Garrison Keillor to perform at OHIO on Tuesday

Apr 9, 2010
From staff reports

Garrison Keillor, host of the popular radio show "A Prairie Home Companion," will perform live at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, at Templeton-Blackburn Alumni Memorial Auditorium.

Keillor got his start when he founded "A Prairie Home Companion" in 1974. He has been hosting the show ever since. Through poetry, song, and his famous down-to-earth musings about life in the American Midwest, Keillor has developed his signature storytelling style and dry wit. 

"An Evening with Garrison Keillor" showcases the best of Keillor, allowing him to further delve into the stories his fans adore. Keillor shares tales of everything ranging from grade-school crushes, to growing up in a low thermostat household, to camping in the snow with Boy Scouts.

This presentation is supported by the Ohio University Performing Arts Series, the Division of Student Affairs, Hocking Valley Bank, WOUB Radio Network, and the Ohio Arts Council.

Tickets for this performance may be purchased at the Templeton-Blackburn Alumni Memorial Auditorium Ticket Office from noon to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and one hour before the show. Tickets can also be purchased online. For tickets or more information, please call 740-593-1780 or visit the Performing Arts Web site.
