“For the mere sake of adventure, danger, and ‘fun,’ two undergraduates murder a fellow, innocent, and harmless, friend.

Seussical, Jr. 

Date: February 16th-19th  

Time: Thurs-Sat 7:30PM, Sun 3:30PM 

Location: The Commons Theatre – Alexandria, IN 

“Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty. 

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that’s been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!”

Date: February 17th-19th, 24th-25th  

Location: Byrum Hall, Anderson University – Anderson, IN 

“This highly successful musical was first produced on Broadway in 1971 and revised in 2012. Based on the Gospel According to St. Matthew, it follows the last days of Jesus and includes dramatized versions of several well-known parables. It offers the audience more than a story. It is an affirmation of faith, a demonstration of joy, and a celebration of our common humanity, including unforgettable songs such as ‘Day by Day,’ ‘All Good Gifts,’ and ‘Light of the World.’” 


Buddy Guy: Damn Right Farewell Tour

Career highlights include 8 Grammy Awards, 38 Blues Music Awards (the most any artist has had) a Kennedy Center Honors, NARM Chairman’s Award for Sustained Creative Achievement, Billboard Music Awards’ Century Award for distinguished artistic development, Presidential National Medal of Arts, and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, to name a few. At 86 years young, Buddy Guy remains a genuine American treasure and one of the final surviving connections to an historic era in the country’s musical evolution.”
