Chambers Street Theatre

Join host Ruth Chambers as she shares stories from 1800 to 1920 in the dialogue and dialects of the time as written by the authors. You'll hear Gold Rush and Wild West Stories, Tall Tales, and plenty of Mark Twain. Some of the stories were written by the reader herself! Tune in, sit back, and enjoy a taste of simpler times.

Music programs are only online for two weeks after they are broadcast.

Chambers Street Theatre Apr 19th, 2012

The 13th show.  For those who like a little darkness with their humor, Ruth reads from her extended second edition of her book.  "There are Lies and There are Lies" is a friendly story of a family buried in snow with a deer.  All the group are later reburied together in a cemetery.  "The Mortician and the Widow Wick" is a romantic story of two not so pleasing people who fall in "love" by their own rules.

Thanks to all the folk I meet in town who recognize my voice and say how much they like my show. I like every one of you and we always have a nice chat about Mark Twain. You all are the best of people.

Here's our offering for your collection.  It's an ode to our kitty Katie ...


A wonderfully warm Katie Cat

would come running whenever you sat.

She'd rumble and purr,

and had wonderful fur 

to cuddle and nuzzle and pat.
