February StoryTown Radio Show & Gala

February 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

StoryTown Radio Show Returns for a New Season with a Gala Performance
The award-winning StoryTown Radio Show will begin a new season of its popular one-hour live production at the McKinney Center with a special Gala performance on February 26th at 7PM.
StoryTown is reminiscent of old-time radio shows popular in the 1930s-1950s, filled with actors performing local stories, and complete with live sound effects created on the spot. Each show also features one of the top music acts in the region. The Radio Show has lots of surprises planned for its 13th season. What are they? Get a ticket to the show and come and find out.
The special opening Gala performance is titled “Love Leads the Way” and will include romantic stories about how couples met as well as stories about leadership in Jonesborough and how that leadership was on display at the Booker T. Washington School. Drawn from true stories collected throughout Jonesborough and the Tri-Cities region, the skits range from heartwarming to outright funny. This month’s musical performance will feature a special reunion of the cast from the play CROWNS by Regina Taylor which was performed at the McKinney Center in 2023. The reunited cast will lend their soaring voices to beautiful gospel music accompanied by Brett McCluskey.
A gala will be held immediately following the performance, featuring various desserts and small bites from local stores and restaurants. Audience members will have an opportunity to mingle and talk with the cast, musicians, writers, and directors.
Tickets for the opening performance are $10 and available online at Jonesborough.com/tickets or by calling the Historic Visitors Center at 423-753-1010.
StoryTown is sponsored by the Tennessee Arts Commission, Trivia with Budds, The Wild Women of Jonesborough, and Gary and Sandee Degner, and is part of Jonesborough’s Mary B. Martin Program for the Arts at the McKinney Center.
