Travis Burge Talks About Upcoming Moolight Directions Musical in Honor of D-Day Anniversary [AUDIO]
Today, on Lubbock’s First News, directors Travis Burge and Annie Nichols from Moonlight Directions provided details on the groups upcoming performances.
Moonlight Directions is a part of Moonlight Musicals made up of youth between the ages 14 and 21. The group will be putting on two shows at the Silent Wings Museum later this week. Both shows will be free to the public. The first show will take place this Friday at 4:00PM, and the second show will start at noon this Saturday. In honor of the D-Day landings in Normandy, Moonlight directions will be putting on a 1940 USO concert showcasing music hits from the World War II Era, including songs such as “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” and “I’ll Be Seeing You.”
Both performances will take place inside an air hangar at the Silent Wings Museum. Burge noted the groups excitement for the performances, saying “it has been a lot of fun to get to watch them grow in [this production] and enjoy the music. It’s really cool to see how much they’ve really dove into the music.” Moonlight Directions consists of local high school students who have worked on this production all semester. For more information on their OSU performance, check out the Silent Wings Museum’s webpage.
