Take Me Home, Country Road: Pin-Ups in West Virgina!
Updated: Sep 6, 2020
Our gals are back home after a great weekend in West Virginia’s Mountaineer Country.
Pin-Ups on Tour was proud to partner with Operation Welcome Home, a nonprofit organization based the area. Operation Welcome Home is a 501c3 non-profit job placement organization dedicated to helping veterans and their families overcome barriers to employment and providing them with the knowledge and resources needed to secure a fulfilling position in the civilian workforce.

While in town, the gals were able to perform in the BEAUTIFUL Metropolitan Theater. This historic venue was billed as “West Virginia’s most beautiful playhouse”. Opening night featured “Seven Acts of Vaudeville”, and for the next seven decades it remained the focus of Morgantown’s cultural life and enormously enriched the community. A long impressive playbill testifies to the vast number of artists and actors who have appeared on the stage such as Vaudeville; the traveling road shows of Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Helen Hayes, and many others.

Our gals felt right at home on this vintage vaudeville stage.
Before the show - we had the honor of performing for 125 of our American Heroes at the West Virgina Veterans Home in Clarksburg, WV - a HUGE thank you to all our audience members who donated gifts to help make these veterans smile. We can’t do it without you!

Thank you West Virgina for a lovely time - we can’t wait to come back!
