2019 History Talk Series:
• Ashland Musical Variety Show Retrospective – The Complicated and Hilarious History of the Ashland Musical Variety Show! with Sue Watson, Lorie Foley and Tom Wulf, Sunday, March 10, 2019, at the Ashland Theatre, 205 England St. Sue Forbes Watson co-founded the Ashland Musical Variety Show in 1982 as fundraising event for the Hanover Arts and Activities Center. The show has been performed every other year since 1983, with Lorie Foley joining the production team in 1997. Construction plans for R-MC’s Blackwell Auditorium prevented the show from being held this year.
There will be two presentations – 1pm and 4pm. Tickets are $10 per person, with proceeds benefitting the Ashland Museum and offsetting the cost of Ashland Theatre rental. The Hanover Arts and Activities Center is producing a special commemorative program. The program will directly benefit The Center, which has relied on the variety show for funding for the past 37 years.
