Please join us for another great year of art and entertainment amidst the backdrop of Mt. Timpanogos at the Eccles Stage.

The Sundance Summer Theatre is proud to present, in partnership with Utah Valley University, The Fantasticks.

This popular musical centers around two fathers who, in an effort to make their children fall in love, erect a wall between their houses to keep them apart “since children never do what you want them to.” The plot works and the young couple fall in love only to discover their fathers’ scheme.  As a result, the two strike out into the world separately to find their own paths, which eventually lead them back to one another, more worldly wise and mature.

Performances run every Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday night.
Performances begin at 8 p.m.

Arsenic and Old Lace

West Jordan Theater Arts is presenting the classic comedy “Arsenic and Old Lace” at the historic Sugar Factory Playhouse.

Directed by Merrill Dodge, this 1940’s comedy is driven by two aging spinsters, the Brewster sisters (Giselle Airriess and Michelle Groves), who have opened their Victorian home to boarders. As gentlemen inquire about a room, these two sweet ladies offer them a glass of homemade Elderberry wine laced with myriad of deadly delights. Police get involved when Teddy Brewster (Bud Perry), who thinks he’s President Roosevelt, blows his bugle and charges up San Juan Hill, disturbing the neighbors. Evil nephew Jonathon Brewster (Gordon Jones) and his sidekick Dr. Einstein (Sean Buckley) return from prison with a dead body and try to bury him in the basement of the Brewster home.

It seems the only sane Brewster is Mortimer (Bob Bedore), who is engaged to Elaine (Jennifer Mason), but is worried that his roots will betray him, and he’ll become as batty as the rest of the family.

Charlotte’s Web

Matinees on September 19 & 26

The Children’s Literature Association named this “the best American children’s book of the past two hundred years,” and Joseph Robinette, working with the advice of E.B. White, has created a play that captures this work in a thrilling theatrical presentation. All the enchanting characters are here: Wilbur, the irresistible young pig who desperately wants to avoid the butcher; Fern, a girl who understands what animals say to each other; Templeton, the gluttonous rat who can occasionally be talked into a good deed; the Zuckerman family; the Arables; and, most of all, the extraordinary spider, Charlotte, who proves to be “a true friend and a good writer.” Determined to save Wilbur, Charlotte begins her campaign with the “miracle” of her web in which she writes, “Some pig.” It’s the beginning of a victorious campaign which ultimately ends with the now-safe Wilbur doing what is most important to Charlotte. This is a beautiful, knowing play about friendship that will give you an evening of enchantment.
