The Wilbury Theatre Group concludes its 3rd Season as Providence's next professional theatre company with a highly anticipated production of Bertolt Brecht & Kurt Weill's seminal masterpiece musical, The Threepenny Opera.

Under the direction of Artistic Director Josh Short, this dark and hilarious tale of a corrupt society plagued by Capitalism and self-interests follows the notorious criminal Macheath (David Tessier) as he marries Polly (Christine Dickinson), the young daughter of the charismatic Jonathan J. Peachum (Tom Gleadow) leader of the city's beggars and all around bad guy. Turned in by one-time lover turned prostitute Jenny (Karen Carpenter) and forced to elude capture by crooked sheriff Jackie "Tiger" Brown, (Brien Lang), Mac and his gang set off a course of actions that without some divine intervention, are sure to end badly.

The Threepenny Opera runs from May 23 through June 8 at The Wilbury Theatre Group, 393 Broad St., Providence, RI. Tickets:$20-$25; preview performances (May 23-26) just $20. Discounts for seniors and students available. Tickets at 401-400-7100 or
