Opening our 52nd season is the World Premiere of Can I Say Yes to That Dress? by Sarah Shippobotham. Having been workshopped in SLAC’s New Play Sounding Series in 2023, Can I Say Yes to That Dress? is a one-woman show starring professor of acting from the University of Utah, and SLAC jack-of-all-trades, Sarah Shippobotham, who has worked as an actor, director, dialect coach, intimacy coordinator, and now playwright, on our stage. The World Premiere production will play in our downstairs Chapel Theatre from September 27th to October 29th, 2023.
Following soon after, SLAC looks forward to sharing Elephant & Piggie’s “We Are in a Play!” by Mo Willems and Deborah Wicks La Puma. This hilarious and heartfelt Theater for Young Audiences production, one of the crown jewels of our celebrated Title I Arts Education Program, is the next in a long line of our annual holiday season tradition of offering world class theatre especially for youth. Playing from December 1st to 30th, 2023 in the upstairs theater.
Our exceptional subscription season then resumes with You Will Get Sick by Noah Diaz, a Regional Premiere playing from February 7th to March 3rd, 2024. Audiences can look forward to laughing through this imaginative and fantastical deep dive on the complexities of being human; an excellent addition to the variety of diverse and interesting work audiences can only find at Salt Lake Acting Company.
The next play of our new season will be Bald Sisters by Vichet Chum, enjoying its Regional Premiere from April 10th to May 5th, 2024. Following a successful (and extended) World Premiere at the Steppenwolf Theater in Chicago, SLAC is proud to welcome back Vichet Chum, another SLAC alum, in their newer capacity as a celebrated playwright, after his appearance as an actor in the SLAC Playwrights’ Lab.
The season will conclude with the newest iteration of Salt Lake Acting Company’s summer tradition, SLAC’s Summer Show 2024. After our wildly successful 2023 production, only time will tell what brilliance finds its way to our stage for summer 2024! One thing is for sure, you won’t want to miss it.
Casts and creative teams for SLAC’s 52nd Season will be announced at later dates. Season Subscriptions as well as Single Tickets are available now by calling us at 801-363-7522.
