Guild to stage variety show featuring comedic, musical arts

HARRISTON 50ȻƵ An evening of sketch comedy and music is in store for audiences of the Grey Wellington Theatre Guild50ȻƵs next production.

Dubbed Not Your Typical Variety Show, the production is set to hit the stage at the Harriston Town Hall Theatre later this month.

Creator Bob Harron, a long-time guild member, says the show is styled along the lines of old-time television variety shows such as Laugh-In and Hee Haw.

50ȻƵIt50ȻƵs fresh, and it50ȻƵs new. And it50ȻƵs different, something we50ȻƵve never done before, in this town … we50ȻƵve never had a sketch comedy show,50ȻƵ said Harron.

50ȻƵIt50ȻƵs just gives the audience another way to experience life theatre.

50ȻƵIt50ȻƵs kind of a slapsticky 50ȻƵ Sometimes off the wall,50ȻƵ he added, and the humour in the show is aimed at adult audiences.

Sketches will be interspersed with local talent acts in a show billed as 50ȻƵan evening of music and accidental comedy.50ȻƵ

The production includes a large cast of actors and music makers from throughout the Grey-Wellington area.

The show runs June 21 and 22 at 7:30pm at the Harriston Town Hall Theatre. Tickets, available at the door, are $15.
