Highland City Arts Council is very pleased and excited to announce our 2015 Theatre season!
Auditions will be held Wednesday, January 7 and Thursday, January 8th from 7-9 pm and Saturday January 10th from 10 am-12 noon at the Highland City Building, Multi-Purpose Room. For questions call Shauna at 801-756-9614.
We will be kicking off the season February 23-28 with the play
Standing, Still Standing. This play by local award-winning playwright Melissa Leilani Larson is a contemporary, humorous love story that moves between the waking world, the online community, and dreams. Standing Still Standing shows the strains chronic fatigue syndrome can put on a man’s life and marriage. This is a comedy about love and life — and staying awake for both. Winner of the 2002 Vera Hinckley Mayhew award, and of an Honorable Mention in Drama from the Association for Mormon Letters. Mel’s 2006 screen adaptation won the LDS Film Festival Screenwriting Contest. We are pleased to announce that Standing Still Standing will be directed by Adam Cannon. Auditions for Standing Still Standing will be the first week in January, January 7th and 8th from 7-9pm and the 10th from 10am to noon.
In March, Highland Youth Shakespeare will present, Admission is $8
The Merchant of Venice. A play by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written between 1596 and 1598. Though classified as a comedy in the First Folio and sharing certain aspects with Shakespeare’s other romantic comedies, the play is perhaps most remembered for its dramatic scenes, and is best known for Shylock and the famous “Hath Not a Jew eyes?” speech. The Merchant of Venice is being directed by Ellen Burns who directed The Tempest in Highland last year.
In April, Highland kicks off a new partnership with the Cedar Hills Arts Council with a youth production of Annie Jr. This classic story is brought to life on stage through the eyes of children. Annie will be directed by Jordan Long, director of Catholic School Girls.
In June, Highland will co-produce with Cedar Hills the musical Honk! Written by the team that brought us Mary Poppins, Honk is a comedic and touching look at Hans Christian Anderson’s tale, The Ugly Duckling. This Olivier winning Best Musical has roles to include the entire family and will be performed at the Heritage Park Amphitheater in Cedar Hills. We are pleased to announce that Gabriel Spencer, director of the wildly popular production The Diary of Anne Frank last season, will be directing Honk!
The season will end with the classic, Pulitzer prize winning play,
Dancing at Lughnasa. Dancing is set in Ireland’s County Donegal in August 1936, around the festival of Lughnasa, the Celtic harvest festival, in the fictional town of Ballybeg. It is a Memory play told from the point of view of the adult Michael Evans, the narrator. He recounts the summer in his aunts’ cottage when he was seven years old. The play depicts the late summer days when love briefly seems possible for three of the Mundy sisters (Chris, Rose, and Kate) and the family welcomes home the frail elder brother, who has returned from a life as a missionary in Africa. However, as the summer ends, the family foresees the sadness and economic privations under which they will suffer as all hopes fade. The play takes place in early August, around the festival of Lughnasadh, the Celtic harvest festival.
Season tickets will include all 4 shows (Merchant of Venice is free admission) and will cost only $23.50 for adults, and $21.50 for children, students, and seniors. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your season tickets! Only a limited number are available so act quick!
