The USITT Student Chapter at Utah Valley University School of the Arts in Orem, Utah has lots planned for the upcoming semester according to Chair Maddy Ashton.

September 3, the UVU joined the Intermountain Desert Regional Section for a trip to the Utah Shakespeare Festival to tour its facilities and see a few shows.

October 20 to 22, the group will travel to Las Vegas to tour backstage at Cirque du Soleil, see The Beatles LOVE, and hopefully check out the LDI conference happening there at the same time.

December 2 marks the chapter’s first fundraiser, an amateur Drag Beauty Pageant. Many have already volunteered with lighting, stage managing, make-up, and costumes.

About 20 of our members attended USITT 2016 in Salt Lake City.

Many of members were invited to compete at the KCACTF event in Hawaii.
