Take a group of talented pianists, add some comedic antic, a good dose of audience participation and a little “friendly” competition, and you’ll have a highly entertaining evening with Midwest Dueling Pianos.
This highly-sought-after performance group will take the West Plains Civic Center theater stage at 7 p.m. March 21.
The performance is being sponsored by Missouri State University-West Plains’ University/Community Programs (U/CP) Department.
Tickets are $10 each. They are available through the civic center box office, 110 St. Louis St., from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays or by phone at 417-256-8087.
Missouri State-West Plains students with a BearPass ID will be admitted free.
The Rochester, Michigan-based group uses audience participation to create an exciting, hilarious and fun musical experience that can be enjoyed by all ages, organizers said.
Musicians take song requests from audience members, then dive into a hilarious – and talented – competition, pitting the pianists against each other to see who does the best rendition of the requested song.
The young, energetic entertainers can perform a wide range of musical selections – from today’s hits to songs as far back as audiences can remember. The result is an evening of comedy and music that won’t soon be forgotten, organizers said.
“We contracted with this group in 2017, and the audience found them to be both hilarious and incredibly talented,” said U/CP Director Brenda Polyard.
“Come join us and enjoy these wonderfully talented artists who have a large range of music in their repertoire,” she added.
