A host of Broadway favorites will take part in Pittsburgh CLO's tribute to Oscar-winning stage and screen star Shirley Jones September 21 at 4 PM at the Byham Theater.

Directed by Patrick Cassidy with musical direction by Kimberly Grigsby, the evening celebrating the Smithton, Pennsylvania, native will feature Tony winner Kelli O'Hara (The King and I), Sierra Boggess (The Little Mermaid), Tony winner Jessie Mueller (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical), Adam Pascal (Rent), and Norm Lewis (The Phantom of the Opera).

Patrick Cassidy, Shaun Cassidy, and Ryan Cassidy, who will host the gala event, said in a joint statement, "As our mother turned 90 this year, we are thrilled that her hometown of Pittsburgh, and the Pittsburgh CLO, are honoring her with what will be a rich and emotional evening. We are looking forward to sharing personal stories of life with mom while these extraordinary performers lift the audience to their feet with the songs that made her famous. Bring your Kleenex."

Jones appeared in the Broadway productions of South Pacific, Maggie Flynn, and 42nd Street, but is best known for her work on the small and silver screens. She was the matriarch of The Partridge Family and also starred in the film adaptations of Oklahoma!, Carousel, and The Music Man.

The celebration, honoring Jones' deep roots in the Pittsburgh community, will benefit Pittsburgh CLO’s Education and Arts programs.
