Actor, comedian and musician Rusty DeWees, aka “The Logger,” is on a Tiny Town Hall tour, bringing his unique brand of one-man blue-collar comedy to small stages around Vermont.
“Vermont communities work hard to preserve and restore town halls and granges, and I’ll be blessed to play a good number of them the next few years,” DeWees said.
“Old halls, like old guitars are more fun to play, and sound better than when new. As I go forward in life, I’ll enjoy going backward in time regarding showman style and substance.”
The tour comes to the Grange Hall Cultural Center in Waterbury Center on Friday, Oct. 11 and Saturday, Oct. 12, 7:30 p.m. each night.
On Friday, Oct. 25, the show goes on at 7:30 p.m. the Moretown Town Hall.
Tickets are $22, general admission, with limited seating. Audience members who show up on a farm or lawn tractor will receive an additional free ticket (one person per tractor; reserve in advance).
“I’ll perform an all-new set of comedy and a strong poignant piece that Vermont farmers will especially understand,” DeWees said. “I’ll throw in a classic Logger piece or two, sing, play guitar, and of course there’ll be crowd work, so don’t come late … or sneeze if you don’t want to be in the show.”
