 1940s radio style adaptation of Frank Capra’s film classic is a guaranteed holiday winner. The four-member company masterfully conquers multiple characters & sound effects while saving their radio station from a winter blizzard’s doom. A heartwarming, uplifting gift for audiences The story focuses on George Bailey, a man who has given up his dreams in order to help others, and who faces a bank crisis not of his making. He falls apart and contemplates suicide on Christmas Eve. This brings about the intervention of his guardian angel, Clarence Odbody. Clarence shows George all the lives he has touched and how different life in his community would be had he never been born. But there is also a frame story. The actors are merely last minute substitutes who are caught in a snowstorm at the radio station. When the regular actors can’t get to the studio, stagehands and administrators are forced to improvise and play all the parts themselves, without rehearsal, in order to keep the station from closing down.

Alexa Rose has the rare ability to find strikingly original melodies that nevertheless sound like they must have existed for a long time, stored away maybe in the ether of creativity, self-evident and awaiting discovery. Moving deftly between complex dexterity and heart-tugging familiarity, Rose achieves a sound that pushes gently alongside the bright vocal experimentalism of Joni Mitchell and Joanna Newsom while maintaining the brassy attitude and simple refrains that run straight through American roots music from mountain ballads to rock n roll. Rose spent her formative years curating original music in the Blue Ridge, including Covington, releasing two albums in her early twenties. You can often catch her sporting her dusty Frye boots in some southern lagoon, or on the regional radio stations that spin her latest full-length release, "Low and Lonesome." Written on a hand me down guitar from her mother, the title track is a toast to Rose's heritage, and its anthem-like chorus haunts the listener with a somberness evocative of Gillian Welch.

But Harold is more interested in wrestling than girls—even when a beautiful maiden claiming to be Princess Marigold appears at the castle.

    MEN IN THE PARISH BASEMENT? WHAT’S A CHURCH LADY TO DO? Find out when the talented touring company of actors stops in Clifton Forge for an afternoon of theatrical high-jinx. “Rise Up O Men” gives the gents a chance to shine in the latest installment of the Church Basement Ladies musical comedy series. This sidesplitting, uplifting peek into the lives of the rural Norwegian Lutherans who audiences first fell in love with in 2005 is the sixth chapter of the story begun in the original Church Basement Ladies. Rise Up O Men features familiar faces: Mrs. Mavis Gilmerson, Mrs. Vivian Snustad, and Mrs. Karin Engleson who would never leave the basement kitchen unattended, of course (who would make bars for the youth group meeting?). But as they busy themselves with preparations for their church's participation in the town’s 1964 Centennial Celebration, we get to see their coming and goings from the eyes of the menfolk, who have their own problems to solve. Karin’s husband Elroy, farmer Carl and Great War vet Arlo are joined in brotherhood by series staple Pastor E.L. Gunderson. Their camaraderie unites them as they deal with furnace salesmen, looming retirement, rival Protestant denominations, the Pastor’s bad jokes, and Arlene’s even-worse cooking.   **By contractual arrangement, there are only Adult, Senior and group ticket rates for this production.**
