The 2011 Snowy Range Summer Theatre and Dance Festival, presented by the University of Wyoming Department of Theatre and Dance, will feature three full-length plays in June and July.
The festival, established in 2005 as an outgrowth of UW's longstanding summer theatre program and its annual dance festival, opens June 14-18, with Theresa Rebeck's backstage comedy "The Understudy" and continues June 28-July 2, with playwright-in-residence William Missouri Downs' new comedy/drama "Forgiving John Lennon" and July 12-16, with Joan Micklin Silver and Julianne Boyd's musical revue "A ... My Name is Alice."
The Dance Festival Student Showcase Concert (July 27), Dance Festival Gala Concert (July 30) and Vertical Dance at Vedauwoo (Aug. 20-21) conclude the festival.
All theatre performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the UW Fine Arts studio theatre. Both festival dance performances will be in the UW Arts and Sciences auditorium, with the Dance Festival Student Showcase Concert beginning at 7 p.m. and the Dance Festival Gala Concert beginning at 4 p.m. Vertical Dance will be at the Vedauwoo Recreation Area.
Tickets for theatre performances cost $10 for the public, $8 for senior citizens and $5 for students. Tickets for dance are $12 at the door or $10 pre-purchased. Tickets for vertical dance cost $6.50 per person or dog.
