Arkansas Tech University is concluding the celebration of its 100-year anniversary this weekend. Members of the Arkansas Tech Opera Workshop will participate in the festivities by offering a performance of a comedic operetta that dates back even further than that. Dr. Jon F. Clements, director of the Arkansas Tech Opera Workshop, and an 18-student cast will stage “Trial by Jury” beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 29, at Witherspoon Auditorium. Admission will be free and open to the public. “Trial by Jury” was written by W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan. It was first performed in March 1875 in London, England. Clements said that Friday night’s performance is scheduled to last approximately 45 minutes. Brian Conatser will serve as accompanist.
