OREM — The age old battle of the sexes comes to a head in Guys and Dolls, a musical originally premiering in 1950 and finding new stage at Orem’s Hale Center Theater. The classic script by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows is about Nathan Detroit, who stands to make a reaping of cash if he can only find a spot for his illegal floating crap game, a task made difficult by the local strong-armed police force and fiancée Adelaide’s vehement protests that he cease and desist. Few locations exist to host the game, and the only viable lead—The Biltmore Garage,...Read More

OREM — Adapted from the original Disney film, Tarzan: The Musical, brings Edgar Rice Burroughs’s classic coming-of-age story to the outdoor SCERA Shell Theater. In the story, a father and mother find themselves shipwrecked upon the shores of an island off the coast of Africa, and immediately set to constructing a treehouse for their infant son. All goes awry when a leopard attacks and kills the parents, an event mirrored in the local gorilla tribe when this same leopard kills the son of gorillas Kerchak and Kala. Kala finds the human baby and decides to rear it as her own,...Read More
OREM — In November of 2008, a majority of California voters said yes to Proposition 8, a legal redefinition of the state’s constitutional amendment declaring that “only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized.” This decision was met with uproar, same-sex couples and LGBT supporters statewide protesting the validity of such a proposal. The movement quickly spread across the country, proponents of same-sex marriage raising their voices in opposition to Proposition 8. Various court cases both sustained and overturned the resultant amendment of Prop 8, perhaps bringing to the forefront of media the social concerns raised...Read More
OREM — Acting Up!, SCERA’s award-winning musical troupe comprised of high school students, took on the challenge of Gilbert and Sullivan‘s The Pirates of Penzance and oh boy, did they succeed. This comic opera tells the tale of a young pirate apprentice—Frederic—who has recently been released from his servitude to the Pirate King upon meeting his twenty-first birthday. The soft-hearted pirates are sad to see their friend go, though all too eager to send off the boy and his crone of a nursemaid, Ruth. Before leaving, the boy explains to the pirates that their reputation as fearsome buccaneers has dwindled,...Read More
OREM — The Crucible, as penned by Arthur Miller in 1953, is given apt resonance in UVU’s most recent production of this American work. Directed by D. Terry Petrie, I found myself drawn-in and compelled by the production, the various technical aspects working in harmony with the acting and script to provide a chilling and thought provoking evening of theater. Predicated on the events of the Salem witch trials some 300 years previous, The Crucible tells the story of a community gripped by fear and uncertainty. When Abigail Williams is rejected by her former lover John Proctor, the same man...Read More
