BATON ROUGE - State leaders with thick skins will be among the audience at Louisiana's 66th Annual Gridiron Show this weekend.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday night and the show begins at 7:45 p.m. Tickets are $25 each and can be purchased at the door. However, seats are going fast with advance sales, particularly on Friday night. Those who want to attend should email show staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proceeds this year go to scholarships for two Louisiana college students majoring in journalism.
Audience members are seated at tables of 10 people. Outside food is allowed but all beverages must be purchased at the show, cash only. Audio and video recordings are not permitted.
