THE THREEPENNY OPERA

 

 

Van Duzer Theatre, Arcata, California

 

Directed and Adapted by: Joel Moffett

 

Playwright: Bertolt Brecht

 

 

Presented as a Las Vegas musical extravaganza, our highly stylized production made great use of caricature and metaphor in our attack on the values of modern bourgeois America. Noah Kelly, who was also in my production of Alcestis, starred as Mr. Peachum.

 

The costume design won the top prize at the national ACTF competition that year.
