Adrien and Angela are both local actresses who have done many shows around town. Ironically enough, they often double each other when roles are double cast. So much to the point that, over the years, they have often said to each other, “We should totally do Side Show.”
Utah Musical Theatre Company will present the Broadway musical Side Show on Jan. 18 – Feb. 2, 2013 at Provo’s Echo Theatre. Side Show is a Utah premiere and the inaugural production of the newly formed company.

Now that we’re back from Thanksgiving break, Side Show rehearsals are picking up. One of the most exciting moments is when our designers start showing their designs, allowing the cast and production team the opportunity to visualize what everything is going to look like on stage.
