CENTERVILLE

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD

CenterPoint Legacy Theatre, 525 N. 400 West, Centerville

From the seminal work of Harper Lee, this adaptation for the stage is a powerful drama following the court proceedings of a black man in Maycomb, Alabama, accused of committing a crime against a white woman. The upstanding Atticus Finch has the arduous task of defending this innocent man. Observing from a different perspective, his children, Jem and Scout, feel it their duty to fight for justice alongside their father. Examining the inner workings of racism, trust and the meaning of being an honorable citizen, “To Kill a Mockingbird” is a dynamic play not to be missed.

Performances: 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Feb. 2 and 3

Tickets: $17.50-$27 at centerpointtheatre.org/tickets or call 801-298-1302 

DON’T DRINK THE WATER

CenterPoint Legacy Theatre, 525 N. 400 West, Centerville

Have you ever gone on a European vacation, had your plane redirected to a country behind the Iron Curtain, and been accused of being a spy? Even if you haven’t, New Jersey family the Hollanders have got you covered in this uproarious Woody Allen comedy, “Don’t Drink the Water.” While this outspoken family is panicking, they are left in the hands of the missing U.S. ambassador’s hapless son Axel, who seems to be doing anything but helping. This is the perfect night of comedy and laughter; tickets to this show are sure to go fast!

PERRY

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE

Heritage Theatre, 2505 S. Highway 89, Perry

Arguably Jane Austen’s most famous work, “Pride and Prejudice” is beautifully adapted for the stage. The drama of high Victorian society married with witty humor leaves audiences swooning for the most riveting courtship in theatrical history. Before the merriment of marriage can begin, however, the proud Elizabeth Bennet must navigate her way around a stifling mother, impetuous sisters and completely unsuitable suitors. Adding to the endless complications, her would-be match, Mr. Darcy has his own flaws to overcome. In the end, true love blossoms when pride and prejudice meet.

Performances: 7:30 p.m. Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays through Feb. 10

Tickets: $10-$12 at heritagetheatreutah.com/boxoffice.html or call 435-723-8392

SALT LAKE CITY

CHARLIE’S AUNT

The Off Broadway Theatre, 272 S. Main St., Salt Lake City

One of the funniest plays ever shown at the OBT, this production features mistaken identities, young lovers in need of chaperones, and one ugly guy in a dress. Two young college boys want to court two young girls; but, without a chaperone, they need to enlist the help of their nerdy friend Babs, who impersonates an old widow so well, everyone falls in love with her/ him. Confused? You won’t be when you see this hilarious, side-splitting production. OBT’s hyper-charged take on this classic is the perfect way to warm up your winter.

Performances: 7:30 p.m. Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays through Feb. 24; 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 10

Tickets: $10-$16 at theobt.retailregister.com or call 801-355-4628

MAGNA

YOU’RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN

Empress Theatre, 9104 W. 2700 South, Magna

The whole gang is here: Bossy Lucy is hopelessly in love with piano prodigy Schroeder who doesn’t give her the time of day, perfectionist Sally is still mocking blanket-toting Linus, Snoopy is in the doghouse, and “blockhead,” himself, Charlie Brown, is in rare form.

Performances: 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Feb. 2 and 3
