Cassville celebrating 29 years of The Show

For 29 years, Greg Beck and a number of local talented vocalists have joined together to put on The Show each fall.

This year, The Show consists of 35 performers and 24 songs, all of which will last about an hour and a half, including intermission. The Show will be held at the middle school FEMA building on Thursday and Saturday 7:30 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m.

“It is ‘American Classics — past, present and future,’” Beck said. “We are focusing on classic artists.”

The performers make up a wide variety of talent, ages and genres.

“We always have children in The Show, usually high schoolers,” Beck said. “This year, we have highs schoolers and a younger choir that will perform.”

There will be a variety of American Classics performed from pop to country and swing.

“This is the 29th year for The Show, but because we canceled last years performance, this is the 28th show for us,” he said. “When we first started, I told the chamber we would do 35 shows.”

Beck said every year, he and the rest of the performers have fun.

“It is fun to work with good musicians, and this area is loaded with vocalists,” he said. “The main thing I like to do is get people out of their comfort zones.”

The band, HomeTown Sound & the RedHots, also adds so much to The Show.

“They are a really good band and very talented,” he said. “The band is made up of smart musicians an they do a good job.

“I would just like to invite everyone to come out and join us for The Show. It is fun for all ages, and everyone can find something they like.”

Tickets are available for pre-order for $8, or are $10 at the door. Tables are also available and people can book a table through the Cassville Chamber of Commerce.
