Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

Time to get your try on

Many say this is a year that should just be cancelled, however, I believe this is a year that can be used...

r First things first, if you like slapstick comedy (Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin), you will love this production of “Noises Off”. Secondly, the sardines were the scene stealer in the first act because you were constantly watching to see where they were, and what trouble they would get into next. This is a hilarious way to spend the evening. You will laugh until you are exhausted.

The director, Connie Warenski, was sitting behind us, and must have noticed that I was constantly laughing. I mentioned to her that I loved the second act, and she told me the third act tied the whole thing up, but I think they could have ended after the second act. It is perfectly choreographed and runs very smoothly. The action with the ax is perfect, and the coordination between the actors was amazing. You need to see it to believe it.

I usually have a favorite character, but not this time. Each character was perfectly portrayed, and the different personalities understood. Starr Williamson, who played Brooke Ashton, made wonderful use of “What!” That response always brought laughter from the crowd. Again, you need to see it to believe it.

My husband, Ed made the comment that he wondered what “Noises Off” was all about. It is about a play rehearsal. Much of the comedy emerges from the subtle variations in each act as character flaws play off each other off-stage to undermine on-stage performance, with a great deal of slapstick.

Ed and I commented that we would go again just to see the second act. Thanks, Springville Playhouse for a wonderful evening.

“Noises Off” can be seen at Merit College Preparatory Academy, 1440 W Center St., Springville on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays through October 7. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the performance starts at 7:30. Tickets are $10 for General Admission and $8 for Students and Seniors.
