    • Tue., Nov. 7–Sat., Nov. 11, 7:30 p.m., W.M. Turner Auditorium

    Presented by the School of Theatre (The Mainstage Series)

    In the wake of an electric grid disaster eight strangers struggle for survival in an America without power. Anne Washburn’s Mr. Burns combines nuclear catastrophe, The Simpsons, and the myth making impulse to reinvent contemporary theatre. The play travels more than 80 years into the future as characters journey from entertaining themselves around a fire recounting a half remembered episode of The Simpsons to by the final act performing a post electric musical. The show questions what it means to be human, how we survive tragedy, and why we make art. Tickets: $15 adults, $10 seniors and $7.50 students/youth.

    Single tickets: $15 for adult, $10 for senior, $7.50 for student. Purchase tickets online or by phone: 888.240.ARTS (936.468.6407).

    Orchestra of the Pines: “Scores of Nationalism”
    November 13, 7:30 p.m.

    Symphony No. 2 in D minor, Op. 43 (50 minutes)   Jean Sibelius



    Intermission



    Concerto for two clarinets in E-flat major by Franz Krommer, Gary Jones and Cesar Montelongo, clarinets



    Capriccio Espagnol (15 minutes)   Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov



    Not many works can evoke the sense of pride and nationalist as that of Jean Sibelius. His mighty Second Symphony, while begun in Italy, founds it final penned notes back home in Finland. The profound work intertwines pensive melodies and bold fanfares with lyricism and bravura. The orchestra is joined by guest baritone and concerto/aria winner, Juan Garza, performing an aria of dramatic poise. The orchestra also presents Rimsky-Korsakov’s brilliant Capriccio Espagnol, a concerto for orchestra highlighting soloists throughout the entire work!

    Single tickets: $8 for adult, $6 for senior, $3 for student. Purchase tickets online or by phone: 888.240.ARTS (936.468.6407).
