Salt Lake County’s Zoo, Arts & Parks (ZAP) program is an important funding source for DAC.
We end our season with this delightful comedy rock horror musical that spoofs sci-fi, “B” horror films, and even musical comedy itself. Little Shop of Horrors comes from the songwriting team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, who redefined the animated musical film with Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin. Charming, tuneful and hilarious, with tongue firmly (ahem) planted in cheek, Little Shop of Horrors will be great entertainment for the whole family. Performances will be at the Draper Amphitheater (944 East Vestry Road) on June 6, 7, 9, 13, and 14. Tickets will be for sale at the door and on this website starting May 23.
The 2013-14 season is almost over, capping off with Little Shop of Horrors in June at the Draper Amphitheater. Following is information on upcoming shows in our 2014-15 season.
DAC’s annual tribute to the music of the Big Bands of the 1930s, ’40s, and ’50s will hit the Draper Amphitheater (944 East Vestry Road) August 1 and 2. Expect more hot vocals, slick Lindy-Hoppin’ dances, and jazzy improvisations on the great tunes we all know and love. And bring your dancin’ shoes, because once more we will have a dance floor where you can try out your own moves.
August will also see our fall kids’ show, as 13-year old Edwina Spoonapple takes the stage to instruct her sibling on matters of dancing and singing. The subject matter for her lessons is the letters she gets from the neighbor kids, asking for advice.
Join a large cast of talented kids as they prepare for the Kalamazoo “Advice-a-Palooza Festival,” and learn a lot about themselves along the way.
Performances will be held at Draper Amphitheater (944 East Vestry Road) 8pm on August 21, 22, 23 and 25. Auditions for children ages 7 to 18 will be held 4-6pm Friday 16 May and 9am to noon Saturday 17 May at the Draper Amphitheater.
