In their first effort to sponsor a new, varied, and interesting evening of food and entertainment, Sun Lakes Community Theatre has drawn talent from the area, and the shows are shaping up to be a night not to be missed. Variety Show director Nancy Patterson is thrilled with the talented folks who responded to the call for acts. The show has instrumental musical offerings, singing, dancing, magic, comedy, poetry, and, of course, the one-act play that director Kate King-Turner is excited to have cast with Lew Crawford, Cari Scholes, and Kathy Miller.

The $25 tickets for the Jan. 16 and 17 shows (same show each night) go on sale Jan. 3 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased online either at or by going to There are only 100 seats available each night, with no reserved seats—simply open seating at tables for four.
