The Bucktown Revue returns to the Nighswander Junior Theatre 7 tonight, Friday, Nov. 15, with a festive Thanksgiving show.

The November show features another installment of the Pleasant Valley Hillbillies. Also, the Pleasant Valley Ladies Guild will make an encouraging and helpful presentation on Thanksgiving dinner dos and don'ts.

Guests include The Ripplers, a favorite folk band at Bucktown; Paul Holzworth with some Yogi Yorgesson songs; the Possible Side Effects quartet; and the "poetry" of Dick Sabbe. Also making a special appearance will be Lady Klutho and the Bucktown Chamber Orchestra.

Also on the playbill are the usual suspects, including the Barley House Band (celtic music), Milltown (bluegrass), pianist Jonathan Turner, singer Korah Winn, Wenonah Allen, Bill "Baxter" Klutho and Linda "Granny" Shoesmith. Scott Tunnicliff is the master of ceremonies.

The Bucktown Revue is an old-fashioned radio variety program, performed live in front of an audience and recorded for webcast. In the tradition of such radio programs as "A Prairie Home Companion" and "The Grand Ole Opry," the family-friendly Bucktown Revue celebrates Mississippi River Valley folk music and culture through a combination of music, storytelling, poetry and humor.
