Queensborough Community College’s performing arts center’s will host performances by an Emmy and Tony-nominated actress and a former teen idol this month.

Michele Lee and the Broadway Boys will play the arts center, located at 222-05 56th Ave. in Bayside, at 3 p.m. on Oct. 13, while James Darren and Sal Richards will team up for a show at 8 p.m. on Oct. 19.

Lee, who starred as Karen Fairgate MacKenzie on CBS’ “Knots Landing,” will perform Broadway hits from “Wicked,” “Jersey Boys” and “The Book of Mormon” during her show.

Darren, a former teen idol who was featured in TV shows “T.J. Hooker” and “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” will play big band and swing tunes, while Sal Richards will perform a comedy routine.

“I was born in Queens, so coming back to the old neighborhood is going to be a real treat for me,” Richards said.

Tickets for both shows cost $40.

“Every time you come to QPAC, you’re seeing something you can’t see any place else,” said Susan Agin, executive director for the arts center.

Tickets are available at the center’s box office or online at QPAC’s website.
