Egyptian's YouTheatre Production of Emma - A Pop Musical is Coming Soon
Although there’s some argument as to who first coined the phrase, it’s nonetheless widely accepted that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Perhaps no one has been more flattered over the years than famed author Jane Austen – movies, parodies, reimagined novels, and now, a musical.
Coming to Park City’s Egyptian Theatre in May, Emma – A Pop Musical is the modern day retelling of Austen’s similarly precocious Emma. In the musical version, Emma is a high school senior who sets about to find the perfect boyfriend for a classmate. Her relentless matchmaking eventually gets in the way of her friendships and her own happiness.
The production, which includes music from iconic girl groups like The Supremes to more contemporary artists such as Katy Perry, is presented by the Egyptian YouTheatre. YouTheatre provides programs for children ages 5-18 who are interested in all aspects of theatre. The Summer Camp schedule is available now and has a wide variety of options, ranging from puppetry to musical theatre to production.
