Hawthorne Players of Florissant will present its Best of Hawthorne: Cowboy Christmas show at the Florissant Civic Center Theatre, located at Parker Rd. and Waterford Dr., for two shows only on Saturday, Dec. 16. Performances will be at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. and will benefit the Duckie DeMere Scholarship Program. Tickets are $15. Call the box office at 314-921-5678 or go to www.HawthornePlayers.com.

The team behind Cowboy Swing from two years ago returns to spread holiday merriment in the style of the golden era of the singin’ cowboy. Featuring Hawthorne’s own Jameson Quartet and The Jeweltones, this show is for all ages and includes sing-a-longs and corn pone comedy.

Director Joe Paule, Sr., came up with the idea. “I grew up with cowboy music and have a love for the cowboy band ‘Riders in the Sky.’ As an audience member, I wanted to see a group like that on stage performing some of my favorite songs from my past,” he said.

Hawthorne has presented over $56,000 in scholarships since 1992 to high school seniors active in the performing arts
