This past weekend the talented townspeople of Buffalo put on quite a show again to help raise funds to benefit the Susie Bowling Lawrence Hospice at the Johnson County Healthcare Center.
The variety show, which is put on every two years in Buffalo, features many talented people volunteering their performances that range from singing, dancing and comedy to the outright strange and different.
This year's performances were Friday and Saturday night at the BHS auditorium and played to full houses both nights.
BHS Music Instructor Chad Rose, accompanied by Julie Silbernagel on piano, gave a crowd-pleasing performance of “Stars” from Les Miserables.
Comedy skits, fun commentary from the three judges for the show: Steve Reimann, Rose Harriet and Dave Hall, and good-natured “ribbing” of some residents and each other from the Masters of Ceremony Jim Hicks and Dennis Kirven kept the crowd entertained.
Also performing was the Moldovan musical group La Taifas Quartet who gave a concert and dance after the show in the BHS Commons area.
The next Hospice Variety show will be performed in 2015.
