Hancher adds May 1-3 performances of 'Stomp' to spring schedule at UI

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- For the fourth season in a row, the University of Iowa Hancher Auditorium will present the percussion/dance spectacle "Stomp." The auditorium has added four "Stomp" performances to its spring schedule, at 8 p.m. Friday, May 1; at 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. Saturday, May 2; and at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 3.

"Stomp" is the British-born international hit in which percussionists with an attitude clog with oil drums strapped to their feet, hammer auto parts while rappelling, and generally bang on just about everything, including the kitchen sink.

"Stomp" tickets are now on sale at the Hancher box office for $32, $29 and $27. UI students and senior citizens qualify for a 20-percent discount; and tickets for audience members 17 and younger are half price.

Hancher box office hours are 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. weekdays, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday and 1-3 p.m. Sunday. From the local calling area or outside Iowa, dial (319) 335-1160. Long distance within Iowa and western Illinois is toll-free, 1-800-HANCHER. Fax to (319) 353-2284. Orders may be charged to VISA, MasterCard or American Express. UI students may charge their purchases to their university bills, and UI faculty and staff may select the option of payroll deduction.

People with special needs for access, seating and auxiliary services should dial (319) 335-1158. This number will be answered by box office personnel prepared to offer assistance with handicapped parking, wheelchair access and seating, hearing augmentation and other services. The line is equipped with TDD for people with hearing impairment who use that technology.

The corporate sponsor of "Stomp" is McLeod Communications through the University of Iowa Foundation. The media sponsor is KDAT-FM in Cedar Rapids.
