UTSA musical fund-raiser benefits Lyric Theatre

(May 10, 2004)--The UTSA Department of Music will present a benefit performance of the 1950s musical "Forever Plaid" at 7:30 p.m. May 17 in the Arts Building Recital Hall on the 1604 Campus.

Admission to the fund-raiser is a suggested donation of $10.

Proceeds from the performance benefit the UTSA Lyric Theatre, which originally presented "Forever Plaid" last October, as well as the annual Madrigal Dinner, the operas "Marriage of Figaro," "Hansel and Gretel," "Little Red Riding Hood" and "Das Barbecu," a musical comedy about Texas based on Wagner's opera "The Ring of Nibelungen."

Directed by William McCrary, UTSA assistant professor of music and Lyric Theatre director, and choreographed by Michelle Pietri, a San Antonio choreographer, the upbeat musical is the story of four young men in the 1950s pursuing their dream of becoming the next big thing in singing quartets.

The production reflects the music of the era in the songs "Three Coins in a Fountain," "Sixteen Tons" and "Crazy About You, Baby."

For more information, contact William McCrary at 210-458-5681 or Cindy Solis at 210-458-5685.
