Tickets are $28 for adults, $18 for youth and $8 for Missouri S&T students. S&T students can charge admission to student accounts.

The deliberately loose edges of the show camouflage its careful structure, in the same way the trio’s ease with improvisation hides years of rehearsal,” says a Boston Globe reviewer.

The performance is co-sponsored with the Missouri S&T Student Union Board and Bob and Susan Hooper.
