Way back in August I was assistant directing The Three Musketeers with Barta Heiner http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0374378/ .  While we were waiting to start a run thru, the executive manager of The Covey Center said to me, "Do you want the black box next summer?"  I was stunned and quickly answered "Yes!"

It's not everyday a young director is offered a space and the opportunity to have a public, professional venue and show.

For the next several months, I poured over scripts.  Deep in December, I listened to the song Try to Remember, and inspiration hit.  The Fantasticks.  That was it.  That was my show.  ...How the heck can I do that show?

Much like Matt and Luisa, I feel like my jorney to produce and direct The Fantasticks is always being told "NO!"  I've hit wall after wall, but I am determined and committed to this project.  Auditions are in one week and I want my actors to come into a financially comfortable production.  I don't think local actors are ever paid enough for their work.  I want them to get what they're working for.  They're hard working, qualified actors and they deserve it!  

Help fund this project and support the next generation of theater artists and the arts in Utah!
