Park City Follies

Known for its sellout shows lampooning everything Park City, the Park City Follies has been a long-time, live performance fundraiser for the Egyptian Theater.

Although a live performance could not happen last year, they are still hopeful for one in 2021.

In the meantime, they will be debuting a Valentine's Day Park City Follies online. Creative team member Josh Mann gives us the scoop.

Every spring for the past 20 years, when ski lifts stop running, traffic dissipates and local restaurants take a couple weeks to recuperate, the Park City Follies enters the scene.

The Park City Follies is always a sell out and folks know they must buy tickets early if they want to see the popular stage performance which pokes fun at Park City lifestyle, politics and culture. Tom Clyde is MC and one of the co-writers.

If you don’t have tickets to this year’s Park City Follies – you’re out of luck – unless you want to pay a bit extra and support the buildout of the Egyptian Theater’s new Youth Theater space with a tax deductible contribution. KPCW’s Leslie Thatcher has details.

When you're Rob Katz, the CEO of one of the world's biggest ski operators, and find out the joke is on your company by the small-town theater group, you make sure you get tickets to the sold-out show, so you can see for yourself. KPCW's Leslie Thatcher reports.

Upcoming shows at the Egyptain Theatre, like the Follies, may just be "3.2 beer" events, and won't include wine - unless Egyptian Manager Randy Barton successfully pleads his case at a Tuesday morning meeting of the Utah Liquor Commission.

Barton, who is also a KPCW host, says the Commission and the State Division of Alcohol Beverage Control have shifted direction and won't allow the Theater a single-event wine or spirits permit. Rick Brough has more.
