AN EVENING BERNIE & LOUISE Set for River Street Theatre 6/21
Jaffrey and the Monadnock Region can boast two entertainers that have a local and global following: Bernie & Louise Watson. The talented husband and wife duo will perform in their hometown of Jaffrey on Wednesday, June 21 at the River Street Theatre (RST), a project of The Park Theatre. There will be one performance at 7:30pm.
Regular performers at Jaffrey's Monadnock Inn, Bernie hails from England and Louise has Jaffrey roots. They both performed on Cunard Line ships as entertainers. Their music brought them together. One newspaper called their partnership as "A melodious love story for the ages." Their performing repertoire spans 100 years of popular songs and music. The RST performance will include music, songs, stories, conversation and lots of love.
Tickets for "An Evening with Bernie & Louise" are $10 and can be purchased by calling the RST box office at (603) 532-8888 or by visiting online at www.riverst.org. Due to the limited size of the RST, advance ticket purchase is highly recommended.
