The Opera for Those Who Hate Opera next Tuesday and Intramurals Return!

"La Pizza Con Funghi"

Members of the Faulkner Academy of Arts from Conway will be on campus at UACCM on at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 8 to present an evening of music and theater. The event, held in the UACCM Fine Arts Auditorium, is open to UACCM students, employees, and the community and is offered free of charge.

The first half of the program will consist of the group performing a comic opera entitled "La Pizza Con Funghi" (Pizza with Mushrooms). The show is a slapstick comedy that could certainly be billed as “the opera for people who hate opera,” according to UACCM Music Instructor Shannah Cummings, who is also a member of the Faulkner Academy of Arts. “La Pizza Con Funghi” is a famous one-act play about a wife who decides to murder her husband by feeding him a pizza with poison mushrooms. Unfortunately, the wife’s plan is spoiled by her maid in one of the show’s many twists. The second portion of the program will consist of a variety of musical theater pieces taken from Broadway shows throughout the years, designed to please audiences of all ages.

The Faulkner Academy of Arts is a non-profit group which aims to grow the arts in Conway and the surrounding areas and is also the sponsor of Conway Dinner Theater. For more information, contact Shannah Cummings at or at (501) 977-2198.
