Abbie Bender and Danielle Mulcahy are hosting a variety show called Locals on May 17 and 18 at the Grange Hall in West Tisbury.

Part of the Circuit Arts programming the duo has created a two night festival of live performances by local artist. The idea is for audiences to get a peak behind the curtain of the creative process as artists showcase works in progress in song, story, dance — all mediums are welcome.

Shows begin at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
