The Baylor Religious Hour Choir will be hold its largest fundraiser of the year March 23-25 in Barfield Drawing Room. The annual dinner theater will take place at 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday and at 7 p.m. on Saturday. The theme for the event is "A Night in the Outback," with proceeds benefiting the choir's upcoming mission trip to Australia in May. A silent auction, sponsored by local businesses, will accompany the shows.

The show will consist of a variety of musical and skit acts. The musical acts range from show tunes to popular current songs to numbers with a spiritual theme. Many of the acts are accompanied by BRH's band, made up of students.

Laura Terrell, Houston senior and this year's dinner theater chair, said that her goal for the show is "to make an entertaining, exciting show completely produced by the students that will successfully raise money for our mission trip."

John Ertekin, Richardson junior and BRH president, is excited about the opportunities that this event presents. "To be able to tie these performances with a biblical mission is phenomenal," Ertekin explained.

The BRH Choir has been a Baylor organization since 1948 and serves primarily as a ministry to Baylor's campus and churches in Texas. The choir also travels throughout the nation and the world for the annual mission trips. Previous years' mission trips have included destinations such as Taiwan, Mexico, Paris and Canada. Last year's mission trip took place in New York City.

Dessert will be served on Thursday and Friday, and the ticket prices are $7 for students, $10 for adults and $20 for reserved seats. A chicken dinner also will be included on Saturday and the tickets cost $10 for students, $15 for adults and $25 for reserved seats.

Tickets are still available to be purchased. For more information contact Laura Terrell at Laura_Terrell@baylor.edu
