2013-14 season starts in September

Nationally acclaimed acts in country music, R&B, pop and even tap dance and comedy are all coming to town for the 2013-14 See Lancaster SC Performing Arts Series. 

Jimola Wade, who manages the series, recently announced next season's schedule, which runs from September to April. 

Country and gospel vocal quartet The Oak Ridge Boys kick things off Sept. 6. 

The next show is Oct. 26 for Tap – The Show, which features a group of tap dancers. 

Old-school R&B and funk group Ohio Players come to town Dec. 6. Country music singer Travis Tritt will be here Jan. 11, followed by pop vocal trio The Lettermen on Feb. 15 and stand-up comedian James Gregory on April 12. 

All of the performances will be staged at Bundy Auditorium inside the Bradley Arts & Sciences Building at the University of South Carolina Lancaster. 

“This season, our stage will be filled with talent,” Wade said. 

“Since announcing the new series on social media, my phone and email has been loaded with inquiries from fans trying to get their tickets early.” 

This year, the number of performances has been reduced from nine to six. Because of that, Wade said season ticket prices will be 30 percent cheaper. 

She said while the economy has forced many performing arts series to scale back on quality, the continued local support allows Lancaster to continue offering “top-flight” entertainment. 

“As always, the Lancaster Performing Arts Series assures you can experience an incredible list of top-quality arts performances right here on the campus of USC Lancaster,” Wade said. 

Season tickets for the 2013-14 series are on sale now. Individual tickets, if still available, will go on sale Aug. 1.
