Morehead Theatre Guild presents Agatha Christie "Witness for the Prosecution"

Fridays & Saturdays at 7:30 PM and Sundays at 2:00 PM

Rowan County Arts Center, 205 E. Main Stree, Morehead, Kentucky
Mr. Leonard Vole stands accused of murdering a wealthy older widow who has made him her principal heir -- unaware that he was a married man.Things look bad for Leonard's defense.But the final blow comes when his wife agrees to testify, not on Leonard's behalf, but as a witness for the prosecution.All that stands between him and the gallows are the courtroom skills of an aging, but brilliantly wily barrister. The play opened in Great Britain in 1953 to rave reviews and excited audiences. Four years later, it was adapted into a successful film featuring Tyrone Power, Charles Laughton, and Marlene Dietrich. Nominated for six Academy Awards, the film was a solid hit.Audiences were cautioned: “You’ll talk about it, but don’t reveal the ending!" That goes for our audiences, too!

UPIKE School of Dance presents: "The Nutcracker"

5th - 7:30 PM and 7th 2:30 PM

Booth Auditorium (5th floor of Record Memorial Building), UPIKE campus, 147 Sycamore St., Pikeville KY 41501
Celebrate the yuletide season with the magic of "The Nutcracker ballet". See this holiday classic come to life as Herr Drosselmeir turns the nutcracker doll into a handsome prince who will whisk Clara away to a land of snowflakes and sweets ruled by the Sugar Plum Fairy.

The ballet is presented by the University of Pikeville School of Dance and includes more than 120 performers ages seven to adult, including community volunteers.

The University’s first Nutcracker performance debuted in 1978. A highlight of the production was a six-foot Christmas tree that grew to 14-feet and magically collapsed upward before disappearing.

Peggy Davis, artistic director and founder of the dance program, made an appeal for someone to design a new tree during an interview on PikeTV.

“Out of the blue we heard from someone who had been involved in making the original tree,” said Davis. “Kay Chaney of Harold called and offered to make a new one. This is very exciting and we really appreciate her efforts.”

Performances will be held Friday, Dec. 5, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 7, at 2:30 p.m. Both performances will be held in University of Pikeville’s Booth Auditorium, Record Memorial building, level five. Admission is $5. Tickets will be available at the door.

The University of Pikeville School of Dance is under the direction of Conda Little and Davis. For more information, call (606) 218-5751.

A Premier Performance featuring Anthony Clark Evans, 2012 Winner of the Metropolitan National Council Auditions

7:30 pm

Singletary Center for the Arts Recital Hall
Come and meet - or even better - hear THE MAN WHO CAME FROM NOWHERE.

Baritone Anthony Clark Evans, a native of Owensboro, Kentucky, was thrust onto the operatic scene while working as a car salesman in Elizabethtown, KY. Deemed “the man who came from nowhere,” he is a National Winner of the 2012 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. Shortly after this victory, he reached the finals of the Licia Albanese Puccini Competition (which awarded him a career grant and has invited him to perform at the foundation’s Fall Gala in New York), and won First Prize at the Giulio Gari Competition – all within three months.

During his time at Murray State University, he studied voice with Dr. Randall Black and was involved in various ensembles, including concert choir, sax quartet, and drum line. He was a two-time finalist at the Orpheus International Vocal Competition in Mufreesboro,TN, and was an apprentice artist with Arkansas’s Opera in the Ozarks in 2008, where he performed the roles of Marcello in La Bohème and Pish-Tush in Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado. Mr. Evans is married to his college sweetheart, Kim, a middle school teacher. He has left his job selling cars to pursue his operatic career.

Now the heralded baritone will give his first professional recital of his career -- in Lexington He will be joined by sparkplug soprano Julie LaDouceur, winner of the 2011 Alltech Competition. Don't miss this opportunity to say later, "I was there when it all started."

Project SEE Theatre Presents Lanford Wilson’s, BURN THIS

7:30 P.M., 2:00 P.M.

Downtown Arts Center Lexington, KY
Project SEE Theatre is thrilled to announce the second part of their spring tribute to the great playwright Lanford Wilson and the final project of their inaugural season. Burn This has most recently been revived at the Union Square Theatre in NYC in 2002 and the Mark Taper Forum in LA in 2011 and again has brought to mind what a moving story Lanford Wilson first told in 1987 bringing John Malkovitch to fame.
Ben Brantley, New York Times:
Burn This emerges as an exquisitely arranged chamber piece for four self-distancing people who have misplaced their deepest feelings.
The place is a Manhattan loft shared by Anna, a dancer-choreographer, and her two gay roommates—her collaborator, Robbie, who has just been killed in a freak boating accident, and Larry, a world-weary, caustically funny young advertising executive. As the play begins, Anna’s wealthy, well-meaning boyfriend, Burton, a sci-fi screenwriter whose persistent proposals of marriage Anna finds herself unable to accept, is attempting comforting her. Then, with sudden, unexpected explosiveness, Robby's older brother, Pale, bursts on the scene: menacing, profane, dangerous and yet oddly sensitive, Pale is both terrifying and fascinating. The play juxtaposes relationships that derive from the head and those that derive from the gut, and it forces the characters to make a choice; it requires them to face stasis versus change, comfort versus passion; and whether or not a passion that opens up art, creativity, and terrible turbulence is a tenable place to live...
