I think we can all agree that we need a do-over of 2020… We are excited to welcome back Will Moellering, Jason Grilo & Ken Pawluk and continue the “Hindsight’s
2020 2021 2022” show run!
The Beverly Heights Variety Show was started in 1971 as a fundraiser for the Beverly Heights Community League and has continued through the years – thanks to our wonderful volunteer cast, crew, committee and those volunteering each night to bring this incredible event to you – our supporters. We are working on the 2022 show, still celebrating 50 years of funny!
This year we’re excited to announce the details of our 50th show: Hindsight’s 2020 with writer/directors Will Moellering, Jason Grilo, and Ken Pawluk.
Unfortunately the show was cancelled part way through it’s nearly sold out 2020 run due to COVID-19.
How can I help?
