Tickets are on sale now. Tickets included with sponsorship packages receive priority, and the remainder of the seating will be assigned on a first come, first served basis. The venue does not admit persons under 18.
The latest updates will be posted to Durant Main Street’s Twitter feed and Facebook page. Dancers are taking an extremely competitive approach to the performance. Practices are going on throughout Texoma, and costuming is becoming serious.
