'Once' the musical to be performed at Gallagher Bluedorn

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The UNI Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center will host the Tony Award-winning musical "Once" at 2 and 7:30 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 21.

Featuring an ensemble of actor/musicians who play their own instruments on stage, "Once" tells the enchanting tale off a Dublin street musician who is about to give up on his dream when a beautiful young woman takes a sudden interest in his love songs. As the chemistry between them grows, his music soars to powerful new heights, but their unlikely connection turns out to be deeper and more complex than your everyday romance.

Ticket prices for "Once" begin at $26 and can be purchased at any UNItix location, at www.gbpac.com/Once or by calling 319-273-4849. UNI students must bring their school ID to the Gallagher Bluedorn box office to receive their free ticket.
