Arts Calendar

Gridiron 2019

Date: April 25, 2019 to April 27, 2019,
Venue: Orpheum Theatre - 200 N. Broadway St., Ste. 330, Wichita

The Event:

Locally written and produced, Gridiron stars Wichita print, radio and TV journalists, past and present, who write, act, sing and dance as they spoof the news. (Think Saturday Night Live meets Wichita newsmakers.) Rick Bumgardner, artistic director of Roxie’s Downton, is producer and director. Karla Burns, star of Broadway and self-described as the “brown, round pound of sound” is musical director. The show is presented by the Kansas Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. Wichita’s Gridiron is the longest-running show of its kind in the country. Proceeds go to journalism scholarships and education for students in Kansas colleges. To date, SPJ has distributed more than $240,000. Join us for a good laugh at the year’s news and newsmakers while supporting journalism scholarships.

The Randy Brown Curtain Call after-show party will be held after the show on Friday, April 26 on the Orpheum stage. Come enjoy the show Thursday, Friday or Saturday and on Friday relax with live music and mingle with the cast and crew.
