Tonight at the Tulsa PAC: Marching, Dancing, High-Stepping, and Singing amid All Those Blaring Horns and Drums
By Rich Fisher
Tulsa, Oklahoma – How does a fully charged, fiercely swinging 15-minute halftime show become a Broadway-ready, two-hour musical? Today, we find out. On this edition of StudioTulsa, we hear from Reggie Brayon, one of the producers of the popular musical-theatre show, "DRUMLine Live," which will stage the second of its two Tulsa performances tonight (Thursday the 4th) at the Tulsa PAC at 7:30pm. (To learn more about this show, please visit www.drumlinelive.com; for ticket availability [and other such information], simply go to tulsapac.com or call 918-596-7111.) As Brayon tells our host Rich Fisher, "DRUMLine Live" is a family-friendly, high-voltage production that employs a 37-member cast of multi-talented performers. Now touring the globe, this show actually began life as a 2002 motion picture --- and both the film and the stage production are based on the Historically Black College and University marching band tradition. With riveting rhythms, bold beats, and ear-grabbing energy, "DRUMLine Live" boasts original compositions as well as soul-infused interpretations of various Top 40 hits.
