Hold onto your hats as CODY BRYANT and the RIDERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE ride in Southern Utah for an encore performance. Mixing laughter, tight harmonies, delightful orchestrations and excellent musicianship. These gifted artists together with the SOUTHWEST SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA, will provide a fast paced experience for a promised evening of unforgettable melodies of cherished songs, and classic western music at its finest. Don’t miss this one!  Campfire yes, sleepy no.
The phrase “Riders of the Purple Sage” is borrowed from the title of a Zane Grey novel published in 1912. In 1932 Jack Dalton put together a band under the name and achieved regional success on KFI radio in Los Angeles. They had two good years then disbanded in 1934. In 1942 Foy Willing put together his own Riders of the Purple Sage for the Hollywood Barn Dance Radio Show, soon achieving national success in films, radio, and live performance. He did over 20 western movies and recorded on four major labels.

In 2003 Sharon Willing urged Cody Bryant to carry on the name and lead a new version of the Riders. Cody and his band perform under the banner today.
Music festivals, corporate retreats, and concert houses thrill to the high energy and enthusiasm the Riders of the Purple Sage bring to every show. They’re fearless in taking their music to new venues and a public that’s largely forgotten Roy Rogers and Gene Autry. Every show proves the magic of the Los Angeles cowboy sound is as powerful today as it was back when they shared the screen with Roy Rogers, Dale Evans and the ever charismatic Monte Hale.

Hairspray at Tuacahn

HairSpray at Tuacahn, near St. George, UT

For more than six years on Broadway and in the popular 2007 film adaptation, Hairspray delighted audiences the world over by transporting them to a candy-colored 1960’s Baltimore, where the 50’s are out—and change is definitely in the air. Now this throw-back to the classic musicals of yesterday comes to Tuacahn for the very first time.

Tracy Turnblad, the loveable plus-size heroine at the center of the story, has an unstoppable passion for dancing, and—much to her delight—she wins a spot on the local TV dance program, “The Corny Collins Show.” Virtually overnight she finds herself transformed from teenage outsider to local celebrity. But can this larger-than-life adolescent manage to defeat the program’s reigning princess, integrate the television show, and find true love (singing and dancing all the while, of course!) without mussing her hair?

Hairspray is a high-energy musical comedy featuring vibrant costumes, toe-tapping music, fabulous dance numbers, and a whole lot of heart. This award-winning musical homage to one of the greatest eras of American music will truly delight old and young alike.
