Developed and scripted by The Burys own Kent Bernhardt, the show will feature a host of familiar faces performing as the Bury Home Companion Radio Players and Singers who will bring life to live radio ads and comedy sketches with characters like Guy Noir, who has now taken up residence in Salisbury in his search for truth. Theres WBTVs David Whisenant as The Burys official announcer, and even a Sound Effects Guy, who will add seasoning to our live radio presentation. A Bury Home Companion will also spotlight musical talent from the region, from bluegrass to - believe it or not - opera. The Bury has it all. One night only. Limited tickets available. All money raised goes directly to the Salisbury Symphony to help the organization bring quality music and music education programs to Salisbury and the entire region.
