Wasatch Theatre Company begins its 19th season with the regional premiere of the Obie Award-winning play, ‘A Bright New Boise,’ by playwright Samuel D. Hunter. ‘Boise’ is an unexpected dark comedy about faith, family and the importance of making human connections. Most of the action in the play takes place in the break room of a Hobby Lobby craft store in Idaho, where the seemingly innocuous Will applies for a job. No one knows he has recently fled his rural hometown after a scandalous tragedy involving his fundamentalist church. Will doesn’t particularly want to work there but he is a man on a mission – to bond with his estranged son before the impending Rapture. By enlisting the aid of his new co-workers, a group of eccentric characters also struggling to find their way, can Will succeed in winning the trust of his son before the end of the world?
Wasatch’s production is directed by Jim Martin and features Brian Pilling as Will, Sallie Cooper as Pauline, CJ Strong as Alex, Haley Jenkins as Ann, and Gordon Dunn as Leroy. The technical crew includes Danny Dunn (lights), Amy Allred (sound), Linda Eyring (costumes), Daniel Torrence (props), Kit Anderton (set), and Rosemary Fernandez (stage manager).
‘A Bright New Boise’ opens September 1, 2016 and runs Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays through September 17 in the Studio Theatre at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center (138 West 300 South). Show time is 8:00 p.m., with 2:00 p.m. Saturday matinees on September 10 and 17. Tickets are $20.00 and are available through ArtTix (801-355-2787; www.arttix.org).

HOUSE OF APOCALYPSE GALA
Join Us under the last quarter blood moon for the end of the world. Once again we will blow it out with no-holds-barred handcrafted cocktails, bespoke catering, and the best auction ever. We will have burn barrels and meat; proselytizers and fortune-tellers. And there will be all manner of dancing befitting the end of times.
What to wear, what to expect: Get your bomb shelter stocked, then don your tux or your leather, your silk or your scales. Grab your studs, grab your spikes, your motor oil your date your lighter your cat-o-nine tails. Expect: the unexpected. Performers, moments, conversations, sudden appearances of women on Harleys. Fire. Spice. Refinement and surprise.
The auction: We have uncommon auction packages in a rapid-fire format the night of the Apocalypse. Look for trips to Marfa and New York, New Orleans and Tooele. We will have services available from designers, photographers, and future-seeing poets. So many fantastic ways to support NOW-ID in these end times!
