CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- A director/designers' presentation for 'The Threepenny Opera,' next month's musical theatre production for Theatre UNI, will take place at 6:30 p.m., Monday, Oct. 14, in the Strayer-Wood Theatre on the University of Northern Iowa campus.

The hour long presentation features director Sandra Walden, a professional singer in New York and a former UNI instructor in the School of Music; scenic designer Mark Parrott, UNI instructor in theatre; lighting designer Eric Lange, UNI associate professor of theatre; and costume designer Amy S. RohrBerg, UNI associate professor of theatre; all speaking on their vision of the production and sharing their research, renderings and models with the audience.

'The presentation will allow the director and the designers to show the audience how the play moved from the written page to the theatrical stage to create the seedy underworld of this wickedly witty musical,' said Jascenna Haislet-Carlson, marketing director and publicist for Theatre UNI.

'The Threepenny Opera' will be presented Nov. 8-17 at the Strayer-Wood Theatre.

The design presentation is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Jascenna Haislet-Carlson at (319) 273-6387.
