Wilmore Opry News

The Wilmore Opry was created to bring fun into the lives of anyone who is craving an entertaining evening without it costing a small fortune. It started out with a free will donation and the performers showed off their talents in a carefree environment. It is an evening of good music and comedy.There is something for everyone.

Fall Variety Show

Wilmore Opry News by Vanita Blundell
Yes, it is that time again- Saturday, October 4th we will have our Wilmore Opry Fall Variety Show. There will be an array of music. There should be something there for everyone. We have some wonderful guests to entertain you. The ‘legendary’ Jack Ewing will replace Vanita Blundell this time as your emcee. Jack is multi-talented, not only is he a wonderful emcee, and he has a fantastic singing voice.
We have three new faces that will appear on the Opry this time. Julie Wendell is coming all the way from Beloit, Kansas to show you what she can do. John Clark of Medicine Lodge will bring his talents. We are happy to have little Emily Rugg. I have been told this youngster will certainly be a delight to every one. We always welcome new musicians and we are on the lookout for more.
We are excited to have the return of Casey Fetters of the Newkirk, Oklahoma area and Verlan Elliott of the Pratt, Kansas area to the Opry. We have not gotten to hear them since the Wilmore Opry moved from Wilmore. Casey brought the house down there and she will do the same in Medicine Lodge. Verlan Elliott will be on hand to add his own flavor of singing. He is a busy man and we were lucky to get on his calendar.
We have caught up with the very busy Jennifer Johnson of Wichita- she has her own style of music and you will not want her to stop.
Last but certainly not least, Daryl Schiff and Gene Winter will be there to sing. It seems that whatever they sing it becomes a favorite.
Do not forget that the Heritage Center members will provide you with a hunger stopping-thirst quenching concessions. We appreciate their efforts, support and their vittles.
We hope that you mark your calendar for Saturday, 4th of October- Showtime is at 6:00 the doors will open at 5:00. Admission is at the door of $10.00 for adults--children ages 10 and under is free. We look forward to seeing you there.

Gospel Show

We are delighted to present another Wilmore Opry Gospel Show. This might very well be our very best- There will be wonderful singing to uplift your spirits. We will get your toes to tapping and your hands to clapping. Along with Daryl Schiff and Gene Winters we have a remarkable cast such as Eddie Freeman of Pratt, Garry Houston of Nashville Kansas, Leslie Wedel, the Morford Sisters, from the Medicine Lodge area, Mike Dooley and his Daughters, from the Wichita area, Rick Schiff is bringing a fellow performer from the Winfield area, and Wendy Monroe from Greensburg. We have others that will be there as well. The performers are some of the best and you will not want the show to stop. This is a performance you will not want to miss. So come on down to Medicine Lodge and remember that we have soft comfortable seating and a relaxing atmosphere. Come hungry and thirsty, we will fill your stomach with tasty morsels and we will rejuvenate your soul with good gospel music.
