Prairie Home ticket sales opened to campus community

April 29, 2003

KALAMAZOO -- Tickets for the June 21 performance of "A Prairie Home Companion" at Western Michigan University's Miller Auditorium have been opened to WMU faculty, staff and students.

Public radio station WMUK, which is bringing the show to WMU, announced the move today to show its appreciation for "the support of the faculty, staff and students at Western." Ticket sales to the station's donors began last week. Ticket sales to the general public are not scheduled to begin until May 5.

Those wishing to purchase tickets can call Miller Auditorium at (269) 387-2300 or visit the radio station's Web site at <www.wmuk.org> and click on the donor tickets link. The password for ticket purchases is WMUK-78565.

"A Prairie Home Companion" features the talents of Sue Scott and Tim Russell, "the man of many voices," with sound effects by Fred Newman. Fans can also count on keyboardist Rich Dworsky, who heads up The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, and stories from Lake Wobegon, "the little town that time forgot and decades can't improve," from one of America's foremost humorists, Garrison Keillor.

The June 21 broadcast from Kalamazoo is co-presented by Minnesota Public Radio and WMUK, public radio for Southwest Michigan, and is produced by Prairie Home Productions. The broadcast from Miller Auditorium is sponsored by the Kalamazoo Radisson Plaza Hotel.
