The flying sequence choreographer is Paul Rubin, "The Fly Guy", who has choreographed some of the most memorable flying sequences from the Tony® Award winning Broadway production of Wicked to Cathy Rigby's Emmy Award winning DVD of PETER PAN.

Pre-show talks, scheduled one half hour before the performance, will be led by Brad Buffum, Production Stage Manager for the Johnny Carson School of Theatre & Film, Karen Wills, Program Coordinator for the UNL University Program Council and Manager of the Nebraska Union Rotunda Gallery, and Kirk Monesmith.
