Plan-B Theatre Company presents GET UP AGAIN, a comic monologue about bullies and what happens when a weakling stands up. It will tour elementary schools in Salt Lake and Davis Counties as part ofDIFFERENT=AMAZING in the spring of 2014. Featuring Matthew Ivan Bennett (also the playwright) and Stephanie Howell, directed by Kirt Bateman.
Pygmalion Theatre Company will have two segments: 1) WHEN PYGS FLY – Two great tunes sung by folks who would never be cast to sing them in shows and 2) A monologue from MOTHERHOOD OUT LOUD. Utterly unpredictable, MOTHERHOOD OUT LOUD shatters traditional notions about parenthood, unveils its inherent comedy and celebrates the deeply personal truths that span and unite generations.
Repertory Dance Theatre performs For Betty, which was originally choreographed in 1970 by former RDT dancer/choreographer, Bill Evans. With music by Antonio Vivaldi, this joyous piece will be re-constructed and performed on RDT’s fall show Legacy in October.
Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company offers a glimpse into a brand new contemporary dance work choreographed by its new Artistic Director, Daniel Charon. The company’s six formidable dancers will propel themselves into evocative yet ever-dissolving moments as they grapple with the nature of temporary relationships. This piece will premiere in its entirety later this season.
SB Dance performs an excerpt from Of Meat and Marrow, a Rock Opera Dance Circus coming to you this Halloween and featuring live music by Totem and Taboo.
