Draper Arts Council Update

The 2015-16 season is nearing the end. We kicked it off last summer with our youth show Alice in Wonderland Jr., followed by the annual Big Band Tribute August 28-29. In October Freaky Friday came back to get you in the mood for Halloween. November brought a classic: Man of La Mancha. In early 2016 we delighted audiences with the well-loved The Music Man, performed at Corner Canyon HS. Our final show of the 2015-16 season will be up at the Amphitheater in June with Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
