    SANDY — I haven’t seen a Hunt Mysteries production for about a year and a half.  Based on my last experience, I was expecting an interactive show with mediocre talent to accompany my dinner.  Fun, but a bit laborious at times.  Thankfully, that wasn’t the case with this show.  I’m thrilled to say that The […]

    OGDEN — Tucked away amongst a strip of stores on Washington Blvd in South Ogden is a seemingly incongruous addition to the neighborhood.  The storefront is inviting, with bright lights and a welcoming ambiance, and a marquee that proudly proclaims that this is home of the newest member of the local theatre community, the Ziegfeld Theater.  […]

    OGDEN — I grew up watching the movie adaption of Robert Harding’s Steel Magnolias, so I was familiar with the play going into the Ziegfeld Theater’s production. But despite the fact that the movie’s portrayals are what immediately come to mind when I think of each character—Julie Roberts as Shelby, Dolly Parton as Truvy, Sally […]

    OGDEN — The Ziegfeld Theatre shows what good community should look like with its latest production of Spamalot. Though working with a small budget to put on a huge production such as this, the Ziegfeld focused on the story telling and the quality of the acting and performances, which made this an impressive and enjoyable […]

    OGEDN — “Back by Popular Demand” reads the website advertisement for this production, and it is certainly true that Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a very popular musical in Utah.  Having reviewed a production of Joseph just last summer, and having seen and participated in countless productions of the show in the past, […]

    OGDEN — “We love Christmas Carol as much as the next theater, and if the next theater (and the next, and the next . . .) didn’t produce it every single year, we might give it a shot! We’re thrilled to bring something different . . .” That’s the beginning of the online advertisement for Ken […]

    OGDEN — Before the start of the Ziegfeld theater’s Light in the Piazza, the artistic director came on stage and talked a little bit about their mission, which is to raise the bar of community theater quality.  While I can’t say that the bar has necessarily needed to be raised (Utah produces some excellent community theater), […]

    OGDEN — I’ve long felt like a poser in the theater world because (confession time) I’d never seen a Sondheim play. I know. Shameful. So it was with great anticipation I attended Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods at The Ziegfeld Theater. For those unfamiliar with its plot, Into the Woods is a collection of fairy tales […]

    OGDEN — There are times that a show comes along that you think can’t possibly live up to either memories of past productions or of a production that you have seen previously. You can’t imagine that they have the resources, the talent, or the space to really mount a quality production. But every once in a […]

    OGDEN — The popular musical Fiddler on the Roof has been done in many professional, semi-professional, community, and school theaters in the 50 years since its debut on Broadway. The reason for this is quite simple. Though the tale is of a Russian Jewish family in 1905, the morals that encompass the story are quite […]

    OGDEN – In 2013 I reviewed Fairly Potter, a parody that played at the Ziegfeld Theater in Ogden and was written by Rick Rea. For their Christmas show this year, Rick Rea has returned to the Harry Potter Parody and infused it with classic Christmas tales, and a little spoof of some modern tales as […]

    OGDEN — The Ziegfeld Theater has shown with past productions its ability to take on interesting material and make it right for the Ogden audience. This production of La Cage Aux Folles, directed by Morgan Parry, is no exception. La Cage Aux Folles is a Broadway musical with music and lyrics by Jerry Herman and a […]

    OGDEN — The Ziegfeld Theatre‘s production of Dan Goggin‘s Nunsense is the sappy, light-hearted romp you’d expect from the title. The story is ridiculous and simple: after a tragic accidental poisoning of fifty-two of their nuns, the nineteen surviving Little Sisters of Hoboken need burial money for the last of their deceased sisters (whose bodies just happen to […]

    OGDEN — Beauty and the Beast is quite popular right now, with a live action movie having just been released into the theaters. In addition to the original Disney animated film, in 1994 Disney adapted the show for the Broadway stage, adding more songs and changing the story slightly. It is this production, with a script […]

    OGDEN — A Ziegfeld Theater holiday tradition has returned: A Fairly Potter Christmas Carol. Written by Rick Rea, this show is a parody of all things Harry Potter and all things Christmas.  Rea has taken the idea behind the stories of everyone’s favorite wizard boy, combined them with everyone’s favorite gift-giving jolly man, and thrown in […]

    OGDEN — What are the hardworking men of Buffalo to do when the factory shuts down?  It isn’t just an income they’ve lost, as they have been out of work for up to eighteen months.  Individual loss ranges from the abstract ideas of pride and identity to the more concrete repercussions of loss of property […]

    OGDEN — The Ziegfeld Theatre in Ogden has taken on the rock opera The Who’s Tommy, based on the 1969 album of the same name with music and lyrics by Pete Townshend (with additional music and lyrics by John Entwistle and Keith Moon). Having heard some of the music but never seeing a production of this […]
