SALT LAKE CITY

SATURDAY’S VOYEUR

Salt Lake Acting Company, 168 W. 500 North, Salt Lake City

The longest running annual musical satire and the only show of its kind, written for and about its specific community year after year. In this year’s edition, the present interrogates the past as we meet characters from 1978 trapped in Spirit Prison, awaiting their eternal fate.

Tickets: $45-$55 at tickets.saltlakeactingcompany.org or call 801-363-7522
