Satisfy your theater bugs this summer with a fantastic season that has something for everyone; OnStage Ogden and Weber State University have both announced their lineups for the 2022-2023 season.

“After the challenges of the past two years, we’re delighted to be back with a great line-up for 22-23,” said James Fredrick, the new managing director of Onstage Ogden.

With 27 performances this year, Onstage Ogden, Weber County’s largest performing arts center, kicks off its 2022-2023 season with a bang with “Patriotic Pops” at Snowbasin Resort over the Independence Day weekend beginning Thursday, June 30.

From classical to mariachi, ballet to hip hop and acrobats, from folk to opera – there is something for every taste.

The season features more performances in downtown Ogden than ever before, including the first presentation at the Ogden Amphitheater with “Jarabe Mexicano” on September 28th. The Portland Cello Project and Utah’s own Repertory Dance Theater will perform at Peery’s Egyptian Theatre, while an eclectic string quartet will perform The Brooklyn Rider and Celtic-crossover ensemble Kittel & Co. will perform at The Monarch.

Subscriptions for four or more shows are available now at OnstageOgden.org, in person at the Onstage Ogden box office at 638 26th St., or by phone at 801-339-9214. Packages start at $62. Individual tickets for most shows go on sale in August.

Weber State University’s Telitha E. Lindquist College of Arts and Humanities is also offering an exciting four-show season, including a world premiere musical inspired by Hans Christen Anderson.

“Season 22-23 explores the choices we make and how those choices change our paths,” said Andrew Barratt Lewis, assistant professor of theater. “These plays and musicals feature complex and nuanced characters striving to make the best of what life throws at them.”

This season is also the final show from costume designer Catherine Zublin, who is retiring after 37 years. Known for her stunning costumes and extensive knowledge of costume history, Zublin will design for the two musicals.
