From reading my blog, you will know that I am a big fan of The Empress Theatre in Magna. We love the management, the shows and everything else they do there!
Below are some fun upcoming events you need to check out:
EMPRESS IDOL!! -
The Empress is holding their first ever "Empress Idol" singing competition! This is going to be a fun event kicking off with auditions this Monday and competition at the end of the month. Here is the Facebook event link with all the details! https://www.facebook.com/events/618960181505717/
YOUTH THEATRE PROGRAMS AND WORKSHOPS -
Registration is going on now for the highly acclaimed summer youth theatre programs.
This year they have started a new workshop series for young performers called "Music Explorers" for children ages 6-12. This is a new music and theatre based educational curriculum written by a team of local educators! The Spring session "Utah Explorers" is almost complete and the kids will do their performances next week. Summer session (happening in June), "SPACE EXPLORERS", is taking registrations now. The value of this M-F, 3 week program really cannot be beat at just $65!
The extremely popular EYT (Empress Youth Theatre) is back in full swing starting in July with their all day workshop series then the full production of "THE FROG & I", an upbeat musical comedy based on the popular fairy tale "The Frog Prince". This program designed for 12-18 year olds has intensive all day classes along with rehearsing and preparing this full length production which is part of our Empress regular season! The EYT program is another great value priced much lower than other comparable "camp" programs at just $100!
The information about these programs and the link to register can be found on their FB event -https://www.facebook.com/events/231376923724266/ OR on their website at www.EmpressTheatre.com
THE REGIONAL PREMIERE OF THE ADDAMS FAMILY!!
I am not sure if you have seen the change/update to their 2014 season, but they have been awarded the privilege of being the first theatre in the Rocky Mountain region to debut "The Addams Family Musical"! It is fresh off of Broadway and it's National Tour. With this opportunity it required a re-imaging of The Empress 2014 season. They have two amazing casts in rehearsal right now for an extended run. The show will perform 18 times June 20th - July 26th. Tickets, as always, are reserved seating and all seats just $10. After their smash hit "Shrek the Musical" with consistent sell out performances, we encourage people to secure their tickets early for "The Addams Family".
Groups (i.e. Book Clubs, Church groups, Youth groups, etc) can email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in setting up a group with 10 or more seats. This would be a fun show for Corporate or Family Reunion summer outings as well. Generally the group discount is $8 per seat with 10 or more. Many large families come together and take advantage of a group rate!
