Stage Director and Professor of Opera James Hafner and Musical Director Burr Cochran Phillips will showcase their fifth-year production with vintage Hollywood-themed selections. Stage Managers are Madeline Kellogg and Jacqueline Santoni. The opera incorporates the 17 members of its Pacific Opera Theatre and is their second production this year.

With cabaret seating, the venue is ideal for attendees to dine while watching the performance on-stage. This year’s “friend”-raiser sees all new pieces with Ragtime Montage and the show finale being the only two repeats of former years. Song selection is based on the performing abilities of the opera at-large and each year is guaranteed a unique experience. Featured compositions this set include those of American pioneers of classical theatre George Gershwin, Richard Rodgers, and William Schuman. Tickets are $25 general admission, $20 seniors, and $10 for students. If you are looking for something exciting to do this Halloween weekend, look no further than right on our own campus.
