You need a massage after watching this group of amazing athletes. I don't know how they last more than one season as rugged as the performance is. The 11 year old young man was amazing.

It isn't required to purchase the tickets in advance but it does allow for better seating. If you call 417-336-8888 that is the box office number. We will be looking forward to seeing you.

We went June 7. The theatre was hardly full. However I'm a planner and would get my tickets just to be sure. At the end of June you'll be more in season.
