Indie Ogden Review: Peter and The Starcatcher

Want to take your kids to something fun, whimsical and absolutely hilarious? Peter and The Starcatcher, playing at Ziegfeld Theater, is all of that and more. Ziegfeld Theater keeps pumping out hits, from the cast to the set design, and Peter and The Starcatcher is no exception.  Trent Cox as black stash was hilarious and on point even as he rolled with the punches when things didn’t go quite as planned on stage.  Andrew Cole had...

Copper Enameling at Artisan Collective

If you haven’t heard of The Artisan Collective, listen up!   Nestled in the junction next to Megaplex theater, this artist space houses local wares from dozens of local crafters and artisans and to top it off, they have super cheap classes where you can learn everything from sewing to glass blowing! This past week The Ogden Rad Ladies took a copper enameling class (ya, we didn’t know what that was either) and we are all...

Happiness at Ziegfeld Theater

The Ziegfeld Theater’s Production of You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown was delightful! As each character danced, sang, and bantered I couldn’t help but smile.

A couple kids I talked to were huge fans of Lucy and Sally, played by Morgan Parry and...

Holi Festival of Colors in Ogden

With colorful chalk in your hand and live music, it’s nearly impossible not to smile. Ogdenites gathered at Lorrin Farr Park to celebrate spring, even if it didn’t feel that way. The gray clouds helped the colors look even more vibrant! On stage the musicians were praising Ogden for our soul and energy. Besides the music, there were yoga sessions and local food trucks to enjoy. Photo from UtahKrishnas.org Those who had not...

Mr. Marmalade

I first heard about Mr. Marmalade directly from the owner of Good Company Theatre, Alicia Washington.  She gave a presentation at a meeting I attended, going over the history of the theatre and introducing some productions, past and present.  I knew I needed to attend one.  I recently went to another local theater production and jumped at the chance to see Mr. Marmalade. The setting of the play is the living room of four-year old...
