Event Details

Comes Home to Vergennes!

A very special evening is in store for folks on Saturday, January 25, 2020, when comedian, musician, actor and all-around entertainer, Rusty DeWees returns to the Vergennes Opera House for a terrific night of humor, storytelling and great music. 

This intimate evening is a return visit for Rusty after filming his first video in the then "rough around the edges" Vergennes Opera House in 1997. Since then his popularity has grown and the Opera House got spiffed up quite a bit.

"The Vergennes Opera House was perfection for filmed comedy," said Rusty. "That's why I picked it from hundreds of options for my first video 22 years ago. Also the Vergennes was teh perfet essene of my show, and it still is. I can't wait to come back!"

Rusty has taken his stage show around Vermont over the past several months with his TINY TOWN HALL TOUR and, even though Vergennes' isn't a "town" so to speak, it does fit into the "tiny" part of his tour quite well. The Town Hall Tour has a cozy feel to it and it certainly is filled with some local flavor. 

Here's a little video to give you the flavor of the evening: Rusty DeWees-A Short Film

Actor/Comedian Rusty DeWees is known for his THE LOGGER persona— full-on comedian, burgeoning musician, —Rusty's one-man comedy shows are best described as Blue Collar Comedy meets Prairie Home Companion. “Easy to love the core Vermont areas: I’ve played them deferentially, and with great affection dozens of times - area audiences feel like old friends at this point …"

Here's Rusty's take on the evening:
“For the TINY TOWN HALL TOUR - Vergennes-style,  I’ll perform an all-new set of original comedy, and I’ll perform an original poignant piece Vermont Farmers will especially understand. I’ll throw in a classic Logger “bit” or two, sing, play guitar, and of course there’ll be crowd work, so don’t come late … or sneeze if you don’t want to be in the show.”

Tickets are available online here for $20 for adults BEFORE January 1st, $22 after that, and $25 at the door. Students/children are $15.
