Spanish theater group to perform

Early spring. An office. A long-suffering secretary and her ill-tempered boss. Dedicated to the firm he's served for more than 20 years, convinced that his life's work in the Lost and Found section is invaluable, Seņor Smith faces a personal crisis when he finds himself unable to comply with the simple request of a client recommended to him by no less than a government minister.

That's the summary of "Una Mariposa Blanca" -- which means "a white butterfly" -- a one-act comedy by Argentine playwright Gabriela Roepke that U.Va.'s Spanish Theater Group will perform March 2-4 at Charlottesville High School's Black Box Theater.

The theater group, a veteran amateur ensemble of faculty and students known for its popular productions of stage dramas in Spanish, will also perform "El Delantal Blanco" (The White Apron), by Sergio Vodanovic of Chile.  U.Va.'s drama department provides technical support to the production.

Spanish department faculty incorporate the plays into their curriculum for upper-level classes. The group will go on tour again this year to other colleges in the region.

Performances will be at 8 p.m. all three nights, and at 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Admission is $5 for students and $7 for the general public. Ticket reservations, which are recommended, may be made at the Spanish department office, 112 Wilson Hall, or by calling 924-7155.
