The Executive Directors of the Campus Theatre, CommUnity Zone, and the Lewisburg Downtown Partnership are excited to introduce
The Live From Lewisburg Variety Show will premiere on Sunday, November 21, at the Campus Theatre in Downtown Lewisburg, and will be a regular part of Lewisburg’s cultural life into the future. The show, performed with a live audience, and streamed globally online, is intended to be a showcase of the professional artistic talent in the Susquehanna River Valley.
For approximately three quarters of an hour, our host Gary Hardcastle, the rockabilly band, the theatre’s organist, our projectionists, and a crowd of guest players will guide our audience through vignettes, performances, and observations both funny and sincere.
The Live From Lewisburg Variety Show will feature music, dance, comedy, flashes of vaudeville, live television, the circus, and dust covered 8mm home movies. The Live From Lewisburg Variety Show will embrace the playful and nostalgic variety show format, and—against the patina of the historic Campus Theatre—pull the variety show into the 21st Century!
Like other variety shows before us—The Ed Sullivan Show, Prairie Home Companion, Laugh-In, and The Muppet Show, the Live From Lewisburg Variety Show will bring our audience all the things that have made variety shows popular over the years. This show will offer the opportunity to enjoy a live, intimate on stage performance as well as offering the show to an unlimited number of viewers by streaming the program online.
