“Wine Women and Song,” a new original musical comedy, will be presented Saturday at the Townsend Town Hall. Shows times are 2 and 7 p.m. with seating at 1 and 6 p.m.

Music by troubadour Pat Lowery starts a half-hour before each show, which involves a studio audience attending a taping of “Fruit of the Vine,” a weekly series broadcast on WINE-TV.

Show announcer Char-Donnaye (Marcia Wahoske) introduces the guests, who chat with host Rhee Sling (Kathleen Marsh) before performing a musical number or comedy routine. Jon Marsh has a cameo role as curmudgeon janitor Jack Daniels. Scott Wycherley is Charles DeGallo, and Al Benson is studio cameraman and sound director.

The show features one of Granny Nanny’s hilarious Sleepy-Time Stories for Grownups (Marcia Wahoske); questions from the audience for distinguished psychologist Dr. Truth (Cheryl Paulson); wine country travel tips by Tanya Trucker (Annette Neitzer); Beauty Tips for the Terminally Tipsy from FuFu LaFemme (Marilyn Karow); Senior Wit and Wisdom with geriatrics specialist Goldie Oldie (Melody Stake); and an unforgettable live demonstration preparing Roadkill Ragu by world famous chef Julia Wild (Cindy Jonet).

Adult beverages and soft drinks will be available. Tickets are $8 and sold at the door (adults only please). All proceeds benefit the Holt & Balcom Logging Camp Museum in Lakewood.
