Visiting Frost Heaves




Fred Marple and the Frost Heaves Players join the Speed Bumps band to present their Best of NH-winning variety show filled with comedy, music and assorted Yankee nonsense from (the fictional) town of Frost Heaves.

Intrigued but want to know more?

Here's what we had to say about Marple and his fictional town back in 2009 when the Frost Heaves won a Best of NH Editor's Pick for "Granite State Variety Show:"

"'Frost Heaves' is a fictional town in New Hampshire. Think of it as our version of Lake Wobegon, Minnesota. Ken Sheldon of Hancock, the show's creator, becomes Fred Marple, the narrator of the town's adventures. Ken's wife, Christine Halverson, is the marketing agent. There is a cast and band, too. 'Frost Heaves' will soon return to the Peterborough Players Theatre and will still be priced right. 'We think cheapness is making a comeback,' says Marple."

From time to time Fred sends us dispatches from Frost Heaves. His latest contributions include August's "Last Laugh," which you can read by clicking here. In it Fred suggests that the current presidential hopefuls should include Frost Heaves on their campaign tours. This may not be the best advice.

Way back in March Fred chronicled what the annual town meeting is like in Frost Heaves. You can read what he has to say by clicking here.

If you want to read more of what Fred has written for us in the past he links to them (plus other Frost Heaves news items) on his website.
