The Uintah Arts Council’s Outlaw Trail Theater is proud and excited to announce their 2017 summer shows! Yes, we said shows (plural)!
First of all, we are keeping with tradition by producing a musical… the incomparable Singin’ In the Rain! This show will be directed and choreographed by Taunia Wheeler with music director Brian Litton. The show will run June 19th thru July 1st. Auditions will be held in early-mid April and rehearsals will start May 1st.
Along with the musical, we will also be producing a fun-filled melodrama… Showtime On the Showboat or… Don’t Throw Garbage In the River! The melodrama will be directed by Jake Harrison! “Showtime” will run a few performances during the Uintah County Fair and again on Wednesday nights, June 21st and 28th, during the musical. Auditions for the melodrama will be held at the end of April and rehearsals, again, will begin in the first week of May.
A few things, first, check your promotions folder or junk mail if you didn’t receive the meeting invitation already sent.
Second, The Library in the large conference room has wonderful artwork and photography featuring Lori Burchinal, Jay Stocks, Deena Millecam, Susan Dart, and two other artists work. They are hosting an Open House on Monday, November 14 at 7:00 PM. Hope to see you all there!
Third, a reminder that we will be presenting our Uintah Mountain Artist group, our intentions and goals to the Chamber of Commerce at their luncheon on Tuesday, November 15 at noon at the Golden Corral. If you want to show 1 or 2 pieces of work be there by 11:30, and bring your own easel. You can buy lunch if you’d like but it’s not necessary.
Fourth, our next meeting is Wednesday, November 16. I know…busy busy busy! Creative people tend to be busy people…true?
And think on this….we need someone to oversee the “Trees for Charity Event” Artwork will be displayed in the back foyer, and the UBOC Christmas concert also wants artwork displayed that Saturday, Dec. 3rd and someone needs to oversee that Event, Be prepared to volunteer! We’ll talk about these needs on Wednesday…
Our 20th Annual Juried Photo Shootout is ready to show! The photos were all hung over the weekend… and judged. There are lots of very, very fine photos.
If you’re interested in the awards… there will be a reception (free) for the photographers, their families and friends and the public on Thursday, October 13th from 6:30 p.m. until about 7:30 p.m. Awards will be announced at 7 p.m., and the results will be posted on this website and on our Facebook pages after Thursday.
You may even cast a ballot for your very favorite photo while you are visiting the museum. (Only one vote per person, please, and every voter must be present in the museum to cast their vote… no proxies)
