NSU summer music revues start this week

Shows from three eras are on schedule

Northeastern State University’s popular music revue series — the River City Players — returns with three weekly shows this summer.

The series, presented by NSU’s Sequoyah Institute, runs Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays through Aug. 2 at the NSU Playhouse, 300 N. Muskogee Ave. in Tahlequah. The playhouse is on the corner of Downing Street and Muskogee Avenue.

The cast includes: Chelsea Clark of Oklahoma City; Tori Giles of Fort Smith, Ark.; Sydney Jennings of Tahlequah; Candace Smith of Bartlesville; Hansen Johnson of Tahlequah; Michael Rappe of Muskogee; Brian Tchirhar of Tahlequah; Melodie McCay Wann of Tulsa; and Daniel Aaron of Tahlequah.

The shows for the 2014 season are:

• Country Legends — a two-step back in time for an evening of your favorite classic country music artists of the ’50s, ’60s, ’70s and ’80s. This show will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Fridays.

• Golden Oldies — a tribute to the Golden Age of rock ’n’ roll hits of the ’50s and ’60s. This show will be at 2 p.m. Saturdays.

• Super Hits of the ’70s and ’80s — a celebration of musical icons. This show will be at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays and Saturdays.

The River City Players’ first show began at NSU in 1983, according to a media release. The first show combined the best of popular music, Broadway hits, gospel and everything in between. Now in its 32nd season, River City continues to showcase the vocal talents and musical styling of the Tahlequah area community.

The daytime box office is available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Woods House at 529 Seminary Ave., in Tahlequah.

The performance box office is open one hour prior to each performance and is in the NSU Playhouse lobby.

Tickets are $13 per adult, $11 each for NSU alumni and NSU employees, $9 for seniors and groups of 12 or more, $7 for students and children, and free to NSU students who present a valid NSU student ID. The June early bird special will save $2 off all tickets that are booked for June performances.
