When it comes to Park City, there are a lot of rather amusing stereotypes which characterize our beautiful city and the surrounding mountainous regions. What makes these stereotypes so humorous? Well, in a lot of cases, the old standard, “It’s funny because it’s true” comes to mind. Whether it’s the oft-spotted Park City “settler” dressed in thermals looking like they’ve spent their entire lives in the chill of Park City’s mountain ranges, or the tourists dressed in their high-end flannel/alpine attire, Park City has its fair share of things to poke fun at.
When it comes to laughing at Park City, no-one laughs harder than we do at our selves. That’s why every year, the Egyptian Theater Company, Park City’s resident theater company, puts on a show explicitly aimed at making light of all things Park City. This April sees the 13th incarnation of Egyptian Theater Company’s production, Park City Follies.
Dating back to the year 2000, Egyptian Theater Company has taken it upon themselves to create a fun and hilarious look at all those who would label themselves a “Parkite”. This years edition of Park City Follies takes place from April 5th-13th and is guaranteed to be a jovial work of hilariousness created by the Follies Creative Team.
The Egyptian Theater Company
Constructed on the site of the old Dewey Theater, a center piece of pop culture and live theater which succumbed to a roof cave-in following heavy snowfall, construction of the Egyptian Theater began in 1922, and the theater opened its doors to audiences on Christmas Eve 1926. With the design of the Egyptian being largely inspired by the then recent discovery of King Tut’s tomb, John Rugar, the owner of the theater, brought in a renowned Egyptologist from Seattle to help create the authentic egyptian feel of the Egyptian.
The opening of the Egyptian Theater carried a great deal of significance for Park City residents as Park City had always been a hub of pop culture which thrived on live theater. In addition to facilitating Park City’s love of live theater, the new Egyptian Theater offered theater goers the option of taking in a feature film.
Through the years, the Egyptian Theater has undergone a great deal of reconstructive facelifts to preserve the building’s structural integrity. The residents of Park City have always been happy to give to their theater and offer support in times of trouble for this landmark venue located on Park City’s Main Street. Thanks to Park City’s gracious fundraising efforts, the Egyptian Theater, now called the Mary G. Steiner Egyptian Theater, is still open to the public and reminds audiences of what Park City is all about.
When it comes to making Park City a jovial laughing stock, and poking fun at the people, environment and lifestyle that makes Park City unique, who better to do it than a theater company whose history with Park City goes all the way back to 1922. Deeply entrenched in Park City culture, the 13th Annual Park City Follies is guaranteed to be a fun and exciting show for all adults who are ready to have a laugh at their own expense. For more information on the 13th Annual Park City Follies, or to find out more about their upcoming shows and reserve tickets, visit the Egyptian Theater website.
