Act Two: BYU and Behind the Scenes: 3/31/24

Alex H -

This week, I was able to fit in some time in between my theater work in order to attend a college tour at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. I actually have a bit of family history with this institution as my dad attended there in his youth. During the tour, I was able to check out a large number of the buildings as well as discussed accessibility options for me if I chose to attend. Below is a picture of the university’s signature “Y” Mountain covered in snow.

Can you spot the “Y?”

During my recent work with Places!, I had the opportunity to work a little more behind the stage. One of the things that I did that was interesting was helping to rig up a crash pad. Utilizing 3 mattresses donated by one of the actor’s families, some of the other cast members and I helped to build the safety pad at the foot of a scaffolding. It’s surprisingly bouncy. In order to see why we need the crash pad, you will have to see the show. There is still time to purchase tickets on their website.

Safety first!

I would also like to announce that my show officially has a date, place and time: April 26th at BASIS at 6 pm, with refreshments to follow. You are all invited, so be on the lookout for more details.
