The performers from the church already have two shows under their belt featuring songs from the 1950s and 1960s as well as skits. And this year's show, is brand new, organizers said.
The musical show this year, dubbed Juke Box Memories III, will feature the classic country songs that were made famous by artists like Dolly Parton, Reba McEntyre, Garth Brooks, Hank Williams Sr., Sons of the Pioneers, LeAnn Rimes and Tammy Wynette.
Organizers added that there will also be skits during the show as in previous years. And Juke Box Memories III will feature the church's own "Hee-Haw Girls."
The show will be performed at Kingsford High School auditorium during two weekends - Oct. 5-7 and Oct. 19-21. All shows on Fridays and Saturdays are at 7 p.m. and the Sunday shows start at 2 p.m.
This is the third musical show that the church has performed for audiences during the past three years under the name Juke Box Memories. Many of the shows during the previous two years have sold out with some people attending it more than once.
"The response to our first two show was so positive, we thought we'd put another one together," said Fr. Mike Woempner, pastor of St. Mary Queen of Peace Church who also serves as the director of the show.
Ticket prices for Juke Box Memories III are $10 for adults and $7 for children, age 12 and younger. Tickets can be purchased at the door or in advance by calling St. Mary Queen of Peace Catholic Church at 774-6122.
"This is great entertainment for the entire family, so we hope people will come and see this new variety show," a spokesperson added.
