We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Theatre Arts Conservatory: Intersection




The next generation of great local stage acting doesn’t start when the practitioners are already adults, any more than the next generation of great athletes begins with the NCAA. For five years, Theatre Arts Conservatory—in conjunction with Plan-B Theatre Company—has made it a goal to take young would-be actors, and train them for how to be trained. You can see some of the results in a public performance of Intersection, a new play by BYU faculty member Eric Samuelsen, whose Amerigo will be part of next season’s Plan-B lineup.

Addressing interpersonal relationships touched by conflict and anger, it follows nine young women as they—in the words of a press release— “negotiate a space where evil threatens and violence looms.” In this theater space, though, it’s all about the love. Proceeds from the production will support the Theatre Arts Conservatory scholarship and outreach fund—so you can support the next next generation.

Theatre Arts Conservatory: Intersection @ Rose Wagner Studio Theatre, 138 W. 300 South, 801-355-2787, July 31–Aug. 1, 7 p.m.
