“A Picasso” & “Murder by Poe”
7:30pm Thurs.-Sat., 2pm Sun.; $6
“A Picasso” is set in Paris in 1941. The famous artist becomes
involved in a cat-and-mouse drama of art and politics within
the Nazi regime. “Murder by Poe” is adapted from the stories
of Edgar Allan Poe, taking the audience to a dark space where
there are “as many rooms as there are tales.” The two plays
are at the Lab Theatre in the UNL Temple Building. Call 472-4747 for more
information.

                  a 5-piece band, and a 40+ year history. Their current show is
jam packed with music from Michael Buble, Maroon 5, and three medleys
featuring 80’s dance music, Broadway’s Dream Girls and a tribute to Michael
Jackson. The performance is at the Lincoln Community Playhouse. For more
information call 489-7529.

NWU Opera “Hansel & Gretel”
7:30 pm Fri. & Sat.
$10 adults; $5 seniors & students
This fairy tale opera tells the story of Hansel and Gretel, the
children of a poor broom maker. The children would rather sing and dance
than do their chores. When their mother sees the work undone, she scolds
them and sends them off into the woods to pick berries for supper. See what
happens when they get lost near the Gingerbread Witch’s lair and fall asleep!
The opera is at the O’Donnell Theatre on the NWU campus. Call 465-2270 for
