GREENCASTLE, Pa. - The Greencastle Rescue Hose Fire Company will present its 72nd Annual Minstrel Show "A Hallelujah Minstrel" this weekend.
Started in 1929 the minstrel show has become a tradition for Greencastle.
"I am pretty sure we are the oldest running minstrel show in the country," Russ Clever said.
Clever said the show is a mixture of music and comedy performed by a chorus of about 70 singers, 8 "end men" who will be dressed as hobos, and a small "orchestra."
The minstrels will perform this Thursday through Sunday at the Greencastle-Antrim Senior High School under the direction of "interlocutor" Greg Hoover.
"It will be different and clean entertainment," Clever said.
The Greencastle Rotary Club will serve a spaghetti dinner before the show to benefit their local youth projects.
