“In the Mood,” coming to McAlister

The big band, swing dance musical revue known as “In the Mood” will be performed Thursday, Jan. 31 at 7 p.m. in McAlister Auditorium on the Furman campus.

“In the Mood” is presented by Artbeat, Inc., a not-for-profit arts presenter. Tickets are $29 – $49 plus service charges and are available at Timmons Arena or Ticketmaster. Group ticket prices are also available.

The revue features authentic music arrangements, costumes and choreography which combine to recreate the big band era, showing the music’s influence during the WWII years.
