A Supercalifragilistic 
Tuacahn Premiere!

Director: Scott S. Anderson
Choreographer: Rommy Sandhu


Mary Poppins is a Walt Disney Theatrical musical based on the similarly titled series of children’s books by P. L. Travers and the 1964 Disney film. The musical features the film’s music and lyrics by the Academy Award winning Sherman Brothers, along with additional music and lyrics by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe that blend in beautifully with the original musical numbers.

 

The stage musical is a fusion of various elements from the film and the books. The practically perfect Mary Poppins arrives to nanny the Banks children and, with some help from the chimney-sweep, Bert, ends up turning the family’s world upside down.

 

Get ready to experience this truly magical and beloved tale in a thrilling new way as only Tuacahn can do it!

If Odyssey Dance Theatre’s “Thriller” isn’t part of your yearly Halloween tradition, it should be. The spooky spectacular combines technical aspects of dance while paying homage to the stars of All Hallows’ Eve.

Throughout the two-hour program, “Thriller” highlights all the heroes of the season, including Frankenstein’s monster and his bride, skeletons, mummies and werewolves. But among the ghouls, you’ll find other unlikely heroes of Halloween, such as Bubbles the Clown and the “Giggle Girl,” who sings and maniacally laughs her way through songs such as “I Saw Mommy Killing Santa Claus.”

Critics agree that Odyssey Dance Theatre is nothing short of spectacular:

“Compelling dance performed to perfection! Young, trim, slim, and athletic…Great fun!” –The Spectrum

“Odyssey’s “Thriller”..a delightful “Dance Macabre”….As for humor, there were bucket loads. Laughs abounded during a “Romeo & Juliet” inspired “Frankenstein & Frankenstein” and “Jason Jam,” a work that used a lot of percussive dancing, a la “Stomp”, that spotlighted three “Friday the 13th” villains dancing with ice picks, machetes and, of all things, chain saws. The whole idea was cool…” — Scott Iwasaki, Deseret News.

Tuacahn’s Indoor Christmas Show – Forever Plaid

 

FOREVER PLAID: PLAID TIDINGS is a brand-new show that offers the best of FOREVER PLAID tied-up in a nifty package with a big Christmas bow on top! Filled with Christmas standards that have all been “Plaid-erized,” our boys are back to do their Christmas Special. 

At first Francis, Jinx, Smudge, and Sparky aren’t sure why they’ve returned to Earth for another posthumous performance, but a phone call from the heavenly Rosemary Clooney lets them know that they’re needed to put a little harmony into a discordant world. Sprinkled among the Christmas offerings are audience favorites like their riotous three minute and eleven second version of “The Ed Sullivan Show” – this time featuring the Rockettes, the Chipmunks and The Vienna Boys Choir, and a Plaid Caribbean Christmas which puts the “Day-O” in Excelsis! This truly “heaven-sent” holiday treat will lift audiences’ spirits and remind youngsters that not all good music has to be auto-tuned. 

Tickets now on sale!

Tuacahns “Spelling Bee” is a S-U-C-C-E-S-S

 

Recently went to Tuacahn’s production of “The 25th Annual Putnam County SPELLING BEE”. It was absolutely enjoyable with a lot of unavoidable, out loud laughter.  The cast brought out their best inner child along with a few poignant moments.  I would see it again in a heartbeat.  Best of all, it is inside the Hafen Theatre so no weather or large crowds to worry about. Get your tickets by ordering your T-U-A-C-A-H-N (Too-ah-khan; n. a great place for theatre, concerts and good times) package today through Best Western Coral Hills. 800-542-7733.  HURRY! The production closes on August 11.

Dixie State College Theater: Boeing, Boeing

BOEING, BOEING

by Marc Camoletti

Adapted by Beverley Cross and Francis Evans 

Winner, 2008 Tony Award, Best Revival of a Play

Newly Revised. 2008 Broadway Revival Edition. 

This 1960′s French farce adapted for the English-speaking stage features self-styled Parisian lothario Bernard, who has French, German and American fiancees, each beautiful airline hostesses with frequent “layovers”. He keeps “one up, one down and one pending” until unexpected schedule changes bring all three to Paris and Bernard’s apartment at the same time.

“This latest edition of a play named for an aircraft soars right out of its time zone and into some unpolluted stratosphere of classic physical comedy. Propelled by the same gusty spirit that animated Commedia dell’Arte and the silent films of Keaton, Chaplin and Lloyd, {this}may be earthy, but it’s seldom earthbound.” - The New York Times

Encore! Brian Regan Returns to Tuacahn

Brian Regan returns to Tuacahn Thursday – Saturday, May 10-12, 2012 8:00pm

Brian Regan Returns to Tuacahn near St. George, UT

American’s favorite comedian returns to Tuacahn by popular demand!

Critics and peers agree: Brian Regan has distinguished himself as one of the premier comedians in the country. The perfect balance of sophisticated writing and physicality, Brian fills theaters nationwide with fervent fans that span generations.

Releasing two critically acclaimed hour Comedy Central specials and DVD’s in as many years–2008′s “The Epitome of Hyperbole,” and 2007′s “Brian Regan Standing Up”–Brian has set a standard of excellence that others continually try to follow.

Brian’s non-stop theater tour has visited more than 80 cities each year since 2005 and continues through 2012. It is the quality of his material, relatable to a wide audience and revered by his peers, which continues to grow Brian’s fan base. In March Brian broke the record for the most consecutive shows by a comedian at Abravanal Hall in Salt Lake City with five sold out performances. The previous record was four shows set by Jerry Seinfeld in 2005.

With his first appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman in 1995, Brian solidified his place on the show and has now made more than 20 appearances. He also includes regular visits with Conan O’Brien on his schedule.

Tickets can be purchased directly with Tuacahn or packaged through Best Western Coral Hills for a discount on your room.

Riders of the Purple Sage at Tuacahn

Riders of The Purple Sage perform at Tuacahn
Riders of The Purple Sage

Thursday, April 26, 2012 8:00pm  $15.50-$24.50

 

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.

Call dirct now for package rates that include the room and show tickets.
