Five photographs. Five playwrights. Five stories that capture different perspectives of the human experience. One weekend only! Wasatch Theatre Company is pleased to present their Annual Page-to-Stage Festival, a showcase of works by local playwrights.
The Page-to-Stage Festival represents Wasatch’s commitment to producing original theatrical work. The centerpiece of the festival has typically been the presentation of Short-Shorts. This year, that tradition is continued with the presentation of ‘Still Lives.’ Local photographers were asked to submit their art to serve as inspiration for a series of short plays. Five pictures were chosen and handed off to the five playwrights selected to write for this years’ program. In addition to the photo, playwrights were given a group of actors to write for and spent months honing their work. Wasatch has invested in some variation of this process for 16 of its 18 years.
The results this year? Five stories that range from the serious to the absurd and that take the audience through a range of emotional experiences.
The production runs for one weekend only, with performances on Thursday, June 16th at 8:00 p.m., Friday, June 17th at 8:00 p.m., and Saturday, June 18th at 1:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. at the Rose Wagner Studio Theatre (138 West 300 South). Tickets are $20.00 and can be purchased at 801-355-2787 or www.arttix.org. Special events surrounding the festival include a reception following the Friday evening performance and a free staged reading of an original play by Beth Bruner (Keep A-Runnin’) Saturday, June 18th at 4:00 p.m. in the Studio Theatre.Visit Event Website for More Info
