Announcing Our 2010-2011 Season

The Grand Theatre is pleased to announce the line up for their 2010-2011 season. This five show season includes the 9th annual Messiah, some familiar favorites, and a Utah debut. In additional to their traditional season, Always...Patsy Cline is returning to The Grand Theatre this August and September and features local favorites Camille Van Wagoner and Erica Hansen.

The Grand Theatre has revamped their show run dates to include a third week. Traditionally, The Grand Theatre's show run dates had evening performance for two weeks, excluding Sundays. Now the Grand is adding another week while dropping their Monday and Tuesday performances. "Our patrons have expressed great interest in having more options for performances, specifically toward the end of the week," said Richard Scott, Executive Director of The Grand Theatre. "We've added this extra week of performances along with maintaining our two matinees during the first two weeks of the run."

The Grand Theatre schedule of shows includes:

Delightful, Family Musical based on Charles Dickens’ classic novel
October 6-23, 2010

Oliver!, one of the most beloved musicals and winner of many Tony and Academy awards for the original production and 1968 film, vividly brings to life Dickens’ timeless characters with its ever-popular story of the boy who asked for more.

Featuring such well-known songs as “Food, Glorious Food,” “Consider Yourself,” “Where Is Love?” and “As Long as He Needs Me.”

9th Annual Messiah, A Community Celebration
Handel with a twist
December 10, 11 & 13, 2010

A celebration of the season, where Handel’s Messiah is infused with the sounds of jazz, R&B and gospel.

Join us for this modern holiday tradition, now in its 9th season, which captures the essence of Handel’s most famous work and reinvents it.

The end result is a vibrant and inspiring celebration that must be experienced to be appreciated. It’s Handel like you’ve never heard before!

The Glass Menagerie
Illusions and reality meet in this American theatre classic
January 19 - February 5, 2011

A true classic from one of America’s most prolific playwrights in which the truth is presented in the pleasant disguise of an illusion.

A story that deals with failure, family, fathers, broken promises, and tough decisions people must make.

Watch for our outreach programs in conjunction with the SLCC Humanities Department in celebration of 100 years of Tennessee Williams.

The Marvelous Wonderettes
A cotton-candy colored, non-stop pop musical blast from the past
March 9-26, 2011

A regional premiere of an off-Broadway musical that took New York by storm. Meet the Wonderettes, a doo-wop group with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts and voices to match, while they perform at their 1958 high school prom!

A musical trip down memory lane where we are treated to classic songs such as “Lollipop,” “Mr. Sandman,” “Leader of the Pack,” “Respect,” and many more.

Yeah, we know...the title...But you’re going to love the show!
May 11-28, 2011

Don’t let the name fool you. First an off-Broadway hit and later a Tony-nominated musical, Urinetown is a hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. Praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be, Urinetown catapults the “comedic romp” into the new millennium with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit, and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter.

Always..Patsy Cline
Back by popular demand!
August 10 - September 11, 2010

Join us for an evening of music from one of the most influential, successful and acclaimed female vocalists of the 20th century, Patsy Cline. Featuring local favorites Camille Van Wagoner and Erica Hansen in this return performance of this legendary star.

Throughout the show, you’ll hear a variety of Patsy Cline’s hit songs as they are blended into the heartfelt, true story of rare friendship between Patsy and a devoted fan. If you haven’t seen this production yet, you would be “crazy” to miss it!

Beyond their tradition season shows, The Grand Theatre is also showcasing the Excellence in the Community Concert Series throughout the year, 2nd Annual Utah Battle of the Improvs in September, and Tanner Lecture Series in November.
