Big Top Chautauqua - April 9th

A full and fun evening is in store this Saturday (April 9) as the 8th annual Big Top Chautauqua community building fundraising partnership event takes place at the Richland Center High School.

This year's theme is different from past years. For those who enjoy country music, this year's show, Big Top Opry, will be for you. Sherry Klatt is the chair of the fundraising committee for NHS of Southwest Wisconsin.

A pre-event will be held before the show in the Richland Center High School West Commons. A meal will be available by the Richland Center High School volleyball team and Key Club will hold a bake sale both before the show and at intermission.

Big Top Opry will be held this Saturday (April 9) at 7:30 PM at the Richland Center High School Auditorium. Tickets are $15 in advance, $17 at the door if available. Big Top Chautauqua has become very popular in Richland Center and has performed to near sell out crowds.

Advance tickets are available at: Gordy’s Market, the Shopping News, and Walsh's Hardware all in Richland Center; or the Viroqua Food Coop. Net proceeds from the event will go to Neighborhood Housing Services of Southwest Wisconsin, the Richland County Veterans Honor Roll, the Richland School District Foundation, and Greater Richland Area Cancer Elimination.
