Jan Kopp, Liz and Joan Larsen, Ed Stamper, Darryl Stines and Richard Joplin perform early 1960s hits by acts such as The Shirelles, The Lettermen, The Beatles and Elvis Presley.

Showtimes are 8:15 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays through Dec. 18. Two other shows will be Sunday, Dec. 5, at 2 p.m. and Thursday, Dec. 9, at 7:15 p.m.

“Thousands of Fingers – A Tribute to Steely Dan,” a Center for the Arts benefit on Oct. 23, will feature 25 songs from the far-reaching rock group that formed in the 1970s.
