BOLIVAR, Mo. — The Southwest Baptist University Showcase Singers will present “Rock Around the Clock!!” at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, March 30, in the Meyer Recital Hall of Casebolt Music Center on the Bolivar campus.

The Showcase Singers will be joined by other cast members in presenting a high-energy retrospective of the music and entertainment of the 1950s. The production features 15 of the top hits of the decade as well as other entertainment.

“It was an age of innocence and also evolution in terms of the popular music of that time,” said Dr. James R.
