The theatrical adaptation of Jane Austin's classic. Adapted by Jon Jory From the novel by Jane Austen Directed by Milinda Weeks
All of the wit and romance of Jane Austen's classic 1813 novel come to life in this refreshingly fast-paced and engaging new adaptation. Finding a husband is hardly Elizabeth Bennet's most urgent priority. But with four sisters, an overzealous match-making mother, and a string of unsuitable suitors, it's difficult to escape the subject. When the independent-minded Elizabeth meets the handsome but enigmatic Mr. Darcy, she is determined not to let her feelings triumph over her own good sense -- but the truth turns out to be slipperier than it seems. In a society where subtle snubs and deceit proliferate, is it possible for Elizabeth and Darcy to look beyond his pride and her prejudice, and to make the best match of all?

It’s the brassy, bright, and promising year of 1959. Boston’s Colonial Theatre is host to the opening night performance of a new musical. When the leading lady mysteriously dies on stage the entire cast and crew are suspects. Enter a local detective, who just happens to be a musical theatre fan!
Considered by many to be the most beautiful opera ever composed, Puccini’s La bohème is full of soaring melodies, love, fun, laughs, and tragedy. The story follows a group of four bohemian artists trying to survive in 19th century Paris and the love affair between one of them, poet Rodolfo and the impoverished (and ill) seamstress Mimì. Director Robert Breault brings his classic staging to Southern Utah in an event that is not to be missed. Former Metropolitan Opera pianist and Dallas Opera Assistant Conductor Rebecca Pacheco will lead the music for a powerful cast. 2019 National Opera Association Artist Award winner Kathryn Grumley will portray the poor seamstress Mimì, tenor David Sauer returns to the role of the poet Rodolfo, after having premiered it in Italy, and Christopher Holmes brings his powerful baritone to the role of Marcello, the painter. Sung in Italian with English translation projected. Arturo Toscanini conducted the first performance of La Bohème on February 1, 1896 at the Teatro Regio in Turin, Italy. The opera was made into a movie in 1965, and the 1996 Broadway musical, “Rent” is loosely based on it. The opera will begin at 7:30pm on October 3rd, 5th, & 11th. Tickets are $30, and $10 for students with current ID.
An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth century London, seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which, he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett's luck sharply shifts when Todd's thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up... and the carnage has only just begun! Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is a musical thriller with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by Hugh Wheeler. The musical is based on the 1973 play Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street by Christopher Bond.

Through this miraculous journey, Edward learns what it is to love, what it is to lose that love, and how to find the courage to love again.
