NAUGATUCK — When the curtain drops on Kollege Kapers’ 56th musical variety show next week, it may signify the end of an era.

The show, titled “The Final Curtain? (It’s Up To You)” is scheduled for Saturday at 7 p.m. at Naugatuck High School.

The 56th installment of the annual variety show could be the group’s last full performance due to the tough economy, declining audiences, and aging members. Whether the show continues depends on the public’s response and support, according to a press release issued by the group.

The show was originally planned for last fall, but was postponed several times due to weather. The show, which was originally a holiday production, has been revamped. A few of the numbers from the postponed show will be sung, excluding Christmas and winter songs. Since this is expected to be the last full performance, the group will also highlight some of its best and favorite songs.

Tickets for the show are $10 and will be available at the door. Advance tickets are available at DeCarlo’s Thrifty Cleaners, Ed’s Hardware, Ford’s Pharmacy, Mountview Liquors, and Old Corner Café. Tickets from the postponed show will be honored. Proceeds from the show benefit the Kollege Kapers Music Scholarship Award.
