This performance will mark the second time that the Golden Dragon Acrobats have wowed attendees at Oklahoma’s only public liberal arts university. The acrobats thrilled a capacity audience upon their first visit to campus in 2006 with death-defying stunts that have lingered long in the memory of those who attended the show.
Dr. Ken Bohannon, associate professor of music and coordinator of the Davis-Waldorf Performing Arts Series, is ecstatic to welcome the Golden Dragon Acrobats back to Chickasha.
“The mission of the Davis-Waldorf Performing Arts Series is to bring top-notch talent capable of delivering culturally-rich performances to the campus and surrounding communities at an affordable price,” Bohannon said. “In the 13 years we’ve been hosting these shows, there are a handful of performances that stick out in my mind as the yardstick by which I judge all of the others.”
“The Golden Dragon Acrobats gave us one of those performances in 2006 and I can’t wait to see how their show has been refined and improved since. This show will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of my year.”
The DWPAS is produced by USAO in conjunction with the Chickasha Public School Foundation and is supported in part by an award from the Oklahoma Arts Council, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Walton Family Foundation (through Arvest Bank) and the USAO Foundation.
