The Thomas More Prep-Marian Singers will have their dinner/dessert "Seasons 2024" shows this weekend.

The dinner show will be at 6 p.m. Saturday at TMP. The show will be in the Dreiling Theater. Tickets are $25. The meal will include fried chicken and mashed potatoes provided by JD's Chicken. The show begins at 7 p.m.

The dessert show will be at 2 p.m. Sunday also at TMP. Desserts from the Rose Garden Banquet Hall will be provided after the show in the cafeteria.

Tickets are available at the school, online at tmp-m.org or at the door on the days of the shows.

Katy Whalen, director of the TMP Singers, said the show will include large group numbers, solos and duets. The group consists of eight girls and eight boys freshmen through seniors who audition for spots in the group.

Audience members will enjoy hits from the 1970s through 2015, including Twenty One Pilots, Mamas & the Papas as well as music theater.

"If you like music and you like dancing and want a fun, energetic show, you should come out and see us," Whalen said.

The event this weekend is the largest fundraiser for the group during the year. Money raised through the event will be used for travel for the group, which plans a trip every two years. Next year's trip destination has yet to be set. Over the summer, the group went to Nashville.

Whalen is in her first year teaching at TMP. She just graduated from Fort Hays State University with her music performance degree. She is a 2018 TMP grad and was in the Singers when she was in school.

"I'm so proud to see how far they have come from their first rehearsal back in August," Whalen said.
