BUY TICKETS IN ADVANCE: www.theatreintheraw.ca/tickets

This fall Theatre In the Raw is performing the Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill 1928 classic work THE THREEPENNY OPERA, based on John Gay's The Beggar's Opera under the direction of Jay Hamburger and music director Earle Peach! Brecht and Weill turned to John Gay's 18th-century The Beggar's Opera to fashion this savage, biting commentary on bourgeois capitalism and modern morality.

Set in Victorian London, the bitter tale is told of the predatory outlaw known as Mack the Knife. Through rousing song and intricate song, The Threepenny Opera portrays a society turned upon its head with biting critique, and mysterious characters, and the "Raw edge" from Jay Hamburgers colourful production; a classic work of early 20th century theatre and a landmark in musical theatre brought to Vancouver audiences this Fall at Strathcona's The Russian Hall.

Featuring: Stephen Aberle*, Jenny Andersen*, Martha Elisabeth Ansfield-Scrase, Kevin Armstrong*, Jeff Hoffman, Damon Jang, Danielle Lemon, Ariel Martz-Oberlander, Adam Olgui, Kathleen Nisbet, zi paris, Katie Purych, Stephen Street, and Lindsay Warnock.

Earle Peach Directing the band featuring: Albert Klassen, Kirsten Daub, Johanna Hauser, and Lauren Ollsin.

Choreography: Anna Kuman Stage Manager: Juliette Butler Lighting Design: Chengyan Boon Costume Design: Anne Meeson Props: Jan Janovick

>>> Past Theatre In the Raw Productions

>>> Ongoing Theatre In the Raw Work

Also, we are always in the process of producing series of original One-Act plays as well as considering mounting a production of a classical theatre play or a revived musical.

Our Mythical Voices for Our Time Project has turned into an ongoing five to possibly six year project: There are many good scripts still "sitting on the back burner" that we would like to produce in the future. Additionally we are always looking to produce winning One-Acts from our Biennial Play Writing Contest. These could be produced as Click Jay's Mug to Buy Theatre In the Raw a Virtual Coffee...part of another One-Act Festival or Mini-Tour when time, venue, and finances will allow.

Our continuing original radio play broadcast over Vancouver Co-Op Radio CFRO 102.7FM The Arts Rational program (Thursday nights @ 21:00-22:00) moves forward smashingly. When the opportunity arises we manage to produce a script with an array of bells and whistles, broadcasting it live on air. The pieces are usually 30-40 minutes in length and we look forward to producing more.

We usually alternate new original works with classics that are not often performed. We are currently looking at works by William Saroyan, George S. Kaufman or Bertolt Brecht/Kurt Weill's great musical, The Threepenny Opera, or a Shakespeare drama for the 2015/2016 season and beyond.
