Walnut: Music Legends To Be Featured In Scholarship Fundraiser at Mt. San Antonio College


Walnut – For the 16th year, Mt. San Antonio College will have the only stage in the world where you can see stars such as Lady Gaga, U2, Johnny Cash, David Bowie, and Queen together in one show as the Mt. SAC Faculty Association sponsors its annual scholarship fundraiser, “Puttin’ on the Hits.” Show times are Friday, March 7, at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, March 8, at 3 and 7:30 p.m., in the Clarke Theater.

Mt. SAC employees, students, and trustees, donning authentic costumes, will impersonate famous celebrities and lip sync their hit tunes. The program showcases several styles of music, including country, swing, R&B, hip-hop, and rock ‘n’ roll. This year’s show will pay special tribute to Mt. SAC professors Joe Franko and Phillip Maynard, who performed in the Hits for many years and who both passed away recently.

Last year, the Faculty Association raised over $12,000 for student scholarships, and over the past 15 years, “Puttin’ on the Hits” has raised more than $135,000.

Tickets are $25 and up for general admission at the evening performances and $15 at the Saturday matinee performance.
