Sandy Art Guild’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a Magical Version of this Oft-Told Tale

BATB sandy

By Bridges Sayers

The Sandy Amphitheater, nestled away on a hill, is a treasure chest full of hidden theater gems, and the current treasure is Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. Sandy Arts Guild continued their legacy of wonderful performances with their most recent performance of the classic tale of Belle (Jessica Sundwall) and the Beast (Jayson LeBaron) as they overcome magical spells, impossible circumstances, and ultimately discover that true beauty is found within. With music by the brilliant Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice, and book by Linda Wolverton, this show weaves together the most adored parts of the original movie with some new, exciting moments.

Naturally, the show demands a large production, and Sandy Arts Guild pulls it off with grace and finesse. I was particularly impressed with the Beast. His voice is sheer perfection for the role. His rendition of, “If I Can’t Love Her” is nothing short of magic. LeBaron understands the necessity for both the softer and more powerful parts of the role, and each character decision exceeded my expectations. I have seen this show many times, and I have yet to see a Beast tackle the role with such raw talent. LeBaron left me wishing that the Beast was an even bigger part, because I never wanted him to leave the stage. His relationship with Belle is sweet and expressive. I particularly enjoyed their blossoming romance during the library scene—it is well-paced and delicious to watch. Sundwall, on her own, is a talented dancer. Her performance during, “Be Our Guest” and, “Me” are wonderful. While I did find some of her character choices to be somewhat too forceful, I was awed by Sundwell’s rendition of, “A Change in Me.” At that point, I was sold on her characterization.

Sundwell is complemented wonderfully by her father, Maurice (Nelden Maxfield.) Clearly a seasoned performer, Maxfield tackles the oddball role perfectly. I thoroughly enjoyed his performance during “No Matter What,” and really bought into the relationship between him and Belle. His relationship with Gaston (Russell Maxfield) is similarly rich. There is a solid foundation built between the two characters, which paves the way for a greater understanding of what takes place onstage. Russell Maxfield is wonderful with creating those relationships, particularly with his henchman Lefou (Tommy Kay.) I adored the two of them together, though I suppose I shouldn’t say that about the villains. Gaston grows in his villainy throughout the show in a horrifying yet brilliant manner. We all know a Gaston of our own, and Russell Maxfield does a fantastic job of developing a character you love to hate. Kay brings humor to the scenes with his lovely physicality and his well-chosen voice inflections. The duo is complimented brilliantly by the Silly Girls (Kristi Gowda, Allison Klippel, and Micki Martinez.) The trio of girls are hilarious onstage and really bring energy to all that they do. I found myself laughing aloud at their antics more than once.

While I loved the townsmembers, the castle-dwellers are the clear stars in the show. Aaron and I bickered about who was the best amongst them. Our personal favorite was the natural star, Lumiere (Brandan Ngo.) He does not play Lumiere, he is Lumiere. Ngo understands the role in a way few do. His vocals during “Be Our Guest” are both flawless and enchanting. I particularly loved the consistency and clarity of his accent—it aided his characterization and never disrupted his ability to be understood. Very well paired with Lumiere is the uptight Cogsworth (Kevin Cottam.) Typically a role that is easily forgotten, Cottam brings energy to the role in a way that makes it unforgettable. His relationship with Lumiere is touching, even if it is full of bickering. The duo is complimented wonderfully by Mrs. Potts (JaNae Cottam.) Her vocals during “Beauty and the Beast” are lovely and sweet. I particularly enjoyed her relationship with Chip (Morgan Thompson. CC Keel plays Chip Tuesday, Thursday And Saturday), the youngest actor on stage. JaNae Cottam truly works to facilitate the success of Keel, who is a show stealer in her own. The whole audience couldn’t help but let out a sweet sigh anytime she was onstage. Other notable performances come from Wardrobe (Ashley Shamy) and Babette (Danielle Nielson.) They both nailed their accents and really had fun on stage. Their energy makes them both clear standouts.

Director Laura Lerwill clearly understands the show well. The pacing of the show is wonderful, and though there are natural ups and downs in the script, there is never a dull moment. She is brilliantly paired with Choreographer Marilyn Montgomery. I particularly adored Montgomery’s work during the ensemble scenes, such as “Belle” and “Mob Song.” The sharpness of the ensemble is impressive. Technical Director Steve George does a wonderful job with such a large cast, ensuring that each person can be heard and gets their moment to shine. A clear star in the production staff is Set Designer Ricky Parkinson, who created a stunning, comprehensive set. I was surprised by how elaborate and beautiful it is. Costume designer Karen Chatterton created wonderful costumes for most of the cast, though I found Belle’s dress to be a bit dull for the role. However, her costuming of the Beast, Lumiere, Cogsworth, Mrs. Potts, and Wardrobe are truly gorgeous. The show is accompanied by a very talented live orchestra, led beautifully by Orchestra Manager Anne Puzey. I adore the music of this show, and the orchestra did a phenomenal job with it.

I want to thank the Sandy Arts Guild for being wonderful ambassadors for the arts—every representative I met or spoke with was incredibly kind and helpful. I always appreciate when theater’s show this kind of hospitality for all of their guests.

If you are looking for a fun-filled family night, come join the magic of Sandy Arts Guild as they present Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. This show is perfect for princes and princesses of all ages. If you’re hesitant to see it because you recently saw the live action movie, the stage version is completely different from the movie—and I mean that in the best of ways.

Adventure and Romance Abound in Titus Production Theatre Company’s “The Three Musketeers”

3m1

By Bridges Sayers

Midvale has long been a hub for the performing arts, and that certainly continues to hold true with Titus Production Theatre Co.’s spectacular performance of The Three Musketeers. This original musical, written by Jake Anderson, is based on the novel by Alexandre Dumas. It follows the tale of the eager young D’Artagnan (Christian Shepherd) , who longs to join the King’s Musketeers. However, the drama and intrigue of the time does not allow for his task to be so simple. Rife with thrills, affairs, treachery, and more, the story is far from predictable. Along his journey, D’artagnan discovers the perils of betrayal, the passion of love, and the everlasting bond of friendship. This story, full of heartbreak and joy, adventure and discovery, is one that holds meaning far beyond its years. Anderson, both the playwright and the director of the show, truly captures the essence of the novel. This is the musical’s debut performance, not an easy feat on its own, but the cast and crew performed the show with poise, talent, and honesty far beyond its humble beginnings.

3m33m4

Easily the star of the show is D’artagnan himself. Clearly a seasoned performer, Shepherd launched himself into the role with enthusiasm, talent, and obvious dedication. Aaron and I both remarked about the authenticity of Shepherd—the portrayal never felt forced or unnatural. Rather, Shepherd is D’artagnan. His vocals are flawless, his comedic timing is brilliant, and his energy moves the show along wonderfully. He also pairs beautifully with Constance (Jennica Henderson), another powerhouse on stage. Her rendition of “When the Boy Becomes a Man” is stunningly beautiful. The love between the two is honest and raw, something incredibly difficult to convey through the show.

Other clear standouts are the Musketeers themselves. Athos (Quinn Nielsen) is a delightfully complex character. His voice is smooth and melodic and he holds himself with poise and dignity on stage. Nielsen captures the troubled past of his character with such poignant ease that it takes your breath away. Similarly, Aramis (Anthony Hernandez), is not to be forgotten. His own turmoil is relatable and remarkable, and his vocals are stunning. My personal favorite of the three, though, is Porthos (Josh Astle). Perhaps seemingly less introspective than the others, Astle creates a bold and complex character. His comedic timing sets him apart as an incredible performer, and I couldn’t help but love his character. Though all brilliant on their own, the Musketeers bring magic to the stage when paired together—a brilliant casting choice by Anderson.

Not to be forgotten are several other notable performances among the “good guys.” Planchet (Tanya Rasmussen) is, personally, my favorite woman on stage. Her comedic timing is brilliant and makes the language used very easy to understand. Her vocals are lovely. Rasmussen is incredibly relatable and enjoyable. Similarly, King Louis (Carl Smith) steals your attention when on stage. There is something so honest and interesting about his performance. His relationship with Queen Anne of Austria (Nikki North) is sweet and heartfelt. The two understand how it is to grow to love another and they progress to that point beautifully.

3m53m6

Also brilliant are the villains of the show. Cardinal Richelieu (Stephen Chucay) is heinously evil. There are few characters that are so authentically bad that you shiver when they enter the stage, and Chucay portrays one of them. His performance of “One For All” is so spectacularly terrifying. His smooth voice only adds to the eeriness of the role. Complimented by Milady De Winter (Rossy Thrall) and Rochefort (Michael Thrall), the level of evil in this show is simply stunning. As Rossy Thrall sings, it’s “Good to be Bad,” and I couldn’t agree more.

Finally, the ensemble truly compliments the show. Several standout performances are found with surprisingly brilliant characterizations. Bazin (Kimberly Johnson) and Marie (Brycie Piper) had me in stitches. Their timing and commitment to the role is truly wonderful. The Duchess of Brooksby (Sasha Nugter) is another unforgettable role. Her total humor with the role made it an absolute standout. Also brilliant is the Reverend Mother (Chelsea Tramell) whose performance is so dedicated and lovely. It is rare to see a show where my eyes flock to the ensemble members, and I couldn’t take my eyes off of these lovely performers any time they stepped on the stage.

3m7

Fantastic job to director, Jake Anderson. His work with Aaron Webb and Lorrinda Christensen made for some truly beautiful music, and I definitely haven’t gotten it out of my head—which is bad, because I don’t have a way to listen to it now. The costume team did a fantastic job (Amy Martinez, Emily Landeen, Nyssa DeGrazio, Rachel Rasmussen, Alta High School, Taylorsville High School, Kim Russell). I loved the diversity of the costumes, and all of the bright and bold costuming decisions. The fight choreography (Michael Thrall, cast) is wonderful and engaging, and will leave you on the end of your seat.

If you are looking for a night of adventure, laughter, and brilliant performances, be sure to see Titus Production Theatre Company’s performance of The Three Musketeers. It will be unlike anything you have ever seen before, and I mean that in the best of ways.

Be sure to arrive early, as parking and seating are both limited. Also, bring cash or checks, as they do not accept credit cards. The show runs for about three and a half  hours with two short intermissions, similar to shows at the Shakespeare Festival, so plan in advance for a later night. Also, be cautious when bringing little ones. There is some slight language, though nothing egregious. However, the many deaths and the length of the show could be hard for some young ones. Ultimately, though, there is plenty for them to enjoy and to keep them engaged. We brought Aaron’s younger sister, and she loved the show just as much as we did.

Titus Production Theatre Co. presents The Three Musketeers, an original musical by Jake Anderson.

Performed at the Midvale Performing Arts Center (695 West Center St (7720 South), Midvale, Utah 84047)

The show runs through August 4th at 7:00 PM.

Tickets are $10, and may be purchased at the door. (Be aware, they only accept cash or check for your purchase, but there is an ATM located across the street.)

“Disney’s The Little Mermaid” presented by Herriman Arts Council is Beyond My Wildest Dreams

lm1

By Bridges Sayers

Herriman Arts Council is currently performing Disney’s The Little Mermaid at the W & M Butterfield Park Rosecrest Pavilion in Herriman, Utah. This brilliant musical takes the best parts of the Disney movie, which follows the tale of a young mermaid, Ariel, who falls in love with a human, Prince Eric. With even more beautiful songs, loveable characters, and a heightened sense of authenticity, Disney’s The Little Mermaid has captivated audiences across the world. Naturally, this show is a huge undertaking for any company, and Herriman Arts Council tackled the challenge brilliantly.

Disney’s The Little Mermaid is perfect for an outdoor venue, and therefore is ideally suited for the chosen stage. I have to give a special thank you to the staff of Herriman Arts Council for their amazing hospitality and kindness. My boyfriend, Aaron, and I had both had long days, and coming to this show served as a truly lovely respite. From our very first arrival, we were met with enthusiasm and graciousness. Every person we spoke to was so kind and truly served as a wonderful ambassador for the arts in Utah. Adding in easy parking was just the cherry on top. Even before the show began, I knew I would enjoy the evening. The show itself, though, left both Ariel and myself speechless.

lm2

Ariel (Emily Wells) is a dream come true for the role. She brings such vivacity and authenticity to a role that can often come across as shallow. As the hero of the story, I found myself rooting for her the entire time. Her vocals are perfect for the role, capturing both the innocence and energy of Ariel perfectly. I particularly enjoyed her physicality and facial expressions—they are fun and quirky, and often made me laugh out loud. Emily is the total package as Ariel, and her trusty sidekick Flounder (Bryton Myler) is equally wonderful. Don’t let his age fool you, Bryton is a force to be reckoned with onstage. Aaron and I couldn’t stop gushing about how talented he is. He nails the difficult vocals of “She’s in Love” and incorporats in some fun, incredible tricks of his own. Flounder can sometimes be a forgettable role, but Bryton’s portrayal is a highlight of the show.

Naturally, a fan favorite of the show is Prince Eric (Adam Millington.) Adam beautifully portrays the role, and his vocals during “Her Voice” had me melting in my seat. He shows the conflict and difficulty faced by Prince Eric, something that is often glossed over in other performances. It truly enriches his character development. His relationship with Grimsby (Sean Hyte) is just adorable. You can definitely see the two of them together as the willful boy and the stubborn old man, yet they also capture the love and companionship that exists as the foundation of their relationship. I also thought Adam interacts well with the sailors, who are incredibly fun and talented. It is wonderful to see the Pilot (Geoff Beckstrand) in “Fathom’s Below” as he weaves his story about mermaids, and to see the clearly captivated and entranced crew of the ship. This is a very memorable beginning to the show. Of course, my favorite on-stage relationship has to be Ariel and Eric together. The two of them, particularly during “One Step Closer” are sheer magic. I was sucked right in with a big dopey grin on my face. Any time they were together, I just felt so happy. It was a brilliant casting decision by director Stephen Kerr.

lm3

Another remarkable performance is Triton (Andy Browning.) He captures the stubbornness of King Triton wonderfully, and I found myself invested in his relationship with his daughters. I particularly enjoyed his softer moments—those can be much harder for the role. I am not ashamed to admit that I cried during his beautiful rendition of “If Only-Triton’s Lament” and the stunning quartet “If Only.”

Speaking of “If Only”, we can’t forget the spectacular Sebastian (Barton Sloan.) His pearly whites every time he smiles are the only evidence that he is a dentist. Other than that, he completely pulled me into the underwater realm and convinced me of his status as a crustacean. I was mere seconds from leaping onstage and dancing with the cast during “Under the Sea”—and I definitely giggled a healthy amount, especially during a surprise moment (I won’t ruin the secret, but for several minutes, I definitely acted like a two-year-old.) Barton’s vocals are so lovely and smooth. I particularly enjoyed how he captures and guides the energy of the ensemble. His relationship with Ariel is also touching, and reminded me of what true friendship should be like.

lm4

The Mersisters’ performance is also gorgeous. I truly enjoyed “Daughters of Triton,” but the real show stopper is “She’s in Love.” The song is so much fun—there’s no other way to describe it. Special shout-outs to Aquata (Neena Warburton), Adella (Tianna Maxwell), and Allana (April Kerr) for their particularly amazing characterizations. While all the Mersisters were brilliant, these three were over-the-top spectacular. My eyes were drawn straight to them any time they were onstage.

Naturally, the villain of the show should be someone I hate. However, I found it utterly impossible to hate Ursula (Camille Cook), simply because of how brilliant she is. Her vocals, her physicality, her acting, her storytelling. I could go on and on about how amazing she is. Aaron and I were both gobsmacked when she first opened her mouth to sing—she has that rich, jazzy sound that the part demands. Plus, she oozes confidence in a way that makes her both slimy and stellar. Her performance of “Poor Unfortunate Souls” had me on the edge of my seat. Her sidekicks, Flotsam (Brooklyn Allison) and Jetsam (Tevan McPeak) are so creepy and smooth. Their performance of “Sweet Child” sent shivers down my spine, and I loved their interactions with both each other and Ursula. The trio is a match made in villain heaven.

lm7

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the brilliant Scuttle (Tanner Sumens) as well. He was a personal favorite of both Aaron and I, and brought such joy to the stage during “Positoovity.” He was a delight to watch. We also loved the performance of Chef Louis (Dustin Stout), which is filled with humor and creativity.

Though they are not on the stage, clear stars of the show are the orchestra members. Conducted by Meagan Thorup, the live music is a perfect addition to the show. The orchestra is right on par every single time, and never misses a beat. They deserved the hearty applause they received at the end of the show.

lm6

Additionally, the production staff is brilliant. I was obsessed with the work of costume designer Emily Berbert. Every single piece fits the person perfectly, and also fits the role beautifully. I would say which costumes I loved most, but I honestly can’t pick favorites because they are all so good. I think the pictures above speak for themselves. Another production staff standout is set construction manager Bill Black. The set is truly beautiful, and is also surprisingly complex. The multitude of moving parts is something rarely seen in a community theater, and I highly commend him for his brilliant work. Choreographer Julie Balazs worked wonders with both the small, intimate numbers and the large, energetic songs. I loved her versatility, and the show feels cohesive and enjoyable. I particularly loved the choreography during “Positoovity” and “Positaggity.” Vocal Director Amara Blackburn also did beautifully. The vocals are so incredible, and I was genuinely left speechless at points due to the loveliness of it all. Naturally, director Stephen Kerr is to be highly commended. Never once did the show hit a lull. The pacing is perfect, the decisions with blocking, and casting, and those special little moments are just stellar. Huge kudos to him for tackling an enormous show with such poise and talent.

I am excited to say that Aaron and I will be seeing the show again on Saturday, but this time we will be bringing a few more people with us. That’s how good it is. The ticket price is a steal for all the talent that you’ll get to see, not to mention the sheer enjoyment of the show. I would recommend bringing a seat cushion if you have one, because the seats did get a little bit uncomfortable by the end of the show. I would also recommend coming prepared with some money for their concessions, because the ice cold water and the cool candy bars were a total hit—and also a great price. They also have some adorable Little Mermaid necklaces and jewelry for sale for only $5. Also, bring your camera so you can enjoy the photo opportunity with cast members after the show—I know my boyfriend’s little sister will be dying to take some pictures with Ariel (and so will I!) Finally, arrive early. There’s fun music to listen to before the show begins, and it’s worth it to get a seat close to the front. Luckily, we lived up to the name of Front Row Reviewers Utah, and were seated in the front row. We’ll definitely be there early on Saturday to get those close up seats again.

lm5

I absolutely recommend this show to anyone, young or old, big or small, and anywhere in-between. If you are looking for a night that is pure magic and fun, this is the show for you. As Sebastian says, “Darling it’s better, down where it’s wetter.” If you won’t take it from him—take it from me. “Under the sea” in Herriman is where you want to be.

Peter and the Starcatcher at Magna’s Empress Theatre is full of Hilarity and Magic

Pter and the Startcatcher at The Empress TheatreBy Bridges Sayers

The Empress Theater is currently tackling the brilliant original story: Peter and the Starcatcher. The Tony-award winning musical spins a gorgeous tale of how a young orphan becomes the fantastic Peter Pan. Based on the beloved children’s book, Peter and the Starcatchers, by Dave Berry and Ridley Pearson, this musical intertwines hilarious characters, brilliant storytelling, and avid imagination to weave a truly magical story.

Located in Magna, the Empress Theatre has been a staple for all types of theater lovers since its opening in 1916, when it originally served as a Burlesque theater for local miners. Now a far cry from its early beginnings, the Empress Theatre presents brilliant shows for audience members across the state.

When you first pull up to the venue, the lovely façade suggests a bright, fun, energetic atmosphere. The show you find inside definitely does not fall short of these expectations. My boyfriend Aaron and I went to see the show on Friday night, full of excitement and anticipation. I have seen several shows at the Empress Theatre before, and as such, I was thrilled to bring him along to the intimate, enjoyable setting. I knew this show would be perfect for the stage at the Empress, and it certainly was.

From the very beginning, Arielle Strickland (Molly) is a true delight. She sold herself as a precocious, stubborn 13-year-old. Her stage presence is phenomenal, and even when she wasn’t the main focus of the scene, I found my eyes drawn to her. She always exuded the energy and wit necessary for the role, and I thoroughly enjoyed her performance. Her relationship with Kory Koontz (Lord Aster) was wonderful and sweet. I loved the two of them together, though Koontz was also great as a standalone performer.

The Cast of Peter and the StarcatcherAnother clear standout is Anthony Lovato (Black Stache.) His comedic timing was simply brilliant—I was wiping tears from my eyes from laughing so hard at points. His gaudy stache only served to further his lovely characterization. Though Black Stache is the villain of the show, his performance made him the person that you love to hate. I particularly loved his chemistry with the phenomenal Glen Carpenter (Smee.) Aaron and I both agreed that the two of them together were magical—a truly wonderful casting choice by director Michelle Groves.

A surprising show-stealer is Christopher Gallacher (Mrs. Bumbrake/Teacher.) Any time he was on the stage, I couldn’t keep from laughing til my stomach ached. He had excellent comedic timing, and made a usually minor role unforgettable. He and Kaelob Berger (Alf) made a wonderful pair onstage, and their interactions wonderfully complimented the already scripted hilarity. Their performance together was truly spectacular.

The orphan boys together create a wonderful trio of fun, and absolutely embody the characteristics of 13-year-old boys. Jose Hernandez (Ted) is simply delightful to watch, and his never-ending hunger is a fun addition to the show. Dalton Adams (Prentiss) captures the stubbornness and willfulness of a 13-year-old boy so perfectly. The leader of the trio, Garrett Gunnell (Boy/Peter) blossoms beautifully throughout the show. His character arc is pure magic.

Peter and the Starcatcher at The Empress TheatreI have to say, though, that my very favorite person on stage is Madman Madriaga (Grempkin/Mack/Sanchez/Prawn.) You would think that, with so many characters, they would start to blend together. The opposite is actually true. Each character he played was so distinct from the others that it took me several scenes to realize it was the same actor playing them. Even the smallest role, Sanchez, was portrayed so fully. He dedicated himself to each role individually, and brought such fun and enjoyment to them. I particularly loved his facial expressions and physicality. He never held anything back and was a true joy to watch

Overall, the show is truly fun and enjoyable. I was surprised by how much I laughed. Peter and the Starcatcher is known for being very different, and the Empress does an amazing job of highlighting its individuality. Director Michelle Groves does an amazing job of staying true to the uniqueness of the show though bringing in her own twists and turns. Her own imagination is apparent and brought out my own inner child while I watched this delightful production. The creativity used throughout the show was just perfect, and I definitely commend her for leading the cast so strongly through what can be a very complicated show to produce.

Right on par with the creativity is costume designer Karen Chatterton. She captured the essence of the show with her fun, innovative costumes. The mermaid costumes were my absolute favorite and made the show even more magical. Her costumes paired wonderfully with the flawless light design, developed by Tanner Lindsay. The lighting truly complimented the show, and was perfectly cultivated. Huge kudos to Vic Groves for his simple, yet stunning, set design as well. The team came together with a shared vision, and the end result is lovely

If you are looking for something different from what you usually see, or a magical night full of laughs, this show is definitely the one for you.

One thing to note is that I would not recommend this show for younger children. There is a whipping scene in the first act that may be hard for any audience member to watch, but particularly smaller children. Beyond that, there is some slight language, though nothing egregious. The show is rather quick-paced, and as such, might be hard for a younger child to follow. But the expressive storytelling and sheer fun-ness of the show makes it wonderful for older kids, a date night, or a night out with your friends.

I would definitely recommend seeing this show. It is so funny and the characters are simply delightful. I left with a huge grin on my face, and Aaron and I couldn’t agree on who our favorite characters were (there were so many to love). If you’re not ready for the night to end, there is an improv show following the performance. It was a bit of a late night for us, as the show itself ended at around 9:45 PM, but could be very fun for you night owls.

The Empress Theatre presents Peter and the Starcatcher by Rick Elice on July 1st, July 7th, and July 8th at 7:30 PM with 2:00 PM Matinees on July 1st and July 8th. Tickets are $10 each online, or $12 at the door. The Empress Theatre is located at 9104 W 2700 S, Magna, Utah 84044.
