Riot Act, Inc. presents The Threepenny Opera by Brecht and Weill Thursday, Feb. 21-Saturday, Feb. 23 and Wednesday, Feb. 27-Friday, March 1. Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. at Walk Festival Hall in Teton Village. Tickets: $25 adults, $20 students/senior, available in advance at www.riotactinc.org or at the door.
The Threepenny Opera by Bertolt Brecht & Kurt Weill will mark Riot Act, Inc.’s second staging of a musical in Jackson following the huge success of The Rocky Horror Show in 2009. The play follows MacHeath “Mac the Knife” as he swoops Polly Peachum, the beggar king’s daughter, off her feet. While it was written in 1928, Threepenny remains relevant for audiences today as a commentary on the plight of the everyman. Such popular and memorable songs as Mac the Knife, Jenny the Pirate, and Solomon’s Song all came from Threepenny, which also inspired other jazz musicals including Cabaret and Chicago.
Riot Act Inc, will transform Walk Festival Hall into a giant celebration of energy and color. Audiences can sing along to favorite jazz standards while supporting local Jackson Hole talent in the process. Threepenny will push the bounds of creativity and be a thought-provoking, fun, smart evening of music and theater.
The Threepenny Opera boasts a rich cast more than 25-strong, including: Andrew Munz, Brian VanHattan, Cady Cox, Cord Renyolds, Donna Nethercott, Gabriel Calzadillas, Heather Best, Jeannie Leary, Jessie Lundeen, Julio Martinez, Kari Hall, Linda Rode, Lindsay Burgess, Lizeth Romero, Lorrie Lee, Lucy Nystrom, Marisa Sullivan, Marius Hanford III, Patrick Nolan, Rhea Lewis, Robin Moore, Sandy Hurkens, Sarah Konrad, Sophia Romero, Stephanie Capps, and Vincentius Stevie.
