Jurassic Park City
June 3 – June 25
They’re not really going to put dinosaurs on the stage, are they? Oh yes they are! One of the most requested shows ever done here at the OBT brings to life prehistoric creatures for an adventure park that threatens that fair city to our east… and their lucrative film festival. The fight between heroes and villains trying to sabotage the park results in a hilarious outcome. Have your camera-phones ready—you and your kids will absolutely love the photogenic dinosaurs!
Eric Jensen’s Charlie’s Aunt
August 5 – August 27
One of the funniest plays ever shown at the OBT, this production features mistaken identities, young lovers in need of chaperones, and one ugly guy in a dress. Two young college boys want to court two young girls; but, without a chaperone, they need to enlist the help of their nerdy friend Babs, who impersonates an old widow so well, everyone falls in love with her/ him. Confused? You won’t be when you see this hilarious, side-splitting production. OBT’s hyper-charged take on this classic is the perfect way to warm up your winter.
September 30 – October 29
Does your family like awesome music? Hilarious comedy? Bloodthirsty monsters? Uh, forget that last one… At any rate, they’ll love this comical, Halloween musical revue. Enjoy Dracula, Wolfman, Frankenstein, and Mummy singing tight-harmony songs from the ’60s, ’70s, and today in an effort to escape their endless torment at the OBT in Draper. Halloween shows are always a hit at the OBT, so make your reservation soon. You’ll be glad you dead!
