The White River Valley Players present

The Peavine Local

A 3-episode series of audio shows

  • Episode 2 launches Sunday, April 25, 2021, at 4 pm

Link to listen:  https://vimeo.com/wrvp

All aboard for the second journey of the Peavine Local, an auditory “train ride” of entertainment coming to you this Sunday, April 25, any time after 4 pm ET through the Vimeo link above.

On the ride, hosted by “conductor” Don Crickard, you’ll hear about the history of the Peavine Railroad, listen to train-themed music by local performers Rob Gardner and Susie Smolen, find out about dangerous animals, overhear two local dogs secretly discuss national politics, enjoy local poet Danny Dover reading his original poem, get advice from “Miss Timmons,” and hear a waltz you might have heard at an old-time dance hall, way back when. You might even hear a joke from some of the younger traveler. The episode also features a story of travel and adventure excerpted from West with the Night by Beryl Markham.

Additional performers include Janine Reeves, Todd Eberhardt, Marlys Eddy, Jen Edmonds, MaryBeth Deller, Erica B. Robinson, and Martha Slater. The episode is produced by Jeremy Seeger, directed by Erica B. Robinson, and recorded and mixed by Jake Wildwood, with musical underscoring by Jake Wildwood and Todd Eberhardt.

Episode 3 will be available beginning on Sunday, May 2, 2021, at 4 pm ET. All episodes will continue to be available after their initial launch dates. The links to listen in will be posted on WhiteRiverValleyPlayers.org.  Each episode is about 40 minutes in length.

We are a community theater group, run by volunteers.

Over the years we’ve done a huge range of shows, everything from Broadway musicals to Brecht. We’ve done full-length plays and evenings of original one-acts and produced events that focus on community building and performance such as our annual Harvest Fair (a fall fair on our town green, with a full day of live entertainment, arts and crafts, food, a flower show, children’s activities, and a lot more) which has been a tradition on the first weekend after Labor Day since 1987.

One of our goals is to share our love of theater

We invite you to see one of our shows, attend one of our events, or join us on-stage or off to experience the magic of community theater.
