Jimmy Durante will return to Auburn Public Theater when Grover Kemble depicts the vaudevillian entertainer there this weekend.
"Durante!" finds Kemble joined by bassist Tim Metz and pianist Regan Ryzuk for a collection of jokes, songs and signature Durante moments. They've been performing the show for the past few years, and brought it to the downtown Auburn theater in June 2017.

"They could do it all. They were masters of all forms of entertainment, the really good ones were," Kemble said of Durante and his peers during an interview with The Citizen last year. "I think that's something that's been lost a little over the years."
Performance times are 2 p.m. Thursday and Friday, July 12 and 13, and 8 p.m. Saturday, July 14, at the theater, 8 Exchange St., Auburn.
Tickets are $29 in advance, $32 at the door and $10 student rush.
