Meet the American Fork City Council Candidates, and Millie
The only thing these two topics have in common is that I mention them in the same blog post.
Meet the Candidates
A meet-the-candidates event is scheduled in American Fork Thursday evening, October 18, at 7:30 p.m. at the American Fork Library, at 64 South 100 East. I have read (not on the flyer) that the sponsor is the local Chamber of Commerce.
American Fork City Council candidates Dale Gunther, Rick Storrs, Shirl LeBaron, Sherry Kramer, and Jason Porter are expected to attend. Come ask them your burning questions about themselves and about American Fork. Be a smarter voter on November 6.
One more thing: The flyer I received contains those immortal words, "Refreshments served."
Your humble blogger and family attended the Orem Hale Center Theater's production of Thoroughly Modern Millie Saturday afternoon. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The choreography was fun and well-executed. The acting was generally solid, as was the singing (excepting a bit of the machine gun effect in one soprano's vibrato on a few notes). And there isn't a bad seat in the theater. I had never seen this musical comedy before, but I had no trouble following the plot or the dialog -- or understanding how it won six Tony awards in 2002.
It plays almost every evening until about Thanksgiving, and there are some Saturday matinees. If you go, listen for a funny parody of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker.
Full disclosure: A niece is in the case, playing about six small roles.
