SALT LAKE ACTING COMPANY PRESENTS:
SATURDAY’S VOYEUR 2012: The Mormon Moment
Created by, ALLEN NEVINS and NANCY BORGENICHT
Directed by, CYNTHIA FLEMING
“No question the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is ‘having a moment.”
The Salt Lake Acting Company’s record breaking season will close with the biggest summer party in Utah- SATURDAY’S VOYEUR by Allen Nevins & Nancy Borgenicht, directed by Cynthia Fleming. For 34 years this poignant and upbeat musical satire written for us and about us from scratch every year, has given
a voice. Political. Liberating. Always hilarious. One Voyeur 2011 fan said, “Being at VOYEUR is like watching the clouds part on a grey day.” Utah
SATURDAY’s VOYEUR 2012 comes to you live from downtown SLC. Our Protagonist, Bud ‘
’ Rasmussen narrates his wild fever dream that begins on the pivotal night of Obama’s inauguration in 2009. We are taken through the levels of the Church Office Building, experiencing all the hubbub leading up to 2012- Mitt Romney’s Presidential Nomination, the unveiling of City Creek, and Trax making its way ta’ the airport! We are taken on a journey beneath Moroni Main Street to discover the secrets that dwell in the tunnels that connect downtown’s Church Campus. Through magical means of conveyance we meet our favorite local celebs and take a humorous look at the nation’s fascination with the . LDS Church
In true Voyeur style, through song and dance, we discover…
· What happens when you choose to be a Democrat in the
· What happens to Mormon girls who kiss girls
· Why the Eagle Quorum has so much power on the hill
· Why Mitt Romney’s tithe makes the world go around
· How to be a Latter Day Gay
...and so much more.
This year’s cast features six Voyeur alum (Austin Archer, Alexis Baigue, Steven Fehr, Justin Ivie, Kelsie Jepsen, and Jacob Johnson) and six first-timers (Trent Cox, Trevor Dean, Elena Dern, Lauren Noll, Emilie Starr, and Kalyn West.)
