LAWTON, OK (KSWO) –The Lawton Philharmonic Orchestra will perform their final concert of the season Saturday evening at McMahon Auditorium.

The performance will feature a concert version of popular Broadway and film hit, “The Music Man.”

SkyWARN 7 meteorologist Katie Western and former 7News anchor Jan Stratton are part of the cast along with Matthew Ortner, who shared why these types of performance mean so much to him.

"This is some of the most fun I've had in my life, doing these shows. We're here to give the audience a really good time. If they aren't having fun, we aren't having fun, because all in all we do this for the community, for the people of Lawton," Ortner said.

Doris Lambert, the chorus director and the pianist for the performance, shared her excitement about our local talent as well as the upcoming show.

“The singing is amazing. People will definitely remember and know the songs and have their toes tapping. It is amazing fun filled really funny show. This town is filled with amazing musicians, both instrumentally and singers, and this show is something people are going to be talking about for a long, long time. You should have seen Music Man," Lambert said.

“The Music Man” starts at 8 p.m. Saturday at the McMahon Auditorium. Tickets range between $10 and $50 and can be bought over the phone or online.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
