Lighthouse Repertory Theatre will celebrate its 40th anniversary with a special tribute Saturday to local veterans.

LRT will host a “USO Tour” featuring music from its past productions at the Veterans Memorial Hall. The evening will begin with cocktails, beer and wine and will include an “all-American dinner” and dessert. Jazz pianist Beverly Ritz will provide live music during this portion of the evening.

An “LRT USO Variety Show” will begin at 7 p.m. followed by a silent and live auction. All proceeds benefit LRT’s future productions with a portion of the proceeds to be shared with local veterans.

The cocktail hour begins at 5 p.m. and dinner starts at 6 p.m. The event will be held at the Veterans Memorial Hall, 810 H St., Crescent City.

Tickets are $30 for veterans and $35 for non-veterans and are available at Del Norte Office Supply. People can also thank a veteran by purchasing a courtesy ticket in advance of the event.
