Swann Song's Swan Song

Swann Song Revival

Okay, so you didn't have a chance to see Swann Song Revival this past weekend because you had to wax your legs or had laundry to do or something boring like that. I understand. To quote Lennon, "Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans". Fortunately for you, peanut, you have two more chances to see the show this Thursday and Friday at the Farmland Community Center (100 N. Main St, Farmland, Indiana)!
Yes, performances start with dinner at 6:30 pm and with the show beginning at 7:00 pm. Tickets for the dinner and the show are $20.00 ($18.00 for seniors). Tickets for just the show are $10.00.
For reservations and more information, call 765-468-7631.
Two final chances until the Swann family disappear back into the mists of the greater lower valley! So don't be a rube! Go to the show!
