The summer season is the biggest tourist season according to Julie Hollist, executive director of the Cache Valley Visitor’s Bureau. She says events that bring the most tourists into the valley will soon be opening their doors and, in fact, tickets for the Utah Festival Opera and Musical Theatre Company went on sale Monday.
“In the past, I think, they’ve had their season tickets, but now you can buy single tickets to all of their events,” says Hollist. “You can get that taken care of while you choose your best seats. Same with the (Old) Lyric (Theater). They’ve got some great shows.
“I know tickets are available for those as well. We just have got great theater going on. We are anticipating, also (hopefully, with fingers crossed) the Utah Theater this summer as well. So we can really define ourselves as the heart of the arts.”
She says that is the way she refers to Cache Valley among her counterparts in the tourist industry. Hollist says you can call 750-0300 for tickets to the Utah Festival Opera and Musical Theatre or pick them up at the Dansante Building at 59 South 100 West in Logan.
For the 2016 season, Utah Festival Opera and Musical Theatre will showcase <em>Ragtime: the Musical</em>, <em>Porgy and Bess</em>, <em>Showboat</em>, <em>Puccini’s Trilogy</em>, and <em>Peter Pan</em>. Meanwhile, the Old Lyric Repertory Company will present <em>Arsenic and Old Lace</em>, <em>Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery</em>, <em>Singin’ in the Rain</em>, and <em>You Can’t Take it With You</em>.
