Tuachan

This summer I have been lucky enough to attend both of the plays at Tuachan in St. George.  My friend Libby's sister works there and gives us free tickets! (Thanks Jessie)  I'll be honest, I hate the heat and I am kind of a complainer.  Tuachan calls itself "Broadway in the Desert"  but I like to refer to it as Broadway in Hell.  I told Libby I would try not to get to ornery.  I did buy me a squirt bottle with a fan which helped a lot. 
We first went to Tarzan.  Tuachan is the only regional theater where you can see this play which is pretty cool.  I thought it was pretty good. Libby wished we were closer so we might go back when we can get better tickets. 
Then a couple weeks later we went to Cats.  I wasn't real excited to see this one because I have heard stuff about it.  We decided that we might as well see one of the most famous Broadway shows since it was right here and who can beat free right?  I didn't dislike it near as much as I thought I would.  I actually didn't dislike it at all.  It is not the best play I have ever seen (That is still Les Miserables on Broadway in New York) but it was good.  The music is excellent and the lady who sang "Memory" is a Grammy nominee and a Tony award winner.  At intermission we were able to go get a picture with the old cat "Old Deuteronomy".  We had just been talking about how the actors survive in the heat wearing those costumes and if perhaps they strapped ice packs to themselves.  Well I was sitting next to him and his side felt cool.  So I asked him.  He said "As a matter of fact I do."  Well I am thinking I might try it next time I go to Tuachan. :)

we were wondering the same thing about the people who dress in hot costumes in vegas (the people who stand on the street all day in the heat to get $1 from people who want to take pics with them).
that sounds like a lot of fun to go there!
