RDT's RING AROUND THE ROSE Welcomes University of Utah Youth Theatre Today
The talented young artists from the University of Utah Youth Theatre program return to Repertory Dance Theatre's "Ring Around the Rose" stage today, March 9, 2013 at 11:00 am. This year they will be paying tribute to the master children's writer, Dr. Seuss.
The young actors (ages 10-18) will be performing a "Smattering of Seuss" in honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday on March 2. The performance will include Dr. Seuss favorites like "My Many Colored Days" and "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish." Youth Theatre students have prepared their favorite Seuss stories - some set to music, others told through creative movement, all sure to be very entertaining. As with all Ring Around the Rose shows, there will also be plenty of opportunities for audience involvement .
