Music, humor, at Monadnock Center

“Round the Mountain,” a summer show with Ken Sheldon, will be presented at the Monadnock Center for History and Culture in three programs, the first being Saturday, June 14, at 7:30 p.m.

Sheldon is known to many as Fred Marple of the town of Frost Heaves, “the most under-appreciated town in New Hampshire,” and Marple may make an appearance during the show.

This Saturday’s performance will feature musical guest Sharon Panish, a classically-trained singer, studio artist, and performer who transitioned into pop music. She has appeared for many years in the Los Angeles area and now spends her time bi-coastally as a resident of Hancock and southern California.

She will be accompanied by pianist and longtime ConVal High School choral director Ray Sweeney for her first Monadnock region performance.

The show also will include a special guest appearance from local author Howard Mansfield.

Sheldon will pull something “From the Attic” to highlight the fascinating items in the Monadnock Center’s historical collections, and the police log will be opened with actual items from the police report about some of the goings-on in the area.

Other programs are scheduled for July 5 and Aug. 2.

Admission is $15 and $12 for members, seniors and students.

Reservations may be made online at, by calling 924-3235, or at the Monadnock Center Wednesday through Saturday, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
