BROOKINGS – Entering the 12th season of bringing top musicians and global artists to Brookings and South Dakota State University, Woodbine Productions will now offer patrons the convenience of selecting, purchasing and printing tickets from their home computer or mobile device.
Beginning at 10 a.m. Monday, Sept. 9, single tickets will be available at www.woodbineproductions.com. For patrons who prefer not to use the online option, personal orders may be handled by calling the School of Performing Arts at 605-688-5187. Online orders will be fulfilled until two hours prior to each performance.
Opening the season in Larson Memorial Concert Hall on Tuesday, Sept. 24, will be an evening of familiar Broadway showtunes presented by “The Four Phantoms.” An extravagant celebration of the iconic music of Broadway and more, The Four Phantoms brings together four former Phantoms from the Tony Award-winning “The Phantom of the Opera” for an unforgettable night of entertainment.
On Oct. 15, America’s top-touring swing band, “Big Bad Voodoo Daddy,” comes to the stage of the Larson Memorial Concert Hall. Together for over 25 years, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy – famously named after an autograph by blues legend Albert Collins – has appeared in concert venues across the world, sold millions of records, and had its music appear in hundreds of movies and television shows. With sold-out concerts from the Hollywood Bowl to Lincoln Center, the group has performed with many of the country’s finest symphony orchestras and made television appearances ranging from “Dancing with the Stars” to Superbowl XXXIII.
Taking a break until spring, Woodbine then offers the final performance of the season, “The New Shanghai Circus,” in the new Proscenium Theatre, May 4, 2020. More than 30 acrobats from China bring the Orient to Brookings in a fast-paced, exciting production featuring internationally award-winning acts.
Woodbine Productions is a partnership between the SDSU Foundation and the SDSU School of Performing Arts. Since 2007, Woodbine Productions has brought the highest level of performers to Brookings and all expenses have been paid by an anonymous benefactor. Tickets purchased for the performances become scholarships for students in the SDSU School of Performing Arts.
