THREADS 2012 producers Laura Czupinski and Jason Gagnon have chosen “Time” as the theme for this year’s show. The designers will be modernizing certain time periods beginning with early Egypt to Futuristic.

“It has been an exciting process seeing the designers use such creativity. When creating the theme, we wanted to make sure it would not limit the designers’ personal style. This year we have made several changes to the production in order to continue to improve upon the show and to offer more opportunities to our peers. We are excited to see the final outcome and are confident that it will provide a wonderful night out for guests.” Czupinski said.

Tickets for the show will be available Monday, March 19 and are $20 for VIP and $12 for general seating. They will be available for purchase at the Event Center box office or online at the Central Michigan box office.
