Outlaw Trail Theater Announcement 2017!

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.

Anyone interested in auditioning should click here, audition/OutlawTrailTheater.com.

Ticket information, etc., will be available here, at OutlawTrailTheater.com.

Follow us here on Facebook, also, to keep up on what’s going on… or we’ll try to keep feeding our Twitter site here.

Four Important Points

Hello Artists,

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

Till we meet again…
