Western students will be able to witness and enjoy unseen tales and stories from MTV’s “The Buried Life” as the cast makes its way from the television set to the Performing Arts Center Mainstage on Monday, Feb. 6 at 7:30 p.m.
The event is hosted by Associated Students Productions Special Events and is $12 for Western students and $16 for general admission.
The cast of “The Buried Life,” Ben Nemtin, Dave Lingwood, Duncan Penn and Jonnie Penn, will be sharing stories and video footage and interacting with the audience throughout the event, said AS Productions Special Events Coordinator Jordan Renshaw. The entire event will be based on The Buried Life’s adventures not seen on television, as well as how how they complete their own dreams as those of other’s.
The event is also tied in to “Fears vs. Dreams” in the Viking Union Gallery. Both events share similar themes of hope and awareness of the need for compassion, Renshaw said. At the end of the Buried Life event, the guys will move to the gallery for a meet-and-greet session for the “Fears vs. Dreams” reception.
“The Buried Life” is not just for fans of the show, Renshaw said, but for anyone and everyone to come and have a good time.
“You don’t need to be a fan of the show to enjoy ‘The Buried Life’ live,” Renshaw said. “They’re hilarious guys on stage as well, and their passion for what they do is blatantly genuine.”
Regardless if it’s a die-hard fan or someone who has never seen the show, Renshaw is both excited and hopeful that those attending the event will enjoy themselves, “The Buried Life” and the night’s theme, he said.
“The show has definitely made an impact on some people emotionally, and the whole point of this event is to share a common longing for hope and optimism in our communities,” Renshaw said.
