Event description

Description

The Missouri River Regional Library Foundation in Jefferson City would like to take you back to a time when life seemed pretty simple for those growing up! Years when the entire family would gather around the radio in the living room every night.

Perhaps it was listening to Edward R. Murrow and his nightly newscasts or your grandparents or even great-grandparents listening to the music of Benny Goodman and Glenn Miller? It was also a time when the great comedians and radio serials entertained millions.

That's why the Library Foundation is presenting a series of 4 live old-time era performances just the way you would have heard them on the radio from the 1930s and 1940s. A way for both young and old to capture a by-gone era.

Reader's Theatre performances will be Friday September 29th and Saturday September 30th remembering the hilarious comedy team of George Burns and Gracie Allen. No matter how mixed-up and befuddled Gracie could be...George was always there ready to rescue any conversation this legendary husband and wife team had.

In addition, you'll see performances as you would have heard them featuring the classic western, before it went to television, "Gunsmoke"...remembering Dodge City's Marshall Matt Dillon. As well as "Lights Out"...and the legendary comedy of Abbott and Costello including everyone's favorite skit..."Who's On First?"

Doors open at 6:30 both nights with performances beginning at 7. Friday night will be for ages 21 and over with Missouri wines and desserts being served. Tickets in advance just $12 or $15 at the door. Saturday night will be for all ages with beverages and desserts being served. Tickets for Saturday night just $10 in advance or $12at the door.
