OREM — The Diary of Anne Frank remains a staple in modern literature, the personal thoughts and feelings of a young Jewish teenager during the Holocaust striking and resounding against a backdrop of Nazi facism. I remember reading the book in high school and being impressed that a simple teenager could have recorded the world while preserving the energy of the around her. The nuances of her storytelling capture a slice of life, not necessarily honed in on the horrors of Nazism, but the day-to-day happenings of her family. A balance of personal and political, her writing manages to serve...Read More

PROVO — I am always curious at the foundation of new theater companies: what niche they seek to fill in their locales and what stories they seek to tell. Most theatre companies are a result of an honest endeavor to bring something new to the masses. Happy Accidents Theater Company, a brand new troupe to the Utah Valley theatre scene, seeks to perform “honest stories presented in spaces that contribute to the performance and the overall experience of the audience.” And what a punch they packed with A Day in the Death of Joe Egg. The piece is an unconventional one, unusual for...Read More
OREM — There’s something warming in rediscovering an old love, in remembering things once lost. I recall days spent in my youth, curled up with a mug of hot chocolate, and listening to old-time radio shows like Fathers Knows Best, complete with little advertisement jingles for Ovaltine, and family-centric melodrama. Voice actors with a caricatured charm acted out stories that lulled me off to sleep. These were the quintessentially happy moments of my childhood; the carefree, comforting charm of listening to radio shows eclipsed many alternatives. From the first moment I entered the theater to see You Can’t Take It With You,...Read More
OREM — Victor Hugo‘s episodic story of revolution, love, and redemption takes the stage once more in the Hale Center Theater’s production of Les Misérables. This well-known musical (with music by Claude-Michel Schönberg and lyrics by Alain Boubil, Jean-Marc Natel, and Herber Kretzmer) chronicles the life of convicted criminal Jean Valjean’s life, as he journeys from the depths of his moral crucible into an upstanding life, reflecting his hard-won integrity and desire to return good unto the world. Though tenure and poor treatment in prison threatens to cripple the rest of his life, Valjean is able to overcome his...Read More
Utah County — Pinkalicious Pinkerton loves pink. So much so, that she’s entirely overjoyed when eating one too many pink cupcakes turns her head-to-toe pink. Despite parental warning to stay away from pink foods, the temptation to indulge is simply too great and Pinkalicious finds herself in quite the situation. Doctor Wink provides a solution, but at great cost to Pinkalicious: she must eat only green foods for the next week, and avoid any and all pink foods if she wants to recover from her severe case of pinkititis. However, Pinkalicious loves her pinkness, and breaks the rules, sneaking...Read More
