My theatre group Zion Theatre Company is having its debut performance in Salt Lake City this weekend at the Off Broadway Theater. Itâ€™s a new venue and a new city for us, so weâ€™re very excited. All of our performances previous to this have been in Provo, so Salt Lake is a nice move to the “big city.”
Our first show at the OBT is called Jinn and Other Myths. These three short plays are together by a common thread of mythology, and united by a common multimedia approach:
The mystical Jinn are locked in bottles and their fates are in the hands of a woman named Calypso– but will she consider them too dangerous to release?
Kai has been trapped by the dangerous Snow Queen, and only his childhood friend Gerda can save him… but will Kai want to be saved?
A woman finds herself on a boat, accompanied by a mysterious stranger. Will she be able to accept the new existence put before her, or will her old life be too tempting to give up?
Performances begin at 7 pm. The Off Broadway Theatre is located at 272 South Main Street, Salt Lake City. Tickets are $16 for general audiences, and $12 for students and seniors. Tickets can be purchased at theobt.org or by calling (801)355-4628. Also here’s our 2012 Salt Lake Series at the OBT, for those interested.
