Despite the heat of the summer months, there are still plenty of things the residents of Cache Valley can enjoy right here in their own backyard.
Julie Hollist Terrill, Director of the Cache Valley Visitors Bureau, recommends taking advantage of the arts. “Get inside an air-conditioned theater, and I don’t mean a movie theater. Go to a live performance theatre and see the incredible world-class shows.”
The Lyric Repertory Company offers “six hot shows at three hot venues” this summer, and residents can still enjoy the performances before they finish August 3.
Artistic Director Richie Call said they have had several people say this is the best season. “I had someone the other day tell me they’ve been coming for 23 years and this is the best season they’ve ever seen,” Call said.
Call said their program is doing shows this summer that have never been produced before in Cache Valley. “We’re doing shows that are difficult to see anywhere,” he said.
More details on each show at the Lyric Rep and tickets can be found at lyricrep.org.
The Utah Festival Opera and Musical Theatre also offer six shows on their stage at 59 S 100 W in Logan. Their summer shows are Mary Poppins, Newsies, West Side Story, The Marriage of Figaro, Master Class, and Bravo, Caruso! Tickets start at $16.
The Utah Theatre is home to classic films, live theatre, musical theatre, and much more. Their summer schedule is packed with many different options for all age ranges including their Silent Films series on Monday nights at 7 p.m.
The Logan Tabernacle is holding free “Noon Music at the Tabernacle” concerts that are performed Monday through Friday through mid-August.
Terrill encourages Cache Valley residents to leave their daily grind and enjoy what the valley has to offer. “Take the time to explore the wonderful opportunities that people come from all over the world to experience,” she said.
The Visitor’s Bureau offers free resources and brochures for all different activities and interests. Terrill said their office can help customize an experience you’ll love when you stop by. For more information visit ExploreLogan.com
