UPPER SANDUSKY — Barbershop harmony will return to the Star Theatre in Upper Sandsuky at 7 p.m. Saturday as the community theater holds its 4th Annual Evening of Barbershop.

They excelled in a competition that was made for them and took home gold medals and a first place trophy in the 2001 Buckeye Invitational Comedy Quartet Competition in Columbus. They have continued in the competition realm and are the 2005 Johnny Appleseed District champions.
The Buffoons have also competed internationally and have been ranked in the top 50 quartets in the world for 8 years running. Two of those years being ranked as high as 16th. Despite their successes in the competition venue, this quartets true love is to entertain.
