(MITCHELL) - The first Hoosier Hometown Live, a radio variety show filled with down-home music, tall tales and a variety of other nonsense, was such a success a second one will hit the airwaves and be performed in front of a live audience at the historic Mitchell Opera House.

Gary Spear, who directed the first show and is community engagement facilitator for the Mitchell Community Public Library, has joined 1340 AM WBIW and Mitchell Opera House as partners in sponsoring "Hoosier Hometown Live.

The next show will be at 7 p.m. on May 13. Tickets will on on sale Monday, April 11. Tickets cost $7. Tickets can be purchased by visiting the Mitchell library, by calling the library at (812) 849-2412 or going online to and clicking the Event/Tickets link.

The event will air live on 1340 AM WBIW radio.

Hoosier Hometown Live is packed with old-time excitement and new-time creativity. Local musical talent inspires the audience to tap their toes and often sing along. Voice actors and sound effects performers spin tales of historical fiction including some downright lies to improve the plot. Engaging interviews showcase real life characters, and we mean characters, who talk about their roles in the hometown history of local communities.

Hosted by Gary Spear and Mark Bryant, you'll love all the cast of Hoosier Hometown Live. Larry Hollan at the piano accompanies the voice antics of Cassie Corp, Imogene Dedrick, and Tom Bostic as Matthew Canada, Steve Corp and Austin Malone provide sound effects and vocals. The Lick Creek Band brings a wide variety of musical selections as Tim Key joins them on banjo and the Breeding Sisters share their heartfelt, gospel songs. With stage management by Curt and Beth Parsley and tech support by Brian Sherwood, this second edition of Hoosier Hometown Live will charm you to laugh, to sing and maybe even to shed a sentimental tear, if that wouldn't embarrass you too much.
