The Spotlight Theater Players are taking people back in time.

The local acting troupe will present a music show starting at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27, at the Old South Jamboree in Walker.

Admission for “Through the Decades: A Musical Journey” is $10 per person, with tickets available at the door. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The Old South Jamboree is located at 9554 Florida Blvd. in Walker.

The featured band of the night will be Rosie and the Swingin’ Riveters, a 10-piece swing band from Denham Springs, along with members of The Spotlight Theater Players. All will perform music from the 1950s through the 1970s.

The event will also feature a silent auction with items from local artists and merchants as well as a 50/50 drawing. Proceeds from the show will go toward the Spotlight Theater Players’ spring production of “Steel Magnolias.”

The Spotlight Theater Players group was formed in March 2011 as a local community theater group, according to its website. The group performed several stage plays, including “Steel Magnolias,” “The Diary of Anne Frank” and “Aladdin” before it was contracted to perform an Abbott and Costello Radio Show for a WWII reenactment in the spring of 2013.

Since then, the group has focused on performing two stage plays each year as well as several radio shows.

The Spotlight Theater Players will later present “A Christmas Carol” during the Lighting of Old City Hall in the Denham Springs Antique Village on Friday, Nov. 23, starting at 7:30 p.m.
