The students of East Hollywood High in West Valley City, probably the most inclusive school in the state, are doing RENT this weekend only. In 1996, this original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway and forever changed the landscape of American theatre. Two decades later, the story continues to speak loudly and defiantly to audiences across generations and all over the world.
Pygmalion Productions and Julie Jensen present Wait, a summer-sizzling new play in the wintertime. In it, Wendy Burger stands on the edge of a summer that will change her life forever.
It’s the summer she moves out of her father’s house (and into a UPS truck). The summer she starts a theatre with the guy she used to date (no one else would have them). The summer she performs her first acting role (Lisa in Hamlet — with a flickering blue light playing the lead, à la Tinkerbell). The summer when she gets tips from the actress, Floating Piñata Head. But most of all it’s the summer when she meets O Vixen My Vixen, who is both beautiful and oh-so-deep. It’s the summer that changes everything in Wendy’s life.
Kicking off its 2019 season, The Ziegfeld Theater is thrilled to bring ABBA’s glittering musical, Mamma Mia!, to Northern Utah.
If your a clueless homo, here’s the synopsis: The winner takes it all. A young girl’s search for her birth father takes an hilarious turn as it brings three men from her mother’s past back to the Greek Island they last visited 20 years ago. This charming trip-down-the-aisle tale is chock full of explosive dance numbers, ABBA’s best hits and non-stop laughs. An Opening Night Gala on Feb. 22, and Feb. 23 is $5 Student Night.
