“Oklahoma!” High School Musical Theatre Co.
August 1-4, Thurs, Fri & Sat @7pm, Sunday @1:30pm, Corson Auditorium “Oklahoma!” is the cherished love story of Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey – an endearing, yet independent farm girl.

Garrison Keillor’s “A Praire Home Companion – Radio Romance” Tour

You’ll enjoy two hours of duet singing, absurd improv with sound effects, Guy Noir Private Eye, poetry, outright foolishness and the News from Lake Wobegon.

ZZ Top
Thursday, August 8 @8pm, Kresge Auditorium ZZ Top plays red-hot Texas boogie and blues, and no one does it better – or has done it longer – than this “little ol’ band from Texas.” Known for such hits as “Sharp Dressed Man,” “Gimme All Your Lovin’,” “Legs,” “Cheap Sunglasses” and “Tube Snake Boogie,” the trio was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.

Kris Kristofferson
