Hi Everyone,

Oddfellows Playhouse is offering NEAT members half off tickets to
tonight's performance of the Threepenny Opera. The show starts at the
Playhouse on Washington St. at 7:30, but they recommend that you call
to reserve a seat and arrive a half hour early. You can read more
about it below.

This is a great chance to see a show at the North End's own youth
theater. Mention NEAT to get your discounted tickets.

Happy Holidays!

Izzi Greenberg

Director, NEAT

ps. if you couldn't make it to last nigth's holiday party, you were
missed! It was a really fun event. Thanks to the Green Street Arts
Center for allowing NEAT to use its space!

Oddfellows Playhouse Teen Repertory Company presents a mainstage
production of The Threepenny Opera, Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill's
ground-breaking work of musical theater on December 4-20. Directed by
Missy Burmeister, a cast of 20 talented teens from throughout central
Connecticut tells the legendary tale of the notorious criminal and
gentleman, Mack the Knife. A pit band under the direction of Joseph
Getter recreates Weill's innovative music and memorable songs.

A milestone of 20th-century musical theater, /The Threepenny Opera/
first presented in Berlin in 1928 and transformed old-fashioned
operetta forms with a sharp political perspective and the sound of Berlin
cabarets. Oddfellows Teen Repertory Company skillfully interprets
Bertolt Brecht's biting text and Kurt Weill's acid harmonies in this
opera "by and for beggars" that captures the contradictions of man's
existence--love, treachery, betrayal, redemption and improbable

The show has completed one successful weekend and additional
performances are on December 12 & 13, and 19 & 20 at 7:30 pm.
All performances are at Oddfellows Playhouse, 128 Washington Street,
in Middletown, CT. Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for students and
seniors. For more information or reservations, please call (860)
