The Mystery of Edwin Drood @ Noorda Regional Theatre & Heritage High School Performing Arts Center
Jan 29 @ 6:30 pm
The Mystery of Edwin Drood @ Noorda Regional Theatre & Heritage High School Performing Arts Center | Orem | Utah | United States

This wildly warm-hearted musical kicks off when the Music Hall Royale “puts on” its flamboyant rendition of an unfinished Dickens mystery. Edwin Drood disappears mysteriously one stormy Christmas Eve – but has he been murdered? And if so, whodunnit? The giddy playfulness of this play-within-a-play draws the audience toward one of Drood’s most talked-about features, the audience votes on the solution as prelude to the most unusual and hilarious finale!

“You” by graham brown @ Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center
Jan 30 @ 7:00 pm
"You" by graham brown @ Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Directed, choreographed, and written by Graham Brown
Music composed by Michael Wall, Joel Brown, and David Schulman
Starring: Keanu Brady, Mikayla Ellison, Shawnee Jo Haycock, and Jersey Reo Riemo

An immersive and interactive dance-theatre experience that shifts between the nightlife and home lives of four friends as they avoid loneliness amid the crowd

Letter to the audience:
Welcome to You. As our guest, please make yourself at home. Wander, be nosy, open drawers, thumb through diaries. The more curious you are, the more you will discover, just be sure to put things back the way you found them. You will enter a
nightclub, but the environment and point of focus will change around you frequently. Any space not occupied is available to you, providing you do not impede the performers. Feel free to sit on any of the chairs or furniture when not
in use, just be aware that you will eventually need to yield them to the performers. As seating is limited, we ask that priority be given to those of need. Your experience will be most heightened if hands are free so travel light and take advantage of our complimentary coat/bag check upon entrance to the club.

Enjoy!
