Radio Hour Christmas Special at WTA’s Gateway in Waynesboro
The Gateway Theatre in Waynesboro hosts a special dessert version of the River City Radio Hour to celebrate the season. The performances will feature some of the Radio Hour’s favorite performers. The Boogie Kings will be joined by singers Hank Fitzgerald and Chrystal McKee. Singer/composer John Tracy will showcase his new Christmas CD. Marsha Howard and the River City Players round out the evening of song, comedy, and theatre on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 20 and 21, at 8 pm and Sunday, Dec. 22 at 3 pm.
Richard Adams has promised that the Boogie Kings will give William Hayes and J. T. Fauber plenty of time to demonstrate their musical skills. The trio will back up Hank Fitzgerald and Chrystal McKee in renditions of holiday songs to make the heart glow.
John Tracy also returns to the Radio Hour. The songs by this Texas native have been described as music for real people living real life. He says they are born of a desire to bring hope and encouragement to his listeners. This is especially true of his new Christmas CD, Christmas Tree Shine which has some of John’s own compositions as well as his Christmas favorites.
Marsha Howard has been naughty and nice and says Santa is rewarding her with a bag full of new jokes.
Bill Martin and Dustin Roadcap will add to the evening’s drama with two original Christmas stories written exclusively for the Radio Hour. Jim Gustafson’s The Gift of the Magpie returns to the Flattened Fauna Grill while The Basic City Boys by Richard Adams recreates two boys’ best Christmas ever.
