Utah Repertory Theater Company announces its production of the farce “What the Bellhop Saw” May 31-June 15 at the Historic Murray Theater.
Performances will be Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and a matinee at 2 p.m. on June 15.
“ ’What the Bellhop Saw’ was written for pure enjoyment,” director Chase Ramsey said in a news release. “Some of the themes expressed are semi-political — making it, at moments, a satire. But in truth, the reason ‘Bellhop’ has to be seen is because you will laugh until you’re sore.”
As the hapless guest Georgie, who checks into a hotel, is James McKinney, who recently played Vincent in a nationally honored production of “Vincent in Brixton.”
Jake Ben Suazo will play the role of Arlene, Georgie’s jealous wife. Suazo is co-creator of Thrillionaires Improv Theater and was last seen in “The 39 Steps.”
The other cast members are Aubrey Bench, Maddy Belle Forsyth, M. Chase Grant, Benjamin James Henderson, Robbie X Pierce, Jason Sullivan, Bethany R. Woodruff, and Daniel Whiting.
Advance tickets are $15-$18 and can be purchased atUtahRep.org/Tickets. The price of tickets at the door is $17-$20.
