8 p.m. March 2 - 3, 2:30 p.m. March 4
Studio Theatre (Limited seating)
Tickets: $5
Lab Series Production directed by senior theatre student Nathan Autrey
Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland in 1934, word arrives on Inishmaan that the Hollywood director Robert Flaherty is coming to a neighboring island to film Man of Aran. The one person who wants to be in the film more than anybody is young Cripple Billy. Filled with a cast of extraordinary characters and unexpected plot turns, the audience follows along on Cripple Billy's crazy journey of hope and discovery in the great tradition of Irish storytelling.


The Threepenny Opera by Bertolt Bercht, Music by Kurt Weill

8 p.m. March 30 - 31, 8 p.m. April 12, 13 and 14, 2:30 p.m. April 1 and 15
University Theatre
Tickets: $15 for adults; $11.50 for students, senior citizens and UNT faculty/staff
Libretto Translation by Robert David MacDonald, lyrics by Jeremy Sams. In collaboration with the Department of English. Directed by Marjorie Hayes. Based on Elizabeth Hauptmann's German translation of John Gay's The Beggar's Opera, an 18th century satire on popular entertainment that parodied the bourgeois and presented a veiled political attack on the prime minister's disregard for the commoners, Bertolt Brecht and composer Kurt Weill created the 1928 adaptation that almost caused riots when it opened. Bobby Darin's hit song Mack The Knife is from the score along with the famous Pirate Jenny number. The MacDonald/Sams adaptation pushes the time ahead to the future King William's coronation and serves up a delectable dark satire complete with London's society of suave thieves, sassy prostitutes, ingenious criminals, corrupt police, and reprieving royalty.

University Theatre

Featuring choreography by senior dance students as part of their advanced choreography class.
