Vaudeville Night in Sedalia next week!
« on: July 14, 2019, 07:56:21 PM »
Mark Twain wrote "Taming the Bicycle" show after he tried to learn to ride a high wheel bike with lessons-it did not go well but his account is a classic. Twain’s advice: “LEARN TO RIDE A BIKE. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT. IF YOU LIVE.....” The July 26th Friday night event is in Sedalia Missouri at the Smith Cotton High School Heckart Auditorium at 6 pm. It is “THE WHEELMEN OF VAUDEVILLE” which denotes a “variety show” with 1890s fashion show with period bicycles from the 1820s to the 1930s, music from the 1890s with a world class pianist (Dave Majchrzak), technical timeline of the bicycle evolution, Olympian John Howard setting the world speed record on a bicycle and talking about the upcoming movie on Marshall Major Taylor (the first black World Champion) and of course MARK TWAIN HIMSELF. The event is free and open to the public.
