Alumni Association Sponsors "Carnival" Dinner-Theatre Oct. 20

Article Body
The University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown Alumni Association will hold a dinner-theatre party for Association members and guests Friday, October 20, on the UPJ campus.

The Pitt Johnstown Alumni Association Dinner-Theatre has fast become one of the group’s most popular events for members and non-members alike.

The evening will begin with registration at 5:30 p.m. in the Living/Learning Center Heritage Hall.  Dinner will be served at 6 p.m. in Heritage Hall.

Following the dinner, the group will attend the 8 p.m. performance of the UPJ Theatre Department’s Fall Term production of Carnival at the Pasquerilla Performing Arts Center Studio Theatre.

The cost of the evening is $30 for each Association member and $35 for each non-member.  Both costs include the dinner and theatre ticket.

Soar in a captivating bubble of delight as Carnival transports you to the Grand Imperial Cirque de Paris, a rundown French circus which has the good fortune of adopting an enchanting waif, Lili, who falls in love with the puppets.  Though she is charmed by Carrot Top, Horrible Henry, Renardo, and Marguerite, the näive Lili doesn’t realize the adorable puppets are each portrayed by Paul, the surly puppet master.  Paul and Lili’s unlikely love affair sings “Love Makes the World Go Round” against the sparkling backdrop of the colorful traveling carnival amid snake charmers, jugglers, freaks, and aerialists.

Reservations are required for the dinner-theatre and may be made by contacting Institutional Advancement, 272 Blackington Hall, by no later than Friday, October 13.  The phone number is 814-269-2080.
