UL LAFAYETTE OPERA THEATER TO PERFORM 'SOME ENCHANTED EVENING'
 
The UL Lafayette Opera Theater, under the direction of Shawn Roy, will present a fall production entitled Some Enchanted Evening: The Songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein.

The production will take place in Burke Theatre on the UL Lafayette campus on Nov. 3, 4 and 5 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 6 at 3 p.m. Admission for the musical is $10 for the general public and free for UL Lafayette students, faculty and staff. There is also a reduced price of $5 for other students with appropriate I.D.

The show features songs by one of the greatest songwriting team of the American Musical Theatre, but placed in a contemporary setting. It gives the performers and the audience a chance to listen to these songs with a fresh ear and opens up a new world for younger audiences who may not know these treasures from the Golden Age of Broadway.

The show boasts a small cast of seven young talented UL Lafayette voice students and the musical director for the show is David Boudreaux, an alumnus of the School of Music who recently received his masters degree from New York University. Set design is by Duncan Thislethwaite and lighting design is by Ken Harrelson.

Tickets are available at the door only and for more information about the show, please call the School of Music and Performing Arts at 337-482-6012 or arts.louisiana.edu.
