Revolution Kicks Off SWOSU Panorama Series
A high-energy dance/rock & roll show from Broadway in New York City will open the 2008-09 Panorama series at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.
Revolution will be staged Tuesday, October 7, at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center on the SWOSU campus.
Tickets are $10 for SWOSU students and $20 for non-SWOSU students if purchased in advance. All tickets at the door are $30. A group rate for 10 or more is available for $10.
Advance tickets are available at the SWOSU Public Relations & Marketing Office (Room 205) or SWOSU Business Office (Room 109), both in the Administration Building, or at the Weatherford Daily News office. Tickets can be ordered with a credit card by calling 580.774.3019.
Driven by the power of rock and the heartbeat of percussion, Revolution is a sweaty, sultry mix of live music and some of the world’s best Irish and tap dance. Revolution has been described as a cross between “Stomp” and a Rolling Stones concert. With its onstage rock band, cast of 10 dancers and live video, Revolution drags theatre kicking and screaming into the 21st Century.
Creators of the show are Mike Schulster and Joel Hanna (from Riverdance).
“People are excited about this year’s Panorama series, but this first event could be a dark horse pick for the best event of the year,” said Brian Adler, chairman of the Panorama Committee. “The show is from Broadway in New York City and features a young and energetic cast.”
Adler said two of the dancers are veterans of the “So You Think You Can Dance” television show. Plus, the music is fun, featuring songs by Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen, for example.
