Opening Night – We Made It!

Well, we did it. Opening night of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast was a great success–thanks to 42 fantastic actors-singers-dancers and over 45 behind-the-scenes folks that made it all come true. Nearly 90 people pulled off a great show!

It was the largest opening night audience ever–and what a great audience they were! Ticket sales are brisk and moving steadily every day. There are plenty of great seats available–and they’re all great seats because they are all reserved. If folks get on the internet right away–not only will they be able to reserve great seats (favorite seats) but they’ll save $1 per ticket to boot. One can still get great seats at the gate, but with the popularity of this show, chances are much better to reserve them early.

Ten nights to go!

Ticket Sales – Ready to Go!

We are up and ready to go with ticket sales for Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, June 22nd through July 3rd. We’re very happy to announce our relationship with our new ticket vendor, Vendini.

You may purchase tickets through the website at OutlawTrailTheater.com, get them at the Uintah County Heritage Museum, 155 East Main Street or purchase them directly from our Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/OutlawTrailTheater. Look for the “Buy Tickets” tab near the top, right under the banner in the middle–2 spots over from “Timeline”.

Of course, you’ll be able to get tickets at the gate (most likely) if you wait until you get there. Buying tickets in advance will save you $1 per ticket, though–that’s buying them anywhere except at the gate… even on the same day of the event.

You may print your tickets at home or choose “Mobile Delivery” and have them sent straight to your smart device. You can then transfer tickets to friends or family, too. Buying for someone else? That’s no problem either!

Handicap accessible seats are available (this has an outside arm on the chair that may be raised to slide into the seat) with companion seating available beside them. There are also wheelchair spaces available and companion seats reserved by those. You must go through the box office at the amphitheater, though, or call the toll-free number to make arrangements for those (888-240-2080).

Group rates are available for 20 or more tickets–it’s automatic if you buy 20+ tickets either online, at the museum or at the gate.

Projection and Breath Control

HERE is a good article on projection and breath control–something we’re always harping on at the Outlaw Trail Theater. When we go outdoors on our stage, we lose 98% of any reflection we might have gotten from our voice inside. Our voices disappear into the cosmos if we don’t learn how to project them. The microphones are there to help–but they can’t overcome a line said softly. Remember, we also compete with the rodeo arena, overhead aircraft, street traffic, convention center events–all kinds of stuff.

Think about it–and work on it.

First Read/Sing Through

Hey! Everybody that is in the new cast of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast for the summer 2015 Outlaw Trail Theater–tonight is our first read through. Scripts and music will be checked out. Costumers will be measuring folks–all kinds of hubbub will be going on.

Please be ready to sit down and get going at 7 PM–in the Western Park Ice Arena (where you all auditioned). Wear something comfy (and warm). It will be a fun night, getting to know each other and jumping into this wonderful production. Bring a pencil–maybe a notebook. You may want to bring a camp or lawn chair to sit on (the metal Western Park chairs are kinda hard)

If you are not already a member–you may want to join our “Outlaw Trail Theater Cast and Crew” group on Facebook. A lot of info gets around through that channel. We will also talk about other communication channels tonight.
