Press Release: Historical goes Hysterical - It's the First Annual Hysterical Society Variety Show!

On Friday, June 21, from 8 to 10 pm at the Cooperage, the Wayne County Historical Society will put the ࢀœfunࢀ in fundraising at the ࢀœFirst Annual Hysterical Society Variety Show.ࢀ Everyoneࢀ™s favorite emcee, Bob Mermell, will present an evening of entertainment by local talent, while the audience enjoys an ࢀœall you can eatࢀ dessert buffet, including coffee, tea and water.

For many years, the Societyࢀ™s unofficial nickname has been the ࢀœHysterical Society,ࢀ so this year the fundraising committee has decided to throw decorum to the winds and invite members, friends and people who donࢀ™t know us from Adam to relax for a couple of hours and enjoy a barrel of laughs accompanied by a sugar rush (jest desserts). WCHS has lined up some of Wayne Countyࢀ™s most dynamic performers, including comedians Roger Hunt, Jeff Hiller and Lars Hanson; Ramona Jan and her Marionettes, Bob Friedhoffer and his Scientific Magic and the Crackers! And who knows? There may be some surprises before the evening is out!

Price for the show and all-you-can-eat dessert buffet is $20 for Wayne County Historical Society members who order tickets in advance and $25 for non-members. All tickets at the door are $25. The Cooperage, Wayne Countyࢀ™s newest place to gather, is located at 1030 Main St., Honesdale.
