Names can be deceiving.

The Montana Logging and Ballet Company will appear Thursday at Centennial High in a benefit for the Howard County Sexual Assault Center.

Little dancing and even less wood are found in their performance.They are, however, from Montana.

The group is composed of four musician-satirists from western Montana. Bob Fitzgerald, Tim Holmes, Steve Garnaas-Holmes and Rusty Harper are a Methodist minister, a civilservant, a promoter and a sculptor.

They say their mission is to bring a message of hope through song, satire and slapstick comedy.

The company has performed before South African Bishop Desmond Tutu in Helena, Montana, and before the House Democrats.

The day after the benefit performance they will appear at the National Press Club inWashington.

The Sexual Assault Center is a non-profit agency thatprovides services to victims of rape, sexual assault and child sexual abuse.

The concert will begin at 7:30 at the high school.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $7.50 for children under 12.

Before the concert, an exhibit of Tim Holmes's metal sculptures will be shown in the high school cafeteria from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m.

Information: 964-0504 or 992-0035.
