EIU Music Theatre/Opera to Feature Women in 'Nuthin' But Treble'

Mar-11-2011

The Eastern Illinois University Music Theatre/Opera Ensemble will present "Nuthin’ but Treble: An Evening of Musical Theatre Featuring Women," this month.

Performances are set for 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 25, and Saturday, March 26, in the Doudna Fine Arts Center's Recital Hall.

The ensemble will perform Gilbert and Sullivan's "Trial By Jury," a one-act farcical courtroom comedy set in Britain, followed by scenes from "Spring Awakening," "Smokey Joe’s Café," "The Sound of Music," "Chicago" and "I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change."

The scenes are edgy and deal with many themes, including murder, sex, relationships, coming of age, and mother/daughter issues.

The performance is directed by music department faculty member Jay Ivey and accompanied by music graduate student Pamala Machala.

Tickets -- $5 for the general public and $3 for students, senior citizens and EIU employees -- may be purchased in person at the Doudna Fine Arts Center Box Office, by telephone at 217-581-3110, or online at www.eiu.edu/doudna.

The Doudna Fine Arts Center, located on the EIU campus, is a division of the EIU College of Arts and Humanities.
