First Presbyterian Church of Hokendauqua, 3005 S. Front St., will host a talent(less) show 7 p.m. March 7, including comedy, skits, musical numbers and other assorted acts. The fellowship hall will be transformed into an artsy coffee house, and ticket holders can enjoy a coffee/tea bar and desserts during the show.

“We came up with the idea of a talent show, but the more we talked about it, the more people said they’d perform except they don’t think they have any talent,” Rev. Christine Kass said. “We renamed it a talent(less) show and turned it into a fun, hilarious evening of performances.”

Members of Presbyterian Church of Catasauqua will also be participating.

Tickets are cheaper when purchased in advance.

For cost, more information and tickets, call 610-264-9693 or email hokeypres@gmail.com.
