                                            The Regal Opera Company is performing
                                                Gilbert and Sullivan’s Mikado
                                                    on September 15 at 8:00 p.m.
                                                   and September 17 at 2:00 p.m.
This operetta is one of, if not, the best of Gilbert and Sullivan’s collaborations. The Mikado is all about British law, social custom, and so-
ciety, and has the exotic veil of Japanese trappings. Within this setting, we find a delightful love story and Three Little Maids from
School! There are beheadings (on paper), court intrigue, unrequited love, and yes, of course, Yum-Yum does marry Nanki-poo. Come
and enjoy this well-written, comical operetta.

The Star-Telegram will present the production at the Colleyville Center, 5301 Riverwalk Dr. in Colleyville.

Tickets are: $12 for adults, $10 for seniors 65 and over/students/ and children under 12, $8 for groups of 10 or more.

Call 817-788-9973 for tickets.

Refreshments are sponsored by Hot Chocolates of Hurst.

                                             MURDER AT THE MEYERSON

  LYRIC STAGE PRESENTS CONCERT PERFORMANCE OF SONDHEIM’S SWEENEY TODD ON SEPTEM-
                  BER 12, 2006 AT DALLAS’ MEYERSON SYMPHONY CENTER
DALLAS, Texas – Since 1994, New Yorkers have been serenaded by New York City Center's Encores!® Great American Musicals in
Concert, a celebration of the rarely-heard works of America's most important composers and lyricists. Until now, Dallas audiences have
not had that opportunity. That changes on Tuesday, September 12, 2006, when Lyric Stage presents Stephen Sondheim’s SWEENEY
TODD in the glorious Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center.

“SWEENEY TODD is the rare instance of a musical thriller, and north Texas audiences will get to experience it the way it was meant to
be performed,” said Steven Jones, Founding Producer of Lyric Stage. “The 35-member cast and 35-piece orchestra, which will soar in
the acoustically spectacular hall, are sure to present the concert event of the season.”

Composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim and book writer Hugh Wheeler’s chilling, suspenseful, heart-pounding SWEENEY TODD recounts
the murderous barber-ism and culinary crime of the unjustly exiled barber who returns to 19th century London seeking revenge against
the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. His thirst for blood soon expands to include his unfortunate customers,
and the resourceful proprietress of the pie shop downstairs soon has the people of London lining up in droves with her mysterious new
meat pie recipe!

“Although sophisticated and macabre, SWEENEY TODD nevertheless has a great sense of fun, mixing intense drama with howling
funny moments of dark humor,” Jones added. “Audiences will find themselves laughing hysterically one moment and gasping in surprise
the next.”

The original production of SWEENEY TODD opened March 1, 1979, at Broadway’s Uris Theatre (now the Gershwin) and ran for 557
performances, winning 9 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The current Broadway revival, starring Patti LuPone and Michael
Cerveris, opened November 3, 2005, and is still running at Broadway’s Eugene O’Neill Theatre.

Julie Johnson and Greg Dulice will star as Mrs. Lovett and Sweeney Todd in Lyric Stage’s production. The cast includes Dara White-
head Allen as Johanna, Shane Peterman as Anthony, Michael J. Ross as Tobias, Jeffrey Snider as Judge Turpin, Jackson Ross Best,
Jr. as Pirelli Stephen Austin as the Beadle and Miranda Lind as the Beggar Woman. The principals will be joined by a 27-member cho-
rus and 35-piece Lyric Stage orchestra under the baton of conductor Jay Dias. Cheryl Denson will stage this special concert event.

SWEENEY TODD will play one performance only at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, 2301 Flora Street in the Arts District on
September 12 @ 8:00 PM. Tickets are priced from $20-$45 and are available online at www.lyricstage.org or by calling the box office @
972-252-2787.

Founded in 1993, Lyric Stage is Dallas County's only locally produced, professional musical theater company. Under Founding Producer
Steven Jones' leadership, it has become north Texas' most honored theater, winning 30 Dallas Theatre League Leon Rabin Awards and
a special citation from the Dallas Theatre Critics Forum for excellence and innovation. Lyric Stage is dedicated to the development and
preservation of the American musical. More information can be found by visiting www.lyricstage.org or by calling 972-594-1904.

          THE LABYRINTH THEATRE Presents THE SISTERS ROSENSWEIG

Richardson, TX - The Labyrinth Theatre announces the first production in its 2006/2007 season of thought
                      provoking and intellectually challenging theatre:




                                           The Sisters Rosensweig
                                                  By Wendy Wasserstein
                                                  Directed by Kevin L. Ash

              The Sisters Rosensweig is a play about 3 sisters who come together for the eldest’s 54th birthday party. This
              comedy of family and identity deals with the lives of the three sisters (and one teen daughter) and their jour-
              ney to discover or rediscover who they are. Through their interactions with a renowned London director
              (dating the sister Pheni), Tom the teenage freedom fighter, Merv the world leader in synthetic animal protec-
              tive covering (fake furs), and an upper crust British gentleman, they finally come to terms with who they are,
              who they think they should be, and ultimately rediscover the spiritual core they seek. This Wendy Wasser-
              stein favorite will benefit cancer research in honor of her passing this year.
              **This play is appropriate for junior high students through adult.

This is an annual event for Tuzer Ballet who have featured dances of everything from tap, modern, ballet, to classical. Tuzer
Ballet has expanded its scope to include “a little bit country” and is extremely excited about this boot scootin’ performance.
The festival which is intended to widen the audience vision of dance will now see how country music can be interpreted
through modern or classical dance. The festival also features performances by area guest artists and dance companies as
well as former Tuzer Ballet dancer Travis Morrison. If you missed last year’s Fall Festival performance, be sure not to miss
this one. It’s a must see.

The Tuzer Ballet is a non-profit, publicly supported organization created for the advance study, performance and apprecia-
tion of classical ballet. The art of dance gives structure, instills discipline and rewards with a sense of accomplishment.
Tuzer Ballet strives to preserve the beauty of dance, to serve the community by improving the quality of life and to advance
the art form of dance. Tuzer Ballet Dance center is located at 410 Glenville Richardson Texas.

The Mission: The CAN organization was created for the purpose of helping cooperative member arts organizations build audiences by supporting each other.
CAN will send notifications to list members with news of member organizations' upcoming events and other arts news of interest.
The Rules:
1) Since this is a "cooperative" of arts organizations supporting each other, member groups who would like to post notices, agree to "receive" notifications from
other member groups in return. Individuals will have the option at any time to "opt-out" if they choose not to receive future notifications by e-mailing the list
manager.
2) In order to preserve the integrity and quality of the postings to this list and to prevent any unwanted "Spamming", all notifications that member groups want
to send through this notification list must come through the list manager. Groups simply send an e-mail notification to the list manager with a descriptive write-up
and it will be sent. If there are multiple notifications that need to go out, they may be grouped together in "digest" format to reduce the number of e-mails that
are sent to the list.
If at anytime, you would like to be removed from this e-mail list or if you are a new organization that would like to join, please e-mail the list manager and your
request will be acted upon in a timely manner.

As always, thank-you for supporting the arts in the DFW area!

Regards,

David Witherspoon
List Manager
