Be a Goonie

March 17, 2008 — Goons

Entertainment & Arts Management students have created a special offer to drive college student attendance for the latest production at the Wilma Theater, Ying Tong - A Walk With the Goons. Get free popcorn being given out at the Drexel bookstore on March 6th and you may be lucky enough to find two free tickets hidden inside the bag. Don't despair if you don't score free tickets; Drexel students will be able to buy $20 student rush tickets for the performance plus attend a reception with cast members on Thursday, March 13th, 7:30 PM.

Ying Tong - A Walk With the Goons chronicles the story of the famous BBC Radio comedy series The Goon Show and its rise from cult status to raving success, resulting from the series' trademark, profound silliness. With Ying Tong, UK playwright Roy Smiles delves into the mind of Goon writer and 'godfather of alternative comedy' Spike Milligan who goes gaga from the strain of creating brilliant comedy and his fierce competition with Goonie cast-mate Peter Sellers.
