"A RIOTOUS ROMP THROUGH TODAY’S ADULT DATING WORLD. WITTY AND IRRESISTIBLE...ALWAYS HILARIOUS." -- RUTLAND HERALD
Award-winning Off Broadway songwriter and ebullient family innkeeper Melissa Levis performs her racy cabaret about dating 52 men in 52 weeks in her hopes to find a true love in New York City that she could import to Vermont.
Bring your friends or a hot date and enjoy these naughty songs of love in the age of Tinder. From a MILF seeking filmmaker to a lusty Vermont handyman and Latin ballroom dancer who swept her off her feet, Melissa and her band of bass, drums, and keyboard turned every adventure into a hot musical romp.
And who would have ever imagined the twist ending? Tinderella actually found true love (and a sexy Parisian beau) in the audience at last summer's cabaret! He won the give away Lady Liberty undies from Joy - and he's flying in from Paris to see the show on Saturday, August 24th.
Saturday, August 24th Late Night Show 9pm FREE
(Catch Candace Bushnell's interview about her 'Sex and the City' follow up "Is There Still Sex In the City" at Maple Street School at 6pm.)
Saturday, August 31st 8pm Show with the Full Band $20.
Tinderella is a guaranteed good time (which is certainly more than you can say for a blind date on Tinder!)
All welcome. Mature audiences only. Cocktails available.
Melissa has been a New York City songwriter for 25 years before trading her Green Acres life for the Green Mountains of Manchester Vermont. Before becoming Tinderella, Melissa was a beloved children’s performer in New York City. The New York Post dubbed her “The Pied Piper in Pink” for she mesmerised thousands of children each year at performances in Central Park, the Plaza Hotel and FAO Schwartz leading her band “Moey’s Music Party.”
While an undergraduate at Brown University, she started writing and performing Custom Songs for special events. She’s written songs for presidential hopefulls and cabinent members, movie stars, CEOS, tycoons, and many lovely people. She created the band “Melissa and the Moguls” in East Hampton NY where their theme song “Ooh La La Hamptons” tied the Macarena for most requested song of summer in 1994. She wrote the Off-Broadway musical, “The Joys of Sex” and “Moey Live, P is for Party!” After decades performing in cafes of Berlin, the Plaza Hotel in New York City, Off-Broadway and at the Rainbow Room, Melissa is delighted to return to her favorite stage of all: the living room of the Wilburton Inn. Read an article here. She is tickled to be the R-Rated Maria Von Trapp and singing Vermont family innkeeper.

Earth Sky Time sounds like the perfect name for an organic farm, but it was actually named in honor of the three first Greek Gods: Gaia Mother Earth, Uranus Father Sky, and their son Chronus (which means Time in ancient Greek. ) Patriarch, innkeeper, scholar, and Athenian, Dr. Albert Levis bought the Earth Sky Time estate in 1972 as the Levis Family. 2nd generation innkeeper, Oliver Levis met and Bonnie Levis at Cornell agriculture school and together with their 4 children and ever growing crew turned Earth Sky Time into the beloved organic farm and bakery it is today.
Earth Sky Time hosts Woodstock-like Sunday music festivals on their fields and in their barn all summer and fall. Click here for concert schedule.
