We are so excited to announce our 2022 season of productions. This year we want to bring the community shows that focus on inclusion and expanding our cast makeups and diversity. Our 2022 season features two musicals, Fun Home and the family classic Annie. Both of which offer challenging roles for adults and children alike. We are also keeping our tradition of doing an outdoor Shakespeare production at the now newly renovated Tooele City Wigwam Amphitheatre during the first weeks of June. We are finishing this season off with A Christmas Carol which will surely be a magical night out for the entire family. On top of the mainstage productions this season, we will also be participating in many smaller community events throughout the year! Keep on eye on our social media pages on how to get involved!
Auditions will be posted as we get a little closer to each production. If you would like to get on our mailing list and volunteer early, fill out this form: https://forms.gle/agWC4kLDXkLiWNnj9
The Broadway Musical
Directed by Chad Henwood
When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Moving between past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s secret life. Fun Home is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.
Please be advised that this production contains mature content and strong language.
Note from the Director
Fun Home is a powerhouse of emotion and thought. It is heartbreaking, intelligent, and sensitive in the matters it discusses. This story is an autobiographical piece but it's themes are extremely relevant to all of us. Accompanied by one of the most beautiful scores in musical theatre, the stories of the Bechdal family help us explore compassion, understanding, healing, identity, family impacts and forgiveness. This is a story that Tooele has not seen on it’s stages and it is very timely and important to be told now. If you have any questions feel free to reach out.
Performances - March 24th - April 2nd
Tooele High School Auditorium
An Outdoor Shakespeare Experience
Directed by Ada Lauren Taylor
A charming young woman proves to be equally charming disguised as a young man, throwing Illyria’s collective love life into wild disarray. Not that the denizens of that town were well-arrayed to begin with. In fact, on an island where everyone’s in love with someone, but no one’s in love with the someone who loves them back, Viola may be just the soul to set them all aright. As Shakespearean comedies go, this is one of the greats; a fun and funny celebration that embraces the insanity of love.
Performances - June 9th - 18th
Tooele City Wigwam Amphitheatre
Directed by Brianna Lyman
Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!
Performances - September 15 - 24 2022
Tooele High School Auditorium
A Christmas Carol
Adapted and Directed by Carol LaForge
Guided by Jacob Marley and the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, and ultimately inspired by his community, Ebenezer Scrooge embarks on a heartwarming journey toward redemption.
