Sunday in the Park with George

Jan 24, 2019 – Jan 26, 2019

Music & lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, book by James Lapine. One of the most critically-acclaimed and well-respected musicals of all-time will make its Hillcrest debut this January. "Sunday in the Park with George" is one of only a handful of musicals to ever win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. This will also be the first time in over 20 years that Hillcrest has produced one of Stephen Sondheim's musicals. Sondheim is widely considered the greatest musical theatre composer and lyricist of all-time, and "Sunday in the Park with George" is one of his foremost masterpieces. Telling the story of 19th century french artist Georges Seurat in the first act, and then moving forward in time to the 20th century in the second act, this show explores the humanity and struggles of artists as they try to connect to the world around them.

Akhnaton

Mar 14, 2019 – Mar 16, 2019

AKHNATON by Agatha Christie. One of the word's greatest writers takes us to Ancient Egypt in this exciting, thoughtful and suspenseful drama. After years of research, Dame Christie created this tale of deceit, love, and revolution. The story follows the Pharaoh Akhaton, his wife Nefertiti, his son-in-law Tutankhamen, and a myriad of other fascinating characters, as they try to lead Egypt and the world through a turbulent time of change and confusion. This play was written in 1937 but never performed or published during Agatha Christie's lifetime even though it was one of her favorite and best works, because of the extravagance and epic nature of the story and characters. And here it is at Hillcrest in 2019 making its Utah Premiere

Copperfield

May 16, 2019 – May 18, 2019

Based on the novel "David Copperfield" by Charles Dickens, in an original production devised by the company. Charles Dickens has said on multiple occasions that his favorite work that he ever created was his epic novel "David Copperfield." Young David Copperfield grows up in 19th century London surrounded by an incredible cast of characters that range from goofy to tragic to evil to genuinely loving, but they all shape the man that he becomes. This seminal work will now be brought to life in and around the audience in a new and innovative staging that aims at re-telling this amazing story for modern audiences. Patterned after the Royal Shakespeare Company's world-famous production of "The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby," this new work is sure to be an unmissable theatrical event. "Copperfield" will be an immersive show with limited on-stage seating.
