Faust
Faust will be performed by the Utah Festival Opera. View the website for more details.

Wealth! Power! Youth! Love! Bored with life, the aging philosopher Faust would give anything to have it all. Enter Mephistopheles with the answer to his prayers - in return for his immortal soul! But when you deal with the devil there is hell to pay, as Faust soon discovers when he finds himself seducing the innocent Marguerite, humiliating the man who cherishes her, killing her brother, and driving her to madness and death. Marguerite's only recourse is to call upon the angels. Will they save her soul or will she join Faust in the burning fires of hell?

Tickets can be purchased online, by phone, or in person at the Utah Festival Opera Box Office in the Dansante Building.

Forever Plaid
Come enjoy a night of entertainment in beautiful Bear Lake! Start the evening off at the famous western cook-out, where you'll enjoy a huge western meal with your choice of rib-eye steak, lemon herb chicken, boneless BBQ pork ribs, or crispy chicken strips. With your belly full, enjoy a live stage production of the heavenly musical hit Forever Plaid in Pickleville's historic log theater. It'll be a night of family entertainment you'll never forget! The season starts June 8th and ends September 8th. See website for dinner and show prices. Special rates are available for groups of 25 or more. Dinner is served at 6:30pm and the show starts at 8pm. Call or visit website for more information.

One of the most wildly popular and requested musicals in Pickleville history, this deliciously goofy revue-style musical centers on the "Plaids," a hilarious four-part harmony group who are killed in a car accident on the way to their first big show. Miraculously they are given one last chance to perform their first (and last) concert before their immanent disappearance into the eternities. With beautiful tight harmonies, a hilariously quirky script, and outlandish choreography performed as only the "Plaids" can do, Forever Plaid is a musical experience that your entire family will love. Screamingly funny, entirely enchanting, and utterly entertaining!

My Fair Lady
My Fair Lady will be performed by the Utah Festival Opera. View the website for more details.

When linguistics professor Henry Higgins meets disheveled Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle outside Covent Garden, he wagers his colleague that within six months he can change Eliza into a proper lady who can pass in high society simply by teaching her to speak proper English. "It’s almost irresistible," he says. "She’s so deliciously low. So horribly dirty." But both professor and pupil begin a transformation that neither of them could have anticipated. Gloriously witty, wise, and winning, My Fair Lady features your favorite songs, "I Could Have Danced All Night," "On the Street Where You Live," "The Rain in Spain," and "I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face." My Fair Lady has been called "the perfect musical" (New York Times).

Tickets can be purchased online, by phone, or in person at the Utah Festival Opera Box Office in the Dansante Buildling.
