The Buried Life brings dreams to JCCC on Sept. 20
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — What happens when four regular guys set out on a mission with a list of 50 things they want to do before they die?
If they’re the four guys who went on to star in MTV’s “The Buried Life,” they play basketball with President Barack Obama, appear on Oprah and write a best-selling book, among other things.
Oh, and they help others achieve some of their dreams, as well.
The Buried Life quartet will bring their show to Johnson County Community College at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 20, in Yardley Hall of the Carlsen Center.
Tickets are $10 for JCCC students and $18 for non-students. Tickets are available in person at the JCCC box office in the Carlsen Center or at the student activities desk on the first floor of the Student Center, by phone at 913-469-4445 or online. JCCC student pricing is not available online.
The first 750 people through the doors will receive a free copy of the book written by The Buried Life team, “What Do You Want to Do Before You Die?” Audience members who stay around after the show will have the opportunity for a brief meet and greet, including a group photo with the performers.
Expect a high-energy show, with the four “Buried Life” guys — Jonnie Penn, Dave Lingwood, Duncan Penn and Ben Nemtin — sharing their stories and videos, as well as audience members making a trip to the microphone to share their own bucket list ideas.
Their appearance is co-sponsored by the JCCC Campus Activities Board and JCCC Performing Arts Series.
