Season Event

Mason's School of Theater and School of Music: The Threepenny Opera - PREVIEW

  • October 26, 2016 at 8:00 pm

Concert Hall

By Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill
Directed by Ken Elston;
Musical Direction by Dr. Dennis Layendecker
Translated by Michael Feingold

This perennial Broadway favorite is a social satire sizzling with innovation. Based on the popular Beggar's Opera, Brecht and Weill's Three Penny Opera echoes the spirit of the German Music Hall style and includes the popular "Mack the Knife." The camaraderie and the sacrifices of war provide context for this humorous look at class warfare sexual politics.

A Talk Back/Q&A with the cast will take place after the first Friday performance of each production.

This performance will also be presented at the Hylton Performing Arts Center on November 3 and 4 at 8 pm and November 5 at 2 and 8 pm. Learn more.
