Opry starts this weekend in North Bend

COOS BAY, Ore. - The Opry kicks off in North Bend this weekend.

The Little Theatre on the Bay will kick off it's summer opry show this Saturday with a country flare.

The following weekend will feature a rock and roll theme, followed by a director's choice show in August.

"Opry has been going on for 32 years," said director Shirley Kintner. "It is the thing that keeps this theatre open ,and it just has a life of its own, it really does. People have been coming for years, it's been a family tradition and people who haven't seen it - I'm wondering why haven't you come yet because it is such a wonderful family show. I mean kids are up on stage, we have 2-year-olds up there, we have 80-year-olds singing. There's a lot of work but it's a lot of fun."
