Do you believe in Santa Claus? When Kris Kringle visits Salt Lake City, he’s makes several miracles happen. But when evil doers force him to take part in a competency hearing you’ll find yourself cheering for the jolly old elf and believing in the legend all over again. This comedy parodies Miracle on 34th Street and is fun for the whole family.

Boom

Theatre, Boom, Play, ComedyA quirky, sci-fi, not-so-romantic comedy, boom follows Jo, a female journalism student, and Jules, a male marine biologist, on what appears to be an erotic “casual encounter.” But there’s nothing casual whatsoever about this particular evening. Will meaningless sex have meaning? What’s going on in the fish tank? And who is that woman, Barbara, pulling levers in the corner? Something is about to explode.

In the Chapel Theatre.
