DIXON – Tickets for a Whitney Houston musical tribute show, with the proceeds going toward building two statues in Dixon, go on sale today.

The show will be held on March 14 in the Dixon High School auditorium. Doors will open at 6 p.m., with a performance from the Center Stage Dance Studio at 7 p.m., and the main performance by Jazmine will start at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets for the show are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Tickets are available at Dixon Tourism, Dixon Main Street and Venier Jewelers, the show’s organizer, John Weitzel said.

Proceeds from the show, and three upcoming musical tributes, will go toward building the Ronald Reagan lifeguard statue at Lowell Park and a statue of “Father” John Dixon, Weitzel said.
