If you’ve never experienced theatre under the stars, you are missing out. It is certainly one of my favorite summer activities. I love spreading out my quilt on the grass and relaxing, whether I’m watching a musical or listening to a concert. Add a frozen lemonade and voila! you have summer encapsulated.
The Scera, a shell shaped outdoor stage in Orem, offers a variety of entertainment. Their concert line-up is always impressive, and a bit nostalgic. (One year they had Boyz II Men. I remember loving that band as a teenager!) This summer the concert list includes the Utah Symphony, BYU’s Vocal Point, Rodney Atkins, Diamond Rio, and Starship. Concert tickets are $12-$35, depending on the show.
I know it’s cheesy, but my husband and I absolutely love musicals. I think we’ll be attending one of these to celebrate our anniversary this summer. We can pick from The Wizard of Oz, All Shook Up (think Elvis), or Fiddler on the Roof. Okay, I know we will choose Fiddler, but you can pick for yourself. Ticket prices range from $8-$14.
If musicals aren’t your thing, you can also catch a flick on their giant screen. The movie line-up features Hugo, E.T. (I think I must take my kids to see E.T. It’s a rite of passage.), Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, The Three Amigos, the Muppets, and Newsies. Movie tickets are 3 to 4 dollars a person.
