Timeless Concerts Presents Italy v Germany Concert

Timeless Concerts returns to the Arlington Museum of Art to present another in its long running series of classical concerts. An hour of music that spans centuries will begin at 8pm on Saturday, November 10.

The Chenoweth-Hood-Kang trio will represent Germany with some of the greatest and most famous music of all time composed in Germany: Beethoven and Brahms. Their tenor and soprano, Sergio Cepeda and Judith Rodriguez, will represent Italy with passionate Puccini and Verdi! Who is more dramatic and passionate, the Germans, or the Italians? Works by German film score composer Hans Zimmer will also be performed. Many may be surprised that although his name is not familiar, his scores certainly are, ranging from “Driving Miss Daisy” to “Pirates of the Caribbean.” The post-concert party is included in the ticket price, when you may give your requests to pianist Steve Stroud. Complimentary buffet of fruit/cheese/desserts/wine/soft drinks will be available and BYOB accepted.

UTA’s Department of Theatre Arts presents MavLab Plays

The University of Texas at Arlington’s Maverick Theatre Company presents MavLab. Experience the exciting, thought provoking plays that make up the Maverick Theatre Company’s MavLab! This semester’s series includes THE SHOCK OF RECOGNITION by Robert Anderson, directed by UTA Theatre Arts student Coy Rubalcaba, LADIES IN WAITING by Michele Palermo, directed by Assistant Professor of Instruction Detra Payne, and the world premiere of SOME SUNNY DAY written and directed by UTA Theatre Arts student Straton Rushing.

THE SHOCK OF RECOGNITION, by Robert Anderson, breaks in on a difference of opinion between an earnest young dramatist and his matter-of-fact producer who doesn’t like the opening moment of the play. A wife is having breakfast in bed and she says something to her husband, who is in the bathroom. He comes out, jaybird naked, and yells to her, "You know I can’t hear you when the water’s running." The producer doesn’t think this confrontation is quite nice or necessary. The author insists that the scene is quite important and, after all, it lasts only an instant. A quarrel over taste develops.

LADIES IN WAITING is written by Michele Palermo. In a room at All Saints Church fifty minutes before her wedding, Julie and her bridesmaids are together for the first time in over a year. As they get dressed, do makeup and their hair, they talk about marriage, careers, dating and even death.

SOME SUNNY DAY, written by Theatre Arts student Straton Rushing, is derived from the lines of Vera Lynn’s song “We’ll Meet Again”. The play follows a year in the life of Will Kolikov, a young man living in the early 2000s, who is trying to make a career in radio when things begin to fall apart for him. This bittersweet play explores how we pick up the pieces and start over through music, poetry, and the stories that need to be told most.

THE SHOCK OF RECOGNITION and LADIES IN WAITING will be performed on the same evening with THE SHOCK OF RECOGNITION performing first, followed by a brief intermission with LADIES IN WAITING performing after. The price of admission includes both performances. Performances are presented October 31 & November 2 at 8:00 p.m. and November 3 at 2:30 p.m.. SOME SUNNY DAY will be presented November 1 & 3 at 8:00 p.m. and November 4 at 2:30 p.m.. All performances will be at 502 S. Cooper Street, The Studio Theatre, Room 137 of Fine Arts Building North. Tickets are $10 for general admission.
