Time for Three Concert - March 22, 2014
Time for Three is one of the few crossover groups that is a "must see". Tf3 two violinists (both with Indiana ties) and a bassist are classically trained but versed in all styles. Their take on pop, jazz, bluegrass, and folk songs is fantastic! Listen to their music here.
This will be the first time Tf3 will be performing with an all-string orchestra, so even if you've seen them before, this concert will be unique. Take advantage of advance ticket discount!

Monty Python's SPAMALOT
February 21 - March 8, 2014 • 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Muncie Civic Mainstage Theatre
216 East Main Street
Muncie Civic Theatre presents Monty Python's SPAMALOT on the Mainstage Theatre February 21-22, February 28-March 2, & March 6-8. Thursday, Friday, & Saturday shows are at 7:30pm and the Sunday Matinee on March 2nd is at 2:00pm. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for Groups of 10+, and $10 for students & children. Reserved Seating. Call the Box office at 288-PLAY
Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and The Holy Grail, Spamalot retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Featuring songs such as "We're Not Dead Yet," you'll want to jump out of your seat and join the quest. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful show girls?
The New York times says of the broadway production...
"It seems safe to say that such a good time is being had by so many people (including the cast) at the Shubert Theater that this fitful, eager celebration of inanity will find a large and lucrative audience among those who value the virtues of shrewd idiocy, artful tackiness and wide-eyed impiety."
