How to #LoveUTGiveUT on March 31

Each of the past three years we at Plan-B Theatre have been near the top of the #LoveUTGiveUT leaderboard (3rd in 2013, 2nd in 2014, 4th in 2015) for Small Non-Profits. Last year we also won the Best Marketing Campaign. This year we’re not pushing to compete for prizes. We’re just hoping to raise $3,000 toward our 2016/17 season of world premieres by Utah playwrights. Click here to make your contribution by midnight! We are celebrating 25 years of developing and producing unique and socially conscious theatre created by Utah playwrights. In fact, we also open the final world premiere of our 25th anniversary season, KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, on March 31! We share stories with a local point-of-view as well as global stories from a local perspective. We nourish a pool of local playwrights rivaling that found in any other city in the country. We believe the best way to serve our community is to reflect it onstage – to create conversation, to provide an opportunity for patrons to think a little differently, to consider a point-of-view that may have been previously foreign, to listen in a way they may not have before. Hang out online with us today on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to give and be the first to see the announcement of our 2016/17 season at 10am, Noon, 2pm 4pm and 6pm! We also hope that you will support CATALYST Magazine, Davis Arts Council and The David Ross Fetzer Foundation for Emerging... read more

AUDITION NOTICE

We are casting one female actor for the role of Aidan (any age between 30 and 50, any ethnicity, AEA or non-AEA) in the world premiere of NOT ONE DROP by Morag Shepherd as part of our 2016/17 season. NOT ONE DROP (the current winner of the Plan-B Theatre grant from The David Ross Fetzer Foundation for Emerging Artists) is a sideways glance at the roles we play to convince ourselves we are (or aren’t) who we think we are. If Sarah Kane and Caryl Churchill had a baby, this play would be that weird, wacky baby. Rehearsals begin February 28, 2017 with performances March 23-April 2, 2017. Yes, a year from now 🙂 Click here to download the current draft of the script (for reading and audition purposes only). NOT ONE DROP will be directed by Plan-B’s Artistic Director Jerry Rapier. Rowe will be played by Latoya (Rhodes) Cameron; all auditioners will read with her.  Click here to schedule your audition on Saturday, March 5 in the Studio Theatre at the Rose Wagner (you will be asked to upload your headshot and resume as a single PDF document).  Please do not schedule an audition until you have read the play. Once your audition is scheduled, sides and the audition form will be emailed to you. Those called back will be seen again the same day at 2pm. Plan-B pays $300/week for a 5-week contract (3 weeks rehearsal, 2 weeks... read more

The Mayor-Elect and our Trustees share why they are thankful for Plan-B

“I moved to Salt Lake City after college. Around the same time a group of young theatre artists in the city founded Plan-B Theatre Company. The tickets were inexpensive and the quality of the work was high. I went to many of their productions during a time of personal and political self discovery . . .Their productions affected my view of the world around me and my place in it. My commitment to supporting local arts and culture and my belief in the benefit of a strong local arts community stems, in part, from the impact the work of Plan-B has had on me.” – Jackie Biskupski, Mayor-Elect, Salt Lake City “I’m thankful for the opportunities Plan-B provides for local playwrights.” – Trustee Benjamin Brown “I’m thankful for Plan-B because it shares the Utah experience in a very distinctive, engaging way.” – Trustee Rebecca Chavez-Houck “I’m thankful for Plan-B because I know every dollar I give is maximized to produce thought-provoking theatre.” -Trustee Brian Doughty “I’m thankful for Plan-B because it ignites ideas and inspires conversation of those ideas with friends and family.” – Trustee Tami Marquardt “I’m thankful for Plan-B because the stories stay on my mind long after the stage lights go out.” – Trustee Jesse Nix “I’m thankful for Plan-B’s pursuit of the most intelligent, heart-wrenching, funny, thoughtful and refreshing theatre in Salt Lake.” – Trustee Rick Pollock “I’m thankful for Plan-B’s extraordinary commitment to arts in the schools.” – Trustee Kay Shean Donors like you are why we are able to do what we do. As 2015 comes to a rapid close, please consider a year-end gift to Plan-B. Click here to give. Happy new year and see you at the... read more
