Sphinxes and Sweethearts

Sphinxes and Sweethearts, BYU, Brigham Young University, Museum of Peoples and Cultures, Provo, Utah, Utah County, Utah Valley, LDS, Dating Ideas, Games, Food, EducationalNeed to woo your valentine? Bring a date to BYU’s Museum of Peoples and Cultures (MPC) to experience a night of Egyptian culture and cuisine on Friday, February 11th. The Egyptian-themed date night “Sphinxes and Sweethearts” will begin at 7:00 that evening.

“We created this date night as a means to educate participants about ancient Egyptian culture in a relaxed, casual setting,” said Anna McKean, promotions manager at the MPC.

February 11th will be an evening filled with competition, prizes, learning, and food. Couples will have the chance to win prizes through three different activities: a mummy-wrapping race, a set of three different games (Pyramid, Egyptian Balderdash, and “Matching of the Gods”), and painting hieroglyphics. Mediterranean refreshments will also be provided for the couples to enjoy.

“I like ‘Sphinxes and Sweethearts’ because it’s a date night unlike any other,” said McKean. “How often do you hear someone say that they learned to paint hieroglyphics over the weekend?”

Tickets for the date night are $10 per couple and will be available at the WSC Information Desk beginning Monday, February 7th. For more information visit mpc.byu.edu or call 801.422.0020.

BYU Theatre Ballet presents Cinderella

BYU Theatre Ballet will celebrate its 40th year by bringing the popular romance to life with original choreography by artistic director Shani Robison and live accompaniment of Sergei Prokofiev’s magnificent score by the BYU Philharmonic conducted by Kory Katseanes.

BYU Theatre Ballet presents Cinderella, Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah, Utah County, Dance Performance, Valentines, Romantic“The BYU Philharmonic will perform with BYU Theatre Ballet in a full-length ballet for the first time since the 1980s,” said BYU ballet faculty member Lynne Thompson. “That, coupled with beautiful dancing will add to the overall appeal of this classic tale that whisks audiences far away to the land of ‘happily-ever-afters.’ It’s a perfect fit for celebrating Valentine’s Day.”

An exciting addition to “Cinderella” that area royalty won’t want to miss will be the children’s “Prince and Princess Party” that will begin an hour before each performance in the de Jong Concert Hall lobby.

“Children can dress up in their prince and princess costumes to meet Cinderella, Prince Charming, the Fairy Godmother and all of her fairies,” said Thompson. “Parents are welcome to bring cameras to take pictures with the dancers.”

So that all of those princes and princesses can experience the story of Cinderella in a live artistic production, children’s tickets for the performances are half-price. “Exquisite dancing and a delicate portrayal of Cinderella coupled with a strong, convincing Prince promises the success of the production,” said Thompson.

Cinderella and her Prince are portrayed by Megan Conway and Tomas Farnsworth Thursday and Saturday nights, and Jenny Benham and Taylor Stranger Friday evening and at the Saturday matinee. Paige Hollingsworth, Hillary Fullmer, Natalie Sandberg and Kayla Hoover play the comical stepsisters.

The production is a collaborative effort by the College of Fine Arts and Communications funded by the Laycock Center for Collaboration in the Arts Grant and the Mary Lou Fulton Chair Award. Rodger Sorensen, chair of the Theatre and Media Arts Department, has coached the dancers in their character roles, and Kristi Harmon, a Visual Arts Department student, has created the illustrative designs for the production. Set design is by Erin Dinnell with costumes by Marsha Russell.
