This is big. Of course, everything is big in The Villages, especially the publicity machine.

Tickets are on sale for a musical show being billed, without hyperbole, as “one of the greatest entertainment spectaculars ever staged in The Villages,” with a lineup of performers on “one stage for one show on one night.”

The community’s annual Dollars for Scholars benefit, this year titled “Starry Rocks,” is scheduled for 7pm Friday, Nov. 2, at Savannah Center, 1545 Buena Vista Blvd. The show raises money for scholarships for high school students in need of financial assistance.

The lineup includes Hayfire, a high-energy country band from Central Florida; Johnny Wild & the Delights, a musical time machine of pop and rock tunes; and Petrina, the popular Villages entertainer and musical impersonator. The emcee for the show is J.R. “Jim” Zurak.

Tickets cost $26 for Villages residents and $31 for the general public, and are available at all Villages box offices and at
