A Charming Flight to Friendship at SCERA’s Theatre for Young Audiences musical “Captain Louie”

(Orem, Utah) — The music of Stephen Schwartz, composer for such Broadway classics as “Wicked,” “Pippin” and “Godspell,” is one of the reasons director DeLayne Bluth Dayton is especially excited to bring “Captain Louie” to the SCERA Center for the Arts Oct. 16-Nov. 3.

“The Grammy-award winner has composed some amazing music for this darling family show,” Dayton says. “There is a sort of ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ feel to it as my actors perform a tango, some rapping, an eerie song and many other different styles of music and dance. The music advances the story and the dialogue guides us to the next song.”

“Captain Louie” is SCERA’s latest Theatre for Young Audiences show, a one hour musical designed for families to introduce their children to the magic of live theatre – and entertain adults as well. “Captain Louie” plays on Monday and Friday evenings at 7:00pm, and reserved-seat tickets are $6 for adults and $4 for children age 3-11 and seniors age 65 and older. 10am matinees for school groups of 20 or more are Monday-Friday, and reservations are required. Call 801-225-ARTS ext. 1011 to check group guidelines and availability.

Tickets are available at www.scera.org, by calling 801-225-ARTS, or at the main office at SCERA Center, 745 S. State Street, Orem, open 10am-6pm weekdays or at the ticket office 30 minutes prior to performance.

The musical begins with Louie, a young boy sitting on the steps of his new house. He observes other children playing and feels lonely as he sees them toss a ball, jump rope and participate in games. Afraid to join them because he’s the new kid and they don’t know him, he resorts to using his imagination.  He puts things in a box and reimagines his old neighborhood. He then takes a little toy airplane to get there.

“We actually have designed a larger airplane for his flight based on the model airplane,” Dayton says. “It will seem as if an airplane is transporting him to his former home and his friends. It should feel magical.”

Louie doesn’t recognize his friends at first, because it is Halloween night, and they are all wearing costumes. After some teasing and trickery, he feels happy and right at home. The evening continues as they help their friend Ziggy decorate his home for Halloween. They also make fun of the neighbors who have moved into Louie’s previous home with a song about “loozas.” What they don’t realize is that Julia, who has joined them and has participated in the fun, is the new tenant. When they realize this, they realize they already like her, and all is well.

Louis begins to reconsider his new neighborhood. “He learns to avoid making assumptions about what people will think, and believes he can make new friends,” Dayton explains. “It’s a sweet message and Louie flies home to embrace his new life. In fact, when his new neighbors see him in his cool Captain Louie aviator costume, they immediately invite him to join the group.”

“I know people will like ‘Captain Louie’ for the songs, but I also think the story will resonate with them,” Dayton adds. “Who doesn’t know a child who is feeling left out or apprehensive about a new situation? I love that the production shows different personalities and all the unique ways of being part of a group of friends. SCERA believes in theater that uplifts and supports family. I love being part of it.”

As is characteristic of Theatre for Young Audiences, adults play the roles. This cast features Eric James Smith as Louie. Audiences may remember Eric as The Cat in the Hat in “Seussical The Musical” this past summer at SCERA Shell Outdoor Theatre, and as Scuttle in “The Little Mermaid.” Other players are Kjersti Christensen, Kelli Dougal, Brooke Wray, Laura Chapman, Jacom Clarkson, Kaysie Norton, and Daisy Allred. Each wears a Halloween costume and has a distinct personality, including enthusiasm, caution, self-confidence, fun, leadership, and sweetness.

Assisting Dayton, are Shawn Mortensen, set designer and choreographer; Danielle Berry, stage manager; Kelsey Seaver, costume designer; Christy Norton, props designer; and Chase Elison, lighting and sound.

Dyer Highway to Bring their Sibling Country Harmonies to SCERA Oct. 21

(Orem, Utah) — When Tel Dyer was four years old, his mother entered him in the Millard County Fair talent competition. He came in second, edged out by a young girl who sang the same song but used hand actions.

“I guess you could say she beat me out with her style,” laughs the oldest of seven children and one of four siblings who sing together with their musical group called Dyer Highway.

The Highland, Utah-based country and bluegrass quartet will offer an evening highlighting their own compositions celebrating families, small towns and feelings of the heart when they appear in concert Saturday, Oct. 21 at SCERA Center for the Arts in Orem. They will also offer their version of some old favorites and new hits from other music artists.

Reserved-seat tickets for the 7 p.m. concert are $12 for adults and $10 for children 3-11 and seniors 65 and older. They are available at www.scera.org, by calling 801-225-ARTS, or in person at the main office at SCERA Center, 745 S. State St., Orem.

In addition to the concert, SCERA is offering a pre-show barbecue from Landmark Catering at 6:00pm in a room adjacent to the theater. The cost is $12 per person, and seating is limited, so reservation must be made at 225-ARTS or purchase online. Concert tickets must be purchased separately.

The four siblings—who say they have been performing together as long as they can remember—will showcase not only their voices but also their instrumental abilities. Tel plays guitar, his sister Tiann performs on violin, Mady plays mandolin, violin, guitar and a variety of other instruments, and TayLynn is a guitarist. Audiences can expect fine harmonies, strong guitars and enthusiastic fiddling.

“Our mom is a great vocalist and taught us to sing,” Tel explains. “Her dream was for us to do music together, and since childhood we have sung together. Fortunately, we loved it.”

They liked performing together so well, they focused on music more than other friends or sports as they grew up. “This was so fun, and we enjoyed being together so much, my sisters and I became our own best friends. Working together on our music also had led to an abundance of mutual respect, and we are focused and dedicated to music.”

The singers, who range in age from 16 to 24, are a self-described country band with bluegrass overtones. They frequently play to multiple regional audiences and released an album they recorded in Nashville before Tel and Mady served missions for their church. Now reunited, they have recommitted themselves to their band and perform extensively in the region. Additionally, they have performed at music festivals in Colorado and Montana.

While Tel does most of the group’s composing, he says they it works better with their music when it also includes some healthy collaboration. “I may instigate the writing, but my sisters help a lot,” Tel says. Among their original songs will be “This Country Stands,” a nod to patriotism, and “Sweeter With Time,” with a premise that the relationships in our lives that are most important grow sweeter as time goes on.

Dyer Highway will have copies of their first album, also called “Dyer Highway” for sale at the SCERA concert, and are in the process of putting together a new selection of songs to be professionally produced in Nashville.

When the Dyer Highway artists observed how challenging the music industry lifestyle can be, they opted to be independent. “We can be busy, we can sell albums, we can perform extensively, build up our base and still have time for family, which is our top priority,” Tel explains.

Utah’s Biggest Halloween Race Supports Local Nonprofit

2017 Sep- Haunted Half.jpg

UVU PFP Takes First Place in National Financial Planning Challenge in Nashville

OREM, UT – OCTOBER 3, 2017– UVU’s Personal Financial Planning (PFP) students continued their incredible winning streak by capturing first place in the Financial Planning Association’s (FPA) National Financial Planning Challenge October 2-4 in Nashville, TN. UVU has always placed in this competition, but first place eluded them until now.

 

The FPA Challenge was open to teams of three undergraduate students from universities with financial planning programs. The students representing UVU in this competition were:

 

Josh Scott, a senior PFP major

Gerika Ballard, a senior PFP major

Brian Miller, a senior PFP major

 

The challenge consisted of three phases. Phase 1 was a written financial planning case study. Teams were given profiles for two hypothetical clients for whom they prepared a comprehensive financial plan. They could not seek advice or help from professionals, even from their own faculty adviser. After the first phase was judged, only the top eight teams advanced to the national competition. 

 

Says PFP student Gerika Ballard “I’m grateful I could have this incredible experience, but it happened because of UVU’s PFP program. We worked hard, putting in over 300 hours as a team, but without the program, we wouldn’t have the chance to participate in career-defining events like this.”

 

The students of the top-10 rated PFP program had their work cut out for them. After being flown all-expenses-paid to Nashville, students participated Phase 2, where teams presented their case study orally to a panel of judges.

Phase 3 was the “How Do You Know” Challenge, a two-hour “Jeopardy”-style quiz bowl that tested the financial planning knowledge of each team. UVU scored 8350 points in the quiz bowl, 2550 points more than distant second place California State University, Northridge, followed by Texas Tech University, Texas A&M University, Winthrop University, University of IL Urbana-Champaign, University of Georgia and University of Akron.

 

“Attending conferences and competitions like this lets us network closely with professionals in the financial planning industry. Each student on the team came back with many new contacts and relationships with potential employers,” says – PFP student Brian Miller”

 

For winning first place, the UVU team was awarded a $10,000 scholarship. Also, members of the first-place team will receive a full scholarship to FPA’s highly acclaimed residency program as well as one hour of career coaching with one of the industry’s best advisors.

 

“Josh, Brian, and Gerika worked extremely hard and we are very proud of them.  It was fun to see them honored in the final session in front of over a thousand financial planning professionals across the nation whose interest in UVU’s PFP program continues to grow,” says advisor, coach and mentor Dr. Hyrum Smith.
