Utah’s Comedy Clubs, Events, Comedians and Venue’s

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.

Utah Shakespearean Festival

The Utah Shakespearean Festival was founded in 1961 and presented its first season in 1962. It was started in response to two influences: summer tourists desiring more evening activities after visiting the area’s six national parks, and a young actor’s desire to produce great theatre. Festival Founder Fred C. Adams, having just come to Cedar City after trying out the New York theatre scene for a few years, was new to the College of Southern Utah (now Southern Utah University) in 1959. However, seeing 150,000 annual summer tourists to the area, he knew he had a great potential audience for a theatre festival. Excited by the idea, he packed up his notes and ideas and visited Ashland, Oregon, the site of the granddaddy of all Shakespeare festivals, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. While there, he closely observed operations and was befriended by Angus Bowmer, the OSF founder, whom Adams interviewed extensively. On the long ride back to Cedar City, the Utah Shakespearean Festival was born.

The Scarlet Pimpernel

Already a well-known and loved as a book (by Baroness Orczy) and a movie (starring Jane Seymour and Anthony Andrews), this musical adaptation of THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL has it all: love, betrayal, humor, political intrigue, and swashbuckling swordplay all intertwined with stunning costuming, incomparable music, and unforgettable lyrics. Join the hilarity and passion to be found in “seeking here and seeking there” for the ever elusive Pimpernel.
