The Bridgeport High School auto technology department is in need of updated diagnostic equipment.
But instead of the typical fundraisers, the group will bring an entourage of “high-energy, hilarious comedy and amazing musicians” directly from Eureka Springs, Ark., and Branson, Mo., to raise funds for the expense.
The Ozark Mountain Hoe-Down music theatre performs 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 11, at the middle school auditorium.
“It’s not a car wash; it’s not candy bars,” BHS auto tech teacher Terry Rye said. “It’s something a little different.”
The show features comical numbers; country (old and new), gospel and bluegrass singing; and crowd interaction.
“It’s a funny, down-to-earth show,” Rye said. “My wife and I keep season tickets for their show in Eureka Springs, and my grandson absolutely loves them, too. It’s fun for all ages.”
Tickets are $15, and 12-and-under are free. Pre-sale tickets can be purchased from a Bridgeport High School auto student or at the high school office. Tickets will also be sold at the door.
The auto class gets 20 percent of ticket sales to update its Snap-on Solus Pro diagnostic scanner.
