Arts, Events, and Speakers

Wed.-Sun., September 10-13

Carly Seward (Gretchen) and Jeff Duncan (Lutz) in a scene from
the operetta The Student Prince, directed by Tim Herman. An
operetta is a musical-dramatic production, like an opera, but
is much more light-hearted and sentimental than an opera, and
has appeal for a wider audience. James Bankhead, the musical
director for the show, said, "The Student Prince has beautiful
melodies, and is charming and happy. Tim Herman has a very
fine cast, and excellent crew." The Student Prince will run
from September 10-12, 7:30 p.m. and September 13, 2 p.m. in
Laxson. (photo Jeff Teeter)
