Variety show set

Your Community Variety Show is a monthly live program presented on the third Tuesday of every month from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Old Dungeness Schoolhouse. The Nov. 21 show features Eva Stanfield — the pen name of Cynthia Thompson Webster — who will read an excerpt from her recently produced audio book, “Little Red Riding Pants’ Narrow Escape.”

Webster was a lyric soprano and pianist who has performed in Great Britain and Europe as well as the United States. She was a soloist with the Detroit Concert Choir and a music professor before returning to the Olympic Peninsula.

But it is her writing that has led to her upcoming appearance in Sequim. As Eva Stanfield, Webster has written a memoir and several short stories about growing up here. Her story “Mrs. Peach’s Coin Collection” is included in the anthology “In The Words of Olympic Peninsula Authors” published earlier this year by Skookum Bay Publishing of Sequim.

For more about the show, email sbayprod@olypen.com or cynthia@redridingpantsproductions.com.
