Guys and Dolls is a swinging good time!

Ogden’s Ziegfeld Theater opened their newest production, Guys and Dolls, to a nearly packed house last night. Strains of Sinatra and Louis Armstrong wafted through the air pre-show, creating anticipation in the crowd.

Rock of Ages is Nothin’ But A Good Time

The Ziegfeld Theater’s latest show, Rock of Ages, is a tale familiar to any one who has heard a romantic story: boy meets girl, boy loses girl, girl becomes stripper, boy becomes rock star…   Maybe not that familiar.   What is familiar about this rock and roll fantasy, especially to those of us who lived experienced our youth in the late 80s and early 90s, is the hair-metal music that is the foundation of this hilarious time...

Indie Ogden review: Paul Mitchell School

Like everyone, I’m always looking for a great haircut and a good deal, two things that don’t always go together. Thankfully, the two can meet far more often since Paul Mitchell The School came to Ogden!

The students and faculty are...
