It’s a week full of Arts and Entertainment in Park City! Concerts, trivia games, and artist receptions galore! Now, I know that skiing and snowboarding are what brings visitors to Park City during the winter months; however, you would be remiss to miss out on the happenings occurring off of the slopes. Attending a few of Park City’s cultural events is a great way to round out your ski vacation package!
Explore the life of the musical legend Johnny Cash by attending the musical, “Ring of Fire”. The show takes its title from a song by Country and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Johnny Cash, and it is not your traditional linear play. It tells the story of Cash’s life through a series of music performances that are highlighted by projected images and spoken-word narration featured in the book “Cash: The Autobiography.” Ring of Fire is a story loosely based on the life of the musical legend, and features themes that are woven throughout the performance – themes that resonate throughout Cash’s music. The Dark Horse Company Theatre will present the show at the Egyptian Theatre beginning Friday, March 16, and run every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday through March 25. Visit www.egyptiantheatrecompany.org for show details.
Are you a sucker for pub quiz games? Well, then you’ll love the “Geeks Who Drink” nights hosted at The Sidecar Bar. Geeks Who Drink is a gaming trend that is making its way across the country, and luck for us, it has finally hit Park City, Utah! The difference between this iteration of pub trivia and the traditional form is that it involves multi-media clues that really engage the game player. A typical session features two audio rounds. The first round is similar to a “Name That Tune” format, while the second includes sound bites from film or television. The Sidecar also offers a visual round that is passed around to players who are waiting for their shot at the actual quiz game. There are never super general rounds; they are always specific, and sometimes a little sarcastic and cheeky in nature. Do you know your NFL felons? Well then this may be the game for you! Check out www.sidecarbar.com for hours and information.
Perhaps you’re looking for something a little more high-brow to engage in during your Park City vacation. The J Go Gallery, located at 408 Main Street, will host an artist reception for Krista Harris’ new abstract paintings on Friday March 16th, beginning at 6PM thorough 9PM. Harris’ paintings have been described as feeling as if they were taken directly from nature. Her work is lively, and uses loads of color that make her canvases actually appear as if they have their own moods. Truly amazing pieces of art that will have you coking your head to the side and imagining what the details and the colors all mean. Additional information regarding the artist and the reception can be found at www.jgogallery.com .
Bring out your artistic side during your vacation stay in Park City. There are so many amazing galleries and cultural events to take part in at all times! Whether you’re in Old Town or Kimball Junction, you will always find something to help you take your mind off of those ski weary legs!
