2009 Season! New Board Member!

The OHPAA board of directors approved the schedule for the 2009 season last night. We haven't secured the rights to these shows yet, so there's a chance that something might change, but here is the list we approved:

  • William Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew Jan 22 - Feb 9
  • A "Valentines Special" Feb 13-14
  • Guys and Dolls, Feb 27 - Mar 30
  • One Act Play festival, Apr 10 - 18
  • The Big Bad Musical (with an all star grown up cast), May 1-18
  • See How They Run, May 29 - Jun 29
  • Young Performers Theatre, actual show to be announced
  • Once Upon a Mattress, July 31 - August 31
  • Arsenic and Old Lace, Sept 11 - Oct 2
  • Little Shop of Horrors, Oct 16 - Nov 13.
  • A Christmas show to be announced later.

We also approved Babes in Toyland as the replacement for this year's Christmas show.

Other developments from the Board of Directors: Bennion Gardner was unaminously approved as the newest board member, and has accepted the position of Treasurer, replacing Stephen Burton. Bennion brings his experience as a branch manager for Zion's First National Bank to this board postion and will be working to create OHPAA's accounting procedures manual and develop our operating budgets. Bennion also occasionally writes articles for the Magna Times, the Kearns Dispatch, and the West Valley News as "a hobby." Bennion and his wife, Kiera, both residents of Magna.

Steve will remain on the board as an "at large" member, and will continue to be a member of the finance committee. He is stepping down from the role of Treasurer due to increasing time pressures from his other committments.
