Fred Marple show to benefit River Center, Peterborough, April 13
Fred Marple brings his one-man show of Yankee humor, music and assorted nonsense to Conval High School on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in a special benefit performance for the River Center.
Marple is the unofficial spokesman for the mythical town of Frost Heaves, and he’s on a one-man campaign to put Frost Heaves back on the map. “It’s a one-man crusade because everyone else has real jobs,” says Marple.
Marple is also known as humorist and songwriter Ken Sheldon of Hancock.
As part of the evening’s entertainment, Marple will introduce the local businesses in Frost Heaves, including the Frost Heaves House of Pizza and the Bait and Beauty Salon.
Marple will bring the latest news from Frost Heaves, and you’ll also meet some of the town’s notable citizens, including Sophie Hamilton, 94-year-old organist at the Frost Heaves Community Church, Homer and Elmer Cratchet (two brothers who are a few crackers shy of a box) and Edith “Telegraph” Wyer, town clerk, among others.
Tickets are available at the Toadstool Bookshop, Steele’s and The River Center, at the door, and online at www.rivercenter.us. For more information, call 924-6800.
