Never before have an odder group of entertainers been assembled. Coming to UCA as part of its 2012/2013 Public Appearances season:

Sep. 24: Tim Gunn (of "Project Runway" fame)
Sep. 30: Preservation Hall Jazz Band & The Del McCoury Band (a match made in "A Prairie Home Companion" heaven)
Oct. 8: The Capitol Steps (former congressional staffers, making jokes)
Oct. 18: Rufus Wainwright (son of Loudon, fan of Judy Garland, wearer of lots of scrarves)
Nov. 1: Gary Puckett and the Union Gap ("Young girl, get out of my mind...you're much too young girl")
Nov. 5: "Shrek the Musical" (meta fairy tale book-turned-cartoon-turned-stage play)
Dec. 9: A Celtic Christmas (because Arkansas can't get enough of the Celts)
Jan. 25: "A Chorus Line" (meta Broadway)
Feb. 2: Drumline Live (by the people that brought you "Drumline" the movie. Yes!)
Feb. 12: Herm Edwards (obnoxious ESPN analyst, former NFL coach)
March 7: Temptation of Muses (modern dance + classical trio)
April 2: Amy Grant (the Madonna of the contemporary Christian world)
