Upper School Musical and Visual Arts Showcase this Weekend!

The University Prep Fine Arts Department is excited to present two major fall events this weekend. On Friday, the Visual Arts Showcase will feature works from both Middle and Upper School students while our jazz ensembles perform. This event will take place from 5:30-7:00 p.m. and refreshments will be served.

Immediately following the showcase, the Play Production and Stagecraft classes present the fall musical, Assassins,with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and book by John Weidman. This provocative play, which features 45 actors, crew and musicians, is an investigation of the American Dream, and how different voices are heard, or ignored, in our society.

The play will have three performances in Founders Hall. A matinee on Thursday, November 15, at 4:00 p.m. and evening shows on Friday and Saturday, November 16 and 17, at 7:30 p.m. You may reserve free tickets online here. Please note that the subject matter is sophisticated, and the play may not be appropriate for persons 12 years of age or younger. Each performance runs for 90 minutes without intermission and will be followed by a talk-back with the performers.

We hope to see you at UPrep this weekend!
