DrumLine Live Coming to SWOSU on October 18

DrumLine Live 

DrumLine Live, a theatrical production created by the music team behind the hit movie Drumline, will be staged Monday, October 18, at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.

Tickets are now on sale for the show that will feature a cast of 39 members from some of the most outstanding marching band programs across the southern United States. The show brings black marching band traditions to the theatrical stage. Starting time will be 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center.

"Area residents are in for a treat," said Brian Adler, chair of the sponsoring Panorama Committee. "The energetic cast is comprised of marching band members from historically-black colleges and universities across the United States. It will be a very entertaining show."

DrumLine Live is a synchronized musical showcase sponsored by Columbia Artists of New York City. Incorporating original compositions and soul-infused interpretations of Top 40 hits, group performances range from colorful, choreographed routines to heavy doses of drum riffs and cadences. Adler said the performance by DrumLine Live at SWOSU is the only show that will take place in Oklahoma.

Advance tickets are $10 for SWOSU students, faculty/staff and emeriti; $15 for others; and $20 for all tickets at the door.

Tickets are available at the SWOSU Public Relations & Marketing Office, Room 205 of the Administration Building; the SWOSU Business Office, Room 109 of the Administration Building; and Weatherford Daily News in downtown Weatherford.
