The Vaudevillians of Cherryville are inviting all to their inaugural fundraiser, art auction and dinner theatre production, Oct. 19 at the Cherryville Community Hall.

Vaudeville in Cherryville is a benefit organized by the Cherryville Drama Club to raise funds for the Cherryville Artisans Association and the Cherryville Farmers Market and all the special events both groups host to bring arts and culture to the rural community.

“Vaudeville in Cherryville will be a dazzling display of heterogeneous splendor, designed to educate, edify, amaze and uplift. Expect to be surprised and have fun,” reads a press release from The Cherryville Drama Club. “(It’s) a show for all, tall and small, a perfect family event. There will be live music and entertainment in vaudeville style.”

The Cherryville artisans have donated handmade artworks in glass, pottery, painting, photography, sculpture and more to be auctioned in the not-so-silent art auction extravaganza, while All Fired Up catering will offer a three-course meal with locally harvested and donated food to accompany the “vaudeville’ aspect of the entertainment.

The audience is encouraged to wear their best vaudeville attire for a chance to win prizes.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Dinner is at 6 p.m. with the show and auction to follow.
