The Bear River Men’s Chorus will present doo-wop and barbershop favorites in its first production of the year Saturday.

The second annual “Family-Style Cabaret” features the chorus and their families and other members of the Bear River Choral Department performing everything from father-daughter duets to skits.

“It’s really nice to start off the year, because it encourages family participation. It has also become really popular with the community,” said Bear River choral director Cherry Hayes.

Decoration in the school’s multipurpose room will make the night special, added Hayes.

“We’re having the red-checkered tablecloths and everything. (The decorations) really add to the cabaret atmosphere and make it fun,” Hayes said.

The number of acts has increased to 14 this year.

Among songs to be performed are “Coney Island Baby,” “Sittin’ on Top of the World,” “Ghost Riders in the Sky,” “The Book of Love” and “Goodnight, Sweetheart.”

“It’s a really fun because the kids get to pick their own acts, and it’s all family-oriented,” Hayes said.
