the tavern

The world premiere of “The Tavern,” a satirical comedy written by the 1930’s most famous song and dance man, George M. Cohan and adapted by Joseph Hanreddy, is certain to be a memorable evening of fun, laughter and edge-of-the-seat anticipation.  The story line tells of the happenings on “one dark and stormy night when a wild wind blows all sorts of oddball characters into a remote Utah tavern—a mysterious vagabond, a damsel in distress, a politician, his daughter, and her fiancé. A thief is on the loose, suspicions abound, and no one is who they seem! Everyone tries to solve the crime, which only multiplies the laughter as this melodramatic farce rolls to its madcap ending.”

Anes Does Shakespeare’s Long First Play

The regional premiere of the highly imaginative, vaudeville-infused William Shakespeare’s Long Lost First Play (Abridged) tells the marginally-true (well, actually not true at all) story of what is claimed to be a long lost manuscript of William Shakespeare’s first play.  Playing on alternating days from July 28 to October 21, this fast, funny and frenzied performance finds a trio of comic actors using their questionable knowledge of The Bard and their street sense to do the convincing.  Audiences in the Eileen and Allen Anes Studio Theater on the campus of Southern Utah University will be delighted with this show’s unadulterated hilarity.
