Hale Center Theatre Orem to Present KISS AND TELL, 12/31-2/8

An audience favorite at Hale Center Theater Orem, Kiss and Tell will be revived as the first production of HCTO's 2014 season.

Shirley Temple headlined the 1945 film version of Kiss and Tell as Corliss Archer, a precocious 15-year-old, who, along with her best friend, sells kisses to support the war effort - an event that causes finger-pointing between the families. Can Corliss solve everyone's problems while hiding the enormous secret she promised to keep? A hilarious comedy of mistaken identity and misguided family feuds.

Kymberly Luke Mellen directs. The design team includes Bobby Swenson (scenic design), Amanda Fitt (costumes), Janna Larsen (hair & make-up), Cody Swenson (lighting) and Cody Hale (sound).

Tickets range in price from $17 - $21 each ($4 or $5 less for children). To order tickets visit the Hale Center Theater Orem Box Office, call 801-226-8600 or visit

Kiss and Tell will run nightly (except Sundays and January 1st and 8th) from December 31 - February 8th, 2014. Evening performances begin at 7:30 p.m. Saturday matinees begin at 3:00 p.m. each week.
