Great entertainment can be yours for a value price via SUU’s College of Performing & Visual Arts (CPVA), which is offering seven attractions in both the Theatre Arts & Dance and Music Masterworks Series in its 2013-14 season, with two money-saving options to choose from to enjoy all the college's performances.
At a near 50-percent discount, arts enthusiasts can enjoy an annual pass for either series for just $38.50 (regularly $70). Additionally, and new this year, the college will offer the CPVA Flex Pass, which provides six admissions to either Theatre Arts & Dance or Music Masterworks events. The unique aspect of the Flex Pass is that is can be used in any variation, from a single entrance to one event to using all six entrances for a single event. The Flex Pass is a great entertainment bargain for only $35 per Pass (regularly $60).
The 2013-2014 Theatre Arts & Dance Series kicks off with an innovative production of William Shakespeare’s beloved romantic tragedy Romeo and Juliet, set in the post-war 1950s. The series also includes the December holiday favorite Peter Sham and Brad Carroll’s A Christmas Carol on the Air, featuring Fred C. Adams as Scrooge; in February, Bat Boy The Musical (Content Advisory: mature themes and language); and in April, in rotating repertory, the romantic musical The Fantasticks! and Oscar Wilde’s comedy of manners, An Ideal Husband. This series also includes two breath-taking dance concerts — November's Breaking Bounds: Student Dance Concert and Journeys: Faculty Dance Concert, in late February.
With music in the air throughout the year, the popular Music Masterworks series line-up is no less impressive. The seven attraction series includes an Autumn Choir Concert (October), an Autumn Wind Symphony Concert (November), the ever-popular Holiday Choir and Wind Symphony Concert (December), the SUU Jazz Band performing with guest artist trombonist Delfeayo Marsalis (February), the SUU Opera (March), the Spring Symphony Orchestra and Choir Concert (April), and a Spring Wind Symphony Concert (April).
