The group’s resident character, Rob Cuthrell, hosted the show and kept the crowd laughing with pre-perfornance chatter and with his new-found zeal to be “extra-extra nice and say nice things” about Linda Boyer and her banjo.
“I can’t stand any more of this,” laughed Boyer at one point after repeated over-the-top compliments from Cuthrell. The audience lapped it up.
As with all the shows BCTMA puts on, admission is free but donations are appreciated. Proceeds typically go to a local charity such as helping to finance a new roof for the theatre.
The NEXT edition of the variety show, hosted by Bobby Moore, comes up Thursday, June 20, also at the Turnage Theatre and starts at 7 pm and runs till 9 pm. For more information:
