richard adamsRichard Adam’s Variety Show for January is just that “a variety” of talents.  The Harrington Family is headed by Jim Harrington, a member of the popular Valley band, The Rhythm Road.  Joining him are his daughters, Constance and Kate Harrington.  The Alexander Sisters take us back to the days of vaudeville when trios of talented youngsters combine skills into one package.  In this case, the trio plays, sings and has puppetry.  The Bonos are another team ready for the circuit.  Natalie Bono is a singer/composer and her big sister Rebecka is a dancer.  Expect new songs and fresh choreography.

The Jan. 3 performance will also include members of the cast of Pippin presented by the Shenandoah Valley Governor’s School in association with ShenanArts.  The Shenandoah Valley Governor’s School Theatre program serves approximately 30 gifted and talented 11th and 12th grade students from Augusta County, Staunton and Waynesboro. The SVGS theatre program is designed to give highly motivated theatre students the opportunity for intensive theatre study both in the classroom and alongside community partners such as ShenanArts and our professional guest artists.

Once again Richard and his co-host Bill Martin will encourage the audience to take part in Richard’s segments that highlight the audience’s special talents.
