CenterPoint Theatre, 525 N. 400 West, Centerville
When you’re trying to climb the corporate ladder, things can be a bit tough, but when you are a woman working for a “sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot,” it’s even worse. Three co-workers — Judy, Violet and Doralee — despise their boss and think up all sorts of ways of doing him in, but when an innocent mistake turns deadly, things take a turn for the wacky and wild. A laugh-a-minute comedy from the 1980s hit movie starring Dolly Parton about three heroines taking on “the man” and stepping into the shoes they were always meant to fill.
Performances: 7 p.m. Mondays to Saturdays through Sept. 2

SALT LAKE CITY
Salt Lake Acting Company, 168 W. 500 North, Salt Lake City
This is the 39th edition of Utah’s most irreverent and hilarious summer party. In the style of a “Mission Impossible” and James Bond spy drama, the three-act musical satire takes place on three momentous days:
Act I: Nov. 9 — the day after the 2016 election
Act II: Jan. 21 — the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration
Act III: Donald’s 110th day in office.
We visit a Utah state liquor store, Jason Chaffetz’s congressional office and Donald’s infamous estate, Mar-a-Lago (Voyeurized as “Mar-a-Loco”) in an attempt to figure out what exactly is going on in our crazy world and if there really is a Russian connection.
This year’s cast of characters includes Peggy, the manager of a liquor store in Salt Lake; Sterling, one of her most frequent “customers;” Buddy Holly, the late rock-and-roll heartthrob mysteriously back from the dead; Alexa and Siri, the voices in Amazon Echo Dot and Apple iPhone; Jason Chaffetz; Orrin Hatch; a chorus of Trump supporters and staffers; and Vladimir Putin himself.
Performances: 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays through Sept. 27; 1 and 6 p.m. Sundays through Sept. 10; 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 26
