The plays I saw in 2013
39 steps - Hale Centre Theatre
The lovely Emily Bell played the only female in this small cast. She was wonderful!
Lend Me a Tenor - Hale Center Theater Orem
We sat on the very front row! The lead looked almost exactly like Rick Moranis.
No Time for Sargeants - Hale Centre Theatre
Cute show. The lead was a really great.
You're a Good Man Charlie Brown - Fort Herriman Middle School
I had several students in the play and so I went to support them. I was glad to finally put the music to some context.
Mid Summer Nights Dream - Fort Herriman Middle School
Supporting students again. They put a fun twist on this one to make it slightly more relatable to middle schoolers and so the kids were all dressed in poodle skirts and leather jackets.
Ragtime - Hale Centre Theatre
Front row seats for a really moving play about life and how it affects different groups of people.
Urinetown - Hale Center Theater Orem
Front row seats that almost got me kicked in the face on several occasions.
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang - Hale Centre Theatre
Ames Bell was such a good Dick Van Dyke.
Peter and the Star Catcher - Shakespeare Festival
So much fun. I love stories with pirates!
Love's Labour's Lost - Shakespeare Festival
A Shakespeare Comedy where the guy doesn't get the girl.
Anything Goes - Shakespeare Festival
Do all sailors tap dance on trans-atlantic voyages?
The Tempest - Shakespeare Festival
Another Shakespeare play I'd never seen before. Why don't more people do this one? Nice message of forgiveness
12 Angry Men- Shakespeare Festival
No intermission, because there are no intermissions during jury deliberations.
King John - Shakespeare Festival
The first of Shakespeare's history plays that I've seen.
Peter Pan - Herriman City Arts Council
I had a couple former students and some neighbors in this production, so Brad and I decided to catch it one night after he got home from work. They did a good job. I'm always impressed by community theater and what they can pull off in a pavilion.
Tarzan - Hale Centre Theatre
Great use of Cirque Du Soleil style vine swinging. Very athletic show.
Thoroughly Modern Milly - Tuachan
I saw this on a girls
weekend with my friend Traci. Great show, Stolworthy's (Grant and
Connie) ended up sitting right behind us and we didn't even notice until
Richard II - Shakespeare Festival Fall show
I know why people don't do the history plays often. Curse the complete the canon initiative! I did enjoy the lecture in the grove with Fred Adams before the show started. I think I would have been totally lost were it not for his summary beforehand.
Brigadoon - Hale Centre Theatre
Emily finally gets to use her Celtic Dancing skills!
Elf - Pioneer Theater Company
6 year anniversary date. I liked the new parts almost better than the direct from the movie parts. It felt like actors just quoting the movie when they were the exact same. I did enjoy the songs and dancing though.
