The University of Arkansas at Little Rock School of Literary and Performing Arts will present a fall musical production of “The Threepenny Opera” Oct. 26-30.
Performances will take place at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 26-29 and at 2:30 p.m. Oct. 30 in the University Theatre in the Center for Performing Arts at UA Little Rock. This production features a variety of students in the Theatre, Music, and English program, as well as alumni, faculty, and community artists.
Written by Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill and directed by Stacy Pendergraft, “The Threepenny Opera” is a biting satire of the post-war rise of capitalism, wrapped up in Weill’s jazzy score, and the tale of Macheath (Mack the Knife), a debonair crime lord on the verge of turning his illegal empire into a legitimate business.
Tickets are $10 for the general public and $5 for University of Arkansas System students and employees, seniors, and members of the military. Tickets can be purchased via this link.
