In a little more than a week, a slate of Queens politicians will show another side of their personas when they step into a set of new roles — literally.

All singing, all dancing and all for a good cause, a couple dozens local pols have signed on to perform in the musical-comedy revue “Legislative Acts 2013” at Queens College on Saturday, Nov. 23, at 7 p.m.

Highlights of the show include Queens Borough President-elect Melinda Katz, U.S. Congresswoman Grace Meng, and City Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer and Ruben Wills, among others, performing parodies of movies, TV series and Broadway shows all with a uniquely Queens angle.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Big Buddy, which pairs homeless, at-risk children with college mentors; and Women and Work, which prepares victims of domestic violence, single mothers and downsized workers to secure new employment.

The evening includes a pre-show cocktail hour and a post-performance dessert reception. Tickets are $100 and are available by contacting Nayelii DiSpaltro at (718) 997-3589 or by e-mail at Nayelli.DiSpaltro@qc.cuny.edu.
