Magic

July 12, 2012

As the musical director , it has been my privilege to watch RENT come together, without all the stress of directing.

I love working with Tammy Ross. She is creative, generous, and she works with a vision. I am overwhelmed when I come to rehearsal and I see that vision unfolding. I have been trying to articulate the magic of rehearsals as I talk to friends and encourage them to come to see the show–(remember that we open in just one week!) But I can’t describe it. Aaron Ford’s choreography is clean and storied. The set is open and colorful–many thanks to our set painter Ryan Fallis and the set builders–including Joe Dutson.  Everyone who works at Midvale Main Street Theatre brings their heart to the  work. And you can feel it. But that heart starts with Tammy.

It is my privilege to work with her and to see her vision come to life. I took some rehearsal shots this week. the y are not in costume, but I’m hoping that the pictures will convey the magic better than my words.

Tickets are only $15. Live band. Amazing actors. Beautiful story.

RENT–Directed by Tammy Ross

July 19-August 4th Th, F, S 7pm, 2pm on Saturdays

Big Summer Announcements at the Midvale Main Street Theatre!

July 5, 2011

It is Summertime in Utah and we have got some outstanding productions and opportunities coming up for you. First off, our regular group of Quick Wits are continuing their Friday and Saturday night shows at 10:00pm. They are always funny and worth your time…but there’s more! Jason and Russ are going head-to-head (or rather beard to head) in an Ultimate Improv Showdown slated for August. The winner gets amazing bragging rights, the loser has to shave! Yep, the beard or the head depending on who wins!

 

This month, Around the Globe Theatre Company presents William Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” directed by Beth Bruner. The Tempest will run on various dates from July 15-30 of 2011. We are both eager and pleased at the work this company is doing in bringing these great works to life.

 

August brings us Titus Productions under the Direction of Jake Andersen with Peter Pan. You may have seen their Rock Opera of Alice in Wonderland at the Midvale Main Street Theatre last Summer. I’m confident that this will prove to be every bit as delightful.

Last, but certainly not least, we are announcing auditions for Sweeney Todd. They will be held August 23rd at the Midvale Main Street Theatre at 7:30 pm. We invite you to go to our main Midvale Main Street Theatre website for more information on any of the above shows or auditions.

Have a safe and happy summer!
