News Marlboro College Hosts Queen City Radio Hour, October 9

Marlboro, VT -- (September 20, 2010) -- Kingdom County Presents will stage the all-original Queen City Radio Hour (QCRH), 7:30pm, Saturday, October 9 at the Whittemore Theater at Marlboro College.

The Queen City Radio Hour promises an evening of sly comedy and world-class music while giving audiences of all ages a peek behind the scenes of an actual radio variety show being recorded for later broadcast. Every Queen City Radio show is different, with an emphasis on comic sketches that jump from the headlines and life in the North Country.

The October 9th edition will include actors Abby Paige (Windy Acres, Judevine, Piecework), Lucien Dodge (Cartoon Network), storyteller Willem Lange, and Marlboro's own Heather Reed ('11) and Amber Schaefer ('10), with Gahlord Dewald ('98) on sound effects. Music headliner is jazz singer, Samirah Evans, performing with a special jazz ensemble, Charlie Schneeweis and Friends.

All-new Queen City sketches will include the Slender Pickens Rural Dating and Mating Service, In-Laws Holiday Travel Bureau, State Legislator Rivets' Fireside Apologies, and The Only Vermont Gubernatorial Debate to Include the Word "Giblet." Willem Lange will also lead listeners on an unforgettable 100th anniversary hike along the Long Trail, where everything that could possibly go wrong-does.

QCRH head writer is Sascha Stanton-Craven, media editor and contributing writer for America's favorite satirical newspaper and online outlet, The Onion. The show is produced and directed by Jay Craven who created the first two editions for Burlington's 2009 International Waterfront Festival to celebrate the 400th anniversary of French explorer Samuel de Champlain's 1609 lake expedition into Vermont.

The Queen City Radio Hour is presented by Kingdom County Productions, working in association with Marlboro College. Admission to the show is free and all are welcome.

Sponsors for the Queen City Radio Hour include Cabot Creamery, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Vermont, and The Vermont Community Foundation. Series funding has also been provided by the Vermont Arts Council and The National Endowment for the Arts. For more information contact Kingdom County Productions at 802-592-3190 or kcp@pshift.com.
