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.

DOCUtah, a Southern Utah International Film Festival in its 7th year on and near the campus of Dixie State University, is an independent film-lovers dream!  To select this year’s menu of outstanding festival films, screeners spent several months viewing more than 400 submissions before selecting 62 to run from September 6 – 10, including everything from top-notch educational and entertaining short films to full-length independent movies, each focusing on a wide range of subjects relating to the human experience.  

Playing at a variety of locations around town, films selected for DOCUtah look deeply at current world events, explore quirky habits of interesting men and women; or, look at the resiliency of the human spirit in overcoming hardship as well as life’s social, emotional, or physical difficulties.

This year, according to event organizers, “the festival also includes five additional special screenings of films from the award-winning Independent Film Channel’s series Documentary Now!, hosted by the legendary Helen Mirren.”

According to former football great Phil Tuckett, now DOCUTAH’s Artistic Director and Director of the DSU Film Program, “A small group of individuals went to work to create the inaugural event in September of 2010. Since then we’ve had more than 1,100 films submitted from 70 plus countries and enjoyed meeting many wonderful filmmakers and protagonists. DOCUTAH welcomes the world and at the same time captures the community of Southern Utah and Southern Nevada. DOCUTAH isn’t just a film festival…it’s a five day party with every event not to be missed.”

If you enjoy “a night at the movies” this is certain to be a pleasurable experience to add to your Southern Utah vacation “to do” list.  If a comfortable, affordable vacation home-away-from-home is also on your list, then register today online at St. George Resort Rentals at stgeorgeresortrentals.com  or at laspalmasresortcondos.com for Five Seasons Vacation condominiums.   We can’t wait to meet you … or welcome you back!
