UTAH VALLEY SPOTLIGHT
December 19, 2014
We have a very unique Christmas Adventure - Fun for the whole family! Come enjoy a lighted riverboat ride on the lower Provo River. It is like a hayride, but a boat ride. There are thousands of lights reflecting off the water, Holiday scenes along the shore, and Christmas music on the boat. Santa even comes to visit on his canoe. We have two professional excursion boats that can accommodate 40 people per ride. Since the boats are uncovered, blankets and warm clothes are encouraged. The ride is a round trip experience that takes 25 minutes, with departures every 30 minutes, on the hour and half-hour. For more information call our Cruise Event Line at 373-1897.
Bring your family to the North Pole! While you're there enjoy hot cocoa with Mrs. Claus, riding the North Pole Express, and taking pictures with Santa.
Hale Center Theater Orem…
No Christmas Season is complete without the hoopla of family dinners, glorious games, magical mistletoe, caroling carolers, firkins of wassail, and Dickens' timeless characters that embody Christmas cheer: Bob Cratchit, Mr. Scrooge, three Christmas ghosts, and of course, Tiny Tim. Whether you have seen it once, fifty times, or never, Hale Center Theater in Orem invites you to be their guests for an evening as you escape all the noise, commercialism, and greed that have invaded this time of year so you can remember what the season is all about.
The play Joyful Noise opens in the Brinton Black Box Theater at the Covey Center on Thursday, Dec. 4. This play, by Utah playwright Tim Slover, provides the perfect companion to the traditional holiday favorite, Handel's "Messiah." It examines how composer George Frederick Handel struggles to write a new masterpiece since his last "blasphemous" opera flopped, causing him to fall out of favor with King George II. Joyful Noise is a play about redemption. It's a smart, well-written play replete with interesting characters, humor, and grand emotion. Everyone in the play has in some way been "damaged" and through their interactions with Handel's "Messiah," they find redemption. Back by popular demand at the Covey Center, this holiday favorite played last year to sold-out audiences. Directed by David Hanson, this timeless piece is not to be missed. Let your holiday traditions begin with Joyful Noise, running December 4-20 at 7:30PM. Tickets are $14, $12. Post Show discussions with cast and crew follow all Thursday performances.
