Quick Wits Comedy Improv

For 16 years, the Quick Wits Improv Comedy Troupe has been making people laugh with their razor-sharp and lightning-fast hilarity; And now, with a return to one of their favorite locations, The Wits can keep that going for years to come.

Quick Wits takes suggestions from the audience and turns them into comedy sketches. The shows are appropriate for the whole family, and some crowd members will actually join the actors on stage. This makes every show a different experience and unique. The troupe has won several “Best Of” awards and has played shows all over the Western United States.

Planetarium Show

BYU Astronomical Society

Weekly Public Planetarium Shows planetarium shows given by the BYU Astronomical Society are held most Friday nights.

The shows start promptly at 7 and 8 PM.  There is no late admittance. Because it gets very dark in the planetarium, the shows may not be appropriate for some young children. Please keep in mind that it is difficult to leave once the show has begun.

After the shows, the observation deck on the roof will be open, weather permitting, with telescopes set up for the public to look through.

The Planetarium is located in room N465 on the 4th floor of the Eyring Science Center on the BYU Campus in Provo, Utah.
