On Pitch Performing Arts presents Spamalot

Jerusha Abbott is the “Oldest Orphan in the John Grier Home” until a mysterious benefactor decides to send her to college to be educated as a writer. Required to write him a letter once a month, she is never to know the benefactor’s identity – so she invents one for him: Daddy Long Legs.  Although she knows that he will never respond to her letter, she grows more and more fond of this elusive and kindly “old” gentleman.  But another relationship soon begins to develop in Jerusha’s life.  Jervis Pendleton is the well-to-do, “youngish” uncle of one of Jerusha’s roommates, who introduces her to a world of literature, travel and adventure.  Through her correspondence with Daddy Long Legs and her growing intimacy with Jervis, Jerusha’s letters chronicle her emergence as a delightfully independent “New American Woman.”  Yet, there is one startling fact that Jerusha has yet to uncover – a fact that will change her life forever.

Hopebox Theatre presents The Little Mermaid

Beautiful mermaid Ariel should be a happy girl — she lives in an enchanted undersea country, her father is a King, and she has the most beautiful singing voice. But she is a passionate, headstrong teenager, and wants what she cannot have — to live on land. When she falls in love with a handsome human prince, Ariel is more determined than ever to gain a pair of legs. But her only option is to defy her furious father, and bargain with Ursula the Sea Witch, giving her voice as the price of entry onto dry land. With the help of Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull, and officious court composer Sebastian the crab, Ariel must wordlessly gain Prince Eric’s love within three days — or lose her soul to the ambitious witch! Based on the classic Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, and the wildly popular Disney film, this musical staging of The Little Mermaid features a funny and fanciful book by Doug Wright, with the beloved score by Alan Menken, Howard Ashman, and Glenn Slater in an expanded but completely faithful form, featuring the rambunctious and persuasive “Under the Sea,” the romantic expectation of “Kiss the Girl,” and that anthem to longing and belonging, “Part of Your World.”

Where: Hopebox Theatre | Kaysville

When: September 15 – October 7

Hopebox Theatre presents Into the Woods

“Be careful what you wish for” seems to be the ongoing theme in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Brothers Grimm inspired musical, Into the Woods. The story follows The Baker and his wife who wish to have a child, Cinderella who wishes to go to the King’s Festival, and Jack who wishes his cow would give some milk. When the Baker and his wife are visited by the neighborhood witch, who reveals to them that she placed a curse on their family, the two set off on a journey into the woods to reverse the curse. Also in the woods, we meet Little Red, who is trying to visit her grandmother, the Wolf who loves tasty little girls, the Witch’s daughter Rapunzel, and the Princes chasing after their loves. By the end of Act I, everyone has gotten their wish and will seemingly live happily ever after. But in Act II, when Jack’s beanstalk brings them a visit from an angry Giant, we see how the consequences of their actions haunt them in disastrous ways. The community must come together to save each other and their kingdom, but sacrifices must be made.

Did you Know?

Hopebox Theatre creates shows to raise money to help people with cancer who live in the community. At the last show, they take a portion of ticket/concession sales plus what they have raised and give that person a check. Their name goes on a plaque and is put on the lobby wall.

The Improv-ables 

The Improvables perform live, family-friendly improv. Each show is custom-tailored to the audience that night, so you never know what to expect, and neither do they! That’s the fun of improv – they take your suggestions and the things you love to create an unforgettable, never-before-seen, one-of-a-kind comedy experience.

Races & Marathons

Antelope Island 50K

New for this year is that the race will start and finish at the Antelope Island State Park Marina. The event field we have used for years is being turned into another campground for the park, and having the start/finish at the Ranch like last year is too far away logistically.  The good news is that the course will remain the same.  See the course description below for all the deets.

Distance – 50K, how far is that? 50K, oh, you mean in miles, it’s about 31 miles.

Vert – Yep, there is some. Oh, how much? Well, roughly 3900’ of gain.
