The Uintah Arts Council is proud to present, in concert,
Repertory Dance Theatre!
50 years ago, It was radical when a group of Utah dancers beat out the big city stalwarts to receive a Rockefeller grant establishing RDT as the nation’s first modern dance repertory company. Today, the Company is just as revolutionary as it was in 1966. Founded during a period of social defiance and political unrest, RDT embraces the transformative dance of the early modern masters, and harnesses it to contextualize RDT’s own formative era, as well as the present day. RDT continues to push the boundaries of the art form by commissioning cutting-edge works by new choreographers.
RDT will spend three full days in the community presenting workshops, clinics and lecture demonstrations. You won’t want to miss these marvelous professional dancers!
The Uintah Arts Council’s Outlaw Trail Theater is proud and excited to announce their 2017 summer shows! Yes, we said shows (plural)!
First of all, we are keeping with tradition by producing a musical… the incomparable Singin’ In the Rain! This show will be directed and choreographed by Taunia Wheeler with music director Brian Litton. The show will run June 19th thru July 1st. Auditions will be held in early-mid April and rehearsals will start May 1st.
Along with the musical, we will also be producing a fun-filled melodrama… Showtime On the Showboat or… Don’t Throw Garbage In the River! The melodrama will be directed by Jake Harrison! “Showtime” will run a few performances during the Uintah County Fair and again on Wednesday nights, June 21st and 28th, during the musical. Auditions for the melodrama will be held at the end of April and rehearsals, again, will begin in the first week of May.

The Uintah Arts Council’s Annual Juried Photography Shootout is just a few days away. October 6th and 7th are the days to submit your photos (up to 4) for this year’s contest!
You will only compete with other photographers that are at your same approximate skill level… Amateur, Advanced Amateur, Professional, or Child (under 12).

It’s time to get serious about auditions for Camelot–with only one week to go. But, there’s still plenty of time.
