First Annual MiLee Arlene Smedshammer Benefit

July 25, 2010

Benefit NightMiLee Arlene Smedshammer was like a shooting star. Impatiently, she came into her family’s life on her own time schedule. Knowing she had limited time to shine her light and a very important message to share, she greatly impacted many people in her short lifetime. Her little body was not perfect however her attitude and fighting spirit were. And with that she taught us to value what is truly important in life.

The Midvale Main Street Theatre is proud to present:

Glee Performed to Sell-Out Crowds

July 25, 2010

What a fun week this was! Eric Richards and Mindy Pack of Vocal Stages put together and Directed a Glee Summercamp that turned out to be a complete hit! This group rehearsed for a mere 11 days and put together sizzling performances of songs and dances in the style and fashion of the hit show “Glee.” There were 3 performances originally scheduled and a fourth was added the day before the show due to high ticket sales. All performances went to standing-room-only crowds! You can read more about them at Vocal Stages.

Congratulations on a job well done. Thank you for sharing your talent with the Midvale Main Street Theatre. I can’t wait to see what you will do next!

Pristeen Magazine Debut at the Midvale Theatre

July 14, 2010

Wow! This has been a whirlwind…in many ways it seems like Oz. So, let’s catch up!

First of all, we would like to extend a huge thank-you for the patience and flexibility so many of you have extended to us during our times of growth, our happy moments, our sad moments, and our “we have to reschedule this one more time” moments. You have been an awesome group and we are confidently moving forward into bigger and better things.

So here are some things that have happened along the way. We extended our stage so it is deeper, and we created a workable, usable balcony. Our balcony was broken in with the performances of the Main Street Theatre production of Footloose and the Michael Jackson Tribute by The Performer Studio under the direction of Kait Kingston-Eckman, and a fashion show presented by the new Pristeen Magazine.

Miss Utah Teen and Miss UtahWe were chosen by Producer, Dave Tucker, to debut Pristeen Magazine. The first edition, simply called “Teen” was to be released the next week, after which the name will change to Pristeen.

This was truly a night of elegance with a theatre filled with models, producers, directors, and VIP’s galore along with dance troups, live bands, a series of fashion shows, and so much more. At one point the emcee invited people from the audience to step onto the stage if they were interested in being a cover model for Pristeen Magazine, then they chose one to step into that position.

This was certainly a night to remember and we wish Pristeen Magazine amazing success.
