The College of Performing and Visual Arts would like to invite you to celebrate the legacy and impact Eletra Casadei, an L.A. fashion designer, had on the costume designs of SUU’s Department of Theatre Arts and Dance. A runway fashion show and luncheon will be held from 12-2 p.m. on Nov. 4 in the Southern Utah Museum of Art (SUMA) in honor of her.

Tickets are $25 per person or you may purchase a table for eight for $200. Seating is limited, so it is requested that guests reserve tickets here. All proceeds will help fund the Eletra Casadei Legacy Scholarship which is given to SUU theatre students pursuing costume design.

During the event , attendees will be able to enjoy a fashion runway that will include guests such as Mayor Maile Wilson, SUU’s Executive Director of Brand Strategy Ellen Treanor, Executive Assistant to the Provost Aimee Uchman and more.

Attendees can also engage in a silent auction with different prize awards. Again, the proceeds go to benefit the Eletra Casadei Legacy Scholarship.  

The College of Performing and Visual Arts has asked people who are not able to attend to consider making a donation to support this event and scholarship by going to

or sending a check payable to SUU, address: 351 W University Blvd, Cedar City, UT 84720.

For more information regarding this event, you can visit or call 435-865-8667 for any questions or concerns.
