St. Joseph Variety Show this weekend

Song, dance and some comedy, too.

The annual St. Joseph High School Variety Show will be Friday and Saturday at the high school.

The annual event, a St. Joseph tradition for more than 30 years, is meant to showcase the talent of the student body. Nearly 60 students in grades 7-12 are involved in the production, either on stage or behind the scenes.

The theme this year is “It’s Going To Be A Good Night.” Teacher Maria Whaley said the talent runs the gamut of styles, from a Roaring 20s segment complete with The Charleston dance routine to a Three Stooges skit to an audience participation segment.

“We’re hoping a lot of people come out and enjoy the event,” Whaley said. “It’s light-hearted, it’s enjoyable. It celebrates the creativity and uniqueness of out students.”

Both the Friday and Saturday performances are at 8 p.m. The Saturday performance will follow a 6:30 p.m. dinner. The cost is $5 for the show. The dinner is $15 for adults and $10 for children.
