MTV Show Stars Coming to SWOSU This Wednesday
October 6, 2011
The Buried Life is bringing its high-energy and interactive show to Southwestern Oklahoma State University this Wednesday, October 12, on the Weatherford campus.
The MTV show stars will appear at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center as part of the university’s Panorama series.
The Buried Life originated in 2006 when four now-twenty-something’s—Ben Nemtin, Dave Lingwood, Duncan Penn and Jonnie Penn—set out in an old RV to complete a list of “100 Things We Want To Do Before We Die” and help out strangers along the way accomplish something on their own lists. Their journey resulted in an MTV reality television show in 2008 and production on the third season started at the end of September and will air in early 2012. Their presentation at SWOSU will include a multi-media video presentation.
The Buried Life recently threw out the first pitch of a New York Yankees game against Tampa Bay and recently played basketball at the White House with President Barack Obama.
Advance tickets are $5 for SWOSU students and faculty/staff with a valid SWOSU I.D. and $10 for others. All tickets at the door will be $20. Advance tickets can be purchased with a credit card by calling (580) 774-3019 or in person at the SWOSU Public Relations & Marketing Office in Room 205 of the Administration Building, SWOSU Business Office, Room 109 of the Administration Building; or at the Weatherford Daily News.
