"Women in Theatre," an evening featuring a panel discussion and performance excerpts, will be held at 8 p.m. tomorrow at the University of Maryland's Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, University Boulevard and Stadium Drive, College Park.

The excerpted works include Chopping by Magde-lena Gomez, in which a Latina-American uses a wardrobe of eccentric clothing to tell the stories of three women who influenced her life; City Water Tunnel #3 by Marty Pottenger, based on interviews with 250 New Yorkers about a new tunnel that will convey water to city residents; and Alva, written by Alva Rogers and Lisa Jones and consisting of songs and monologues on the themes of race and gender, performed by Rogers.

The vignettes will be followed by a discussion moderated by Martha Richards, founder and executive director of The Fund for Women Artists.

Tickets to "Women in Theatre" are $20; $5 for students. Call 301-405-2787.
