Upcoming Theatre Productions

Snow College Theatre typically produces five mainstage productions each year. The plays selected are chosen to give our theatre students exposure to a variety of dramatic genres as performers and technicians, to entertain our audiences, and to open the world to our six-county area. In addition to our mainstage productions we present a secondary Black-Box Series each Spring Semester of scenes and plays directed and performed by advanced theatre students.

2021-2022 Theatre Productions

12 Angry Jurors. Directed by Andrew Nogasky, October 6 thru 9, 7:30pm Tickets at www.snow.edu/theatre 435-283-7478
12 Angry Jurors
Directed by Andrew Nogasky
October 6 - 9, 7:30pm

A 19-year-old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. "He doesn't stand a chance," mutters the guard as the 12 jurors are taken into the bleak jury room on one of the hottest days of the year. It looks like an open-and-shut case—until one of the jurors begins opening the others' eyes to the facts. "This is a remarkable thing about democracy," says the foreign-born juror, "that we are notified by mail to come down to this place—and decide on the guilt or innocence of a man; of a man we have not known before. We have nothing to gain or lose by our verdict. We should not make it a personal thing." But personal it does become, with each juror revealing his or her own character as the various testimonies are re-examined, the murder is re-enacted and a new murder threat is born before their eyes! Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and the jurors become 12 angry men and women. The jurors' final verdict and how they reach it—intense scenes that will electrify you and keep you on the edge of your seat.

Radium Girls. Directed by Milinda Weeks, November 10 thru 13, 7:30pm Tickets at www.snow.edu/theatre 435-283-7478
Radium Girls
Directed by Milinda Weeks
November 10 - 13, 7:30pm

In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international celebrity and luminary, watches the latest rage—until the girls who painted them began to fall ill with a mysterious disease. Inspired by a true story, Radium Girls traces the efforts of Grace Fryer, a dial painter, as she fights for what is right and just. Her chief adversary is her former employer, Arthur Roeder, an idealistic man who cannot bring himself to believe that the same element that shrinks tumors could have anything to do with the terrifying rash of illnesses among his employees. As the case goes on, however, Grace finds herself battling not just with the U.S. Radium Corporation, but with her own family and friends, who fear that her campaign for justice will backfire. Written with warmth and humor, and called "powerful" and "engrossing" by critics, Radium Girls offers a wry, unflinching look at the peculiarly American obsessions with health, wealth, and the commercialization of science.

A Tuna Christmas
Directed by Josh Patterson
December 1 4, 7:30pm

It's Christmas in the third-smallest town in Texas. Radio station OKKK news personalities Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie report on various Yuletide activities, including the hot competition in the annual lawn-display contest. In other news, voracious Joe Bob Lipsey’s production of A Christmas Carol is jeopardized by unpaid electric bills. Many colorful Tuna denizens join in the holiday fun from scrappy waitresses to the town snob, the clever entrepreneur of the local gun shop, and a self-proclaimed UFOologist. A Tuna Christmas is a total delight for all seasons, as one critic said, "So funny it could make a raccoon laugh affectionately at Davy Crockett...It's far too good for just Christmas." We hope you will enjoy a laugh-filled evening with all the wonderful oddballs of small town life.

Tuck Everlasting
Directed by Ed Swidey
February 23 - 26, 7:30pm

What would you do if you had all eternity? Eleven-year-old Winnie Foster yearns for a life of adventure beyond her white picket fence, but not until she becomes unexpectedly entwined with the Tuck Family does she get more than she could have imagined. When Winnie learns of the magic behind the Tuck’s unending youth, she must fight to protect their secret from those who would do anything for a chance at eternal life. As her adventure unfolds, Winnie faces an extraordinary choice: return to her life, or continue with the Tucks on their infinite journey. Based on best-selling children’s classic by Natalie Babbitt and adapted for the stage by Claudia Shear and Tim Federle, Tuck Everlasting features a soaring score from Chris Miller and Nathan Tysen. We invite your whole family to this magical and lasting treasure.

The Foreigner, Directed by Trent Bean, April 13-16, 7:30pm Tickets at www.snow.edu/theatre 435-283-7478
The Foreigner
Directed by Trent Bean
April 13 - 16, 7:30pm

The scene is a fishing lodge in rural Georgia often visited by “Froggy” LeSueur, a British demolition expert who occasionally runs training sessions at a nearby army base. This time “Froggy” has brought along a friend, a pathologically shy young man named Charlie who is overcome with fear at the thought of making conversation with strangers. So “Froggy,” before departing, tells all assembled that Charlie is from an exotic foreign country and speaks no English. Once alone the fun really begins, as Charlie overhears more than he should—the evil plans of a sinister, two-faced minister and his redneck associate; the fact that the minister’s pretty fiancée is pregnant; and many other damaging revelations made with the thought that Charlie doesn’t understand a word being said. That he does fuels the nonstop hilarity of the play and sets up the wildly funny climax in which things go uproariously awry for the “bad guys,” and the “good guys” emerge triumphant.
