The University of West Georgia’s Townsend Center for the Performing Arts proudly presents Riders in the Sky on Friday, Dec. 9 at 7:30 p.m. No matter what age, you will enjoy hours of fun with America’s Favorite Cowboys. Riders in the Sky are comedians whose wacky western wit and songs have delighted audiences from coast to coast.
Celebrating 33 years together including Grammy Awards for Toy Story 2 and Monsters, Inc., Riders in the Sky gives a saddlebag full of wacky imagination and cowboy music. These four-part harmonizing cowboys have spruced up the bunkhouse, donned their sequined yuletide outfits, and loosed their vivid imaginations to create a holiday musical fantasy for Saddle Pals of all ages. Christmas The Cowboy Way will feature their unique brand of cowboy humor sprinkled with a dash of holiday spice which includes original songs like “Riding Home on Christmas Eve,” “Deck The Bunkhouse Walls,” and “The Last Christmas Medley You’ll Ever Need To Hear.” So put on your merry cheer and saddle up for a holiday evening The Cowboy Way!
Preceding the Riders in the Sky performance, the Townsend Center will continue its annual toy drive tradition. There will be a reception beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Dangle Theatre. Toy donors and their families will enjoy desserts, hors d'oeuvres and holiday music. An unwrapped toy is your ticket to the reception.
Tickets for Riders in the Sky are $20 for adults, $18 for seniors and military, and $15 for children. Visit or call the Townsend Center Box Office at 678-839-4722 Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. or one hour before show time. Tickets may also be purchased online at www.townsendcenter.org.
