Lyric Rep Lines Up Spectacular Summer Shows

By Bryan Stalvey |

LOGAN, Utah — The Lyric Rep’s summer lineup of shows begins this month. Award-winning musicals and plays will range from comedy to mysteries all summer long with multiple showings at three locations on Center Street and USU’s Fine Arts Building.

“Sh-Boom! Life Could Be a Dream” by Roger Bean

Last summer you met The Marvelous Wonderettes when the Crooning Crabcakes couldn’t perform at the prom. Now it’s time to hear from some former Crabcakes. Come back to Springfield to hear your favorite hits from the ‘50s and ‘60s including “Earth Angel,” “Only You,” “Stay,” and “I Only Have Eyes for You.” Go Chipmunks!

“Hay Fever” by Noel Coward

Last produced by the Lyric Rep in 1981, “Hay Fever” is possibly the funniest play Noel Coward ever wrote. Judith and David Bliss and their children Sorel and Simon have each invited guests to join them at their country home for a weekend getaway. What happens next is as hilarious as it is unbelievable.

“Driving Miss Daisy” by Alfred Uhry

Made popular by the Academy Award-winning film starring Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman, this Pulitzer Prize-winning play tells the story of Daisy Werthan and her chauffeur, Hoke Coleburn. You will not want to miss this heartwarming story of friendship conquering prejudice.

“Shear Madness” by Paul Pörtner

“Shear Madness” is finally here. This play has been recommended to us more than any other play in Lyric Rep’s history. At last, we are able to bring it to Cache Valley. Part murder mystery, part farce, part party in a hair salon, this show is a must see for anyone who wants to laugh out loud and literally help us figure out whodunnit.
July 5, 6, 10, 13, 15, 18, 24, 26
