For tickets and information, call 304-293-SHOW or go to www.events.wvu.edu. “I Love Lucy” Live On Stage is the brand new hit stage show adapted from the most beloved program in television history! It is 1952 and you are a member of the Desilu Playhouse studio audience awaiting the filming of two hilarious and oh-so-familiar “I Love Lucy” episodes. A charming host entertains and enlightens you to the behind-the-scenes filming process of this brand new thing called “television,” the Crystaltone Singers perform advertising jingles in perfect ’50s style harmony, and the sidesplitting antics of America’s favorite foursome—Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel—are presented live on stage and in color for the very first time! It’s a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience TV Guide’s William Keck calls “the most entertaining stage production I’ve seen in years—including Broadway!” Website: http://www.ilovelucylive.com/

The Spring concert will feature a “British Invasion” of music: The Beatles, The Who, Downton Abby, as well as music by classical British composers Elgar, Vaughan Williams, and Purcell. The orchestra is under the direction of Taylor Giorgio and will feature Carrie Sullivan as tuba soloist. A reception, with the opportunity to meet the performers of the orchestra, will immediately follow the concert.
