Y'ALL COME AND TAKE A LOOKSEE, PARDNER
It's a dark and stormy night at an old West tavern. A gunshot rings out. A stranger appears. A crime has been committed. And that's just the first few scenes of The Tavern, a hilarious, melodramatic farce playing at the Festival. Take a few minutes and enjoy some of the antics in this video trailer of the Festival's regional premiere adaptation that includes some locations and characters in Utah that just might feel familiar.

Changeover in the Eileen and Allen Anes Studio Theatre.
CHANGEOVER: A HECTIC BALLET
One of the most magical aspects of repertory theatre is the twice-a-day changeover. Lighting, scenery, props, costume, and sound technicians must hurry to change everything from the matinee show to the evening show. It is a fascinating and well-choreographed process. So we filmed it in fast-motion video to let you get an idea of the hectic ballet that happens when changing the scenery in the Anes Studio Theatre from William Shakespeare's Long Lost First Play (abridged) to How to Fight Loneliness.
