Hello Broncos and welcome back to campus!
The last few weeks at Miller have been busy as we prepare for this upcoming school year! The energy has changed as students begin to move onto campus and commence a new journey at Western Michigan University.
Last week’s Welcome Week festivities for incoming WMU freshmen are a wonderful opportunity to take advantage to learn more about extracurricular activities offered at WMU. We’ve got a couple of things we’re excited to offer students this coming year.
Bronco Bash: We’ll Be There!
We are geared up to be at Western’s annual Bronco Bash with information about our upcoming season, a photo contest and a prize wheel where you could win a pair of tickets to our upcoming season! WMU Bronco Bash takes place from 3-7 p.m. on Sangren Plaza and our booth is located near the stage, so stop on by!
Miller Present’s KZOO Sings!
On Thursday, September 22 from 7-9 p.m. Miller Auditorium will be hosting our first ever Kzoo Sings! Here’s how it works: You show up and get a lyric sheet. You will join a group of highs, mids or lows, and by the end of the night, master three-part harmonies for a pop song or two. Sessions may be recorded so you will have something to share! No music reading ability is required and no auditions will be conducted—everyone is welcome! All you have to do prior to arrival is to listen to the song(s) that will be sung.
What Will Be Coming To Miller This Fall?
We have a collection of stellar acts coming to the Miller stage this fall that you do NOT want to miss! We will be kicking off the fall with Dirty Dancing which is based on the movie classic! We will also be bringing our headliner this season, The Book of Mormon which has conquered the theatrical realm of comedy snatching up nine Tony Awards since it has taken the Broadway stage. Some other acts perfect for students are RENT, MercyMe, and Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker. For a full season listing, visit http://millerauditorium.com/season-events
Ramen-boiling students, I have great news for you! Did you know that WMU students receive 50% off one ticket per participating Miller season show?! Using Miller as a resource to see world renowned performances right here on campus is an opportunity you don’t want to let slide during your time here in the Zoo.
Much more to come so stay tuned on our social media channels!
We are adding performances left and right and you definitely do not want to miss the latest Miller news.
