Press Release for the 2018 Season
Announcing the 2018 Season for the Creekside Theatre Fest in Cedar Hills, Utah
For the first time ever, we are bringing three shows to the beautiful venue at the Creekside this June!
The first is William Shakespeare’s Romantic Comedy, Much Ado About Nothing. We are excited to welcome Director Kris Jennings who will be heading up this timeless classic.
We are also pleased to announce Gabe Spencer, director of The Tempest (2017) and A Midsummer Night’s Dream (2016) will be returning to direct The Giver, adapted by Eric Coble from Lois Lowry’s book.
Finally we are so happy to welcome back Brooke Grant (Oz 2017) to direct a play geared specifically for families and children of all ages, David Mamet’s The Frog Prince. This last show will play at 6:00 in the evening, perfect for families before bed!
