Help us create our Fall 2013 Marching show. The music has been selected...The Villains of Gotham. We are ready, are you?

Every year the Panther Marching Band puts together an 8-minute marching band show. We perform our show at several local events including home football games, as well as three marching festivals throughout the fall. At this point we are in the planning stages of next year’s show. The music has been selected, The Villains of Gotham. The students, staff and the community are excited about the show and all the possibilities. Putting together a high quality marching program is very expensive. This year the show will cost well over $5000. The higher the quality, the more it seems to cost. We are determined to take a step forward this season and create a more impressive show than ever before.  

To do this, our costs will include: music rental, drill writing fees for 170+ students, choreography for the colorguard as well as  guard equipment needs, equipment specific to this year’s show. 

We invite you to be a part of our journey next fall as we tame the menacing villains of Gotham. 

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

This project will come together, no ifs ands or buts. The only thing that can give us trouble is Mother Nature. Weather in Kansas is unpredictable and dictates when we can be outside. Nevertheless we will perform our show several times throughout the fall season.
