Sandy Arts Guild Musical: Footloose

One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the Sandy Amphitheater stage. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren prepares for the inevitable adjustment. What he isn’t prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing and the locals eager to believe the worse about the new kid. Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and open mind.  

Not performed on Sunday, Aug 10.

Sundance Institute Summer Film Series: The Battered Bastards of Baseball

Come early! Filmmaker Maclain Way to attend and participate in a guided, pre-screening discussion. The annual Sundance Institute Summer Series is back and our 2014 line up has something for everyone. Grab a blanket, pack a picnic, and bring your friends to enjoy Sundance Film Festival favorites under the stars. All screenings are free and open to the public. No ticket needed.

Film Overview: When Portland, Oregon, lost its longtime minor-league affiliate, Bing Russell—who briefly played ball professionally before enjoying a successful Hollywood acting career—bought the territory and formed a single-A team to operate outside the confines of major-league baseball. When they took the field in 1973, the Mavericks—the only independent team in America—started with two strikes against them. What did Deputy Clem from Bonanza know about baseball? Or Portland, for that matter? The only thing uniting his players, recruited at open tryouts, was that no other team wanted them.

Sundance Institute Summer Film Series: God Help the Girl

The annual Sundance Institute Summer Series is back and our 2014 line up has something for everyone.

Grab a blanket, pack a picnic and bring your friends to enjoy Sundance Film Festival favorites under the stars. All screenings are free and open to the public. No ticket needed.

Film Overview: Eve is a catastrophe—low on self-esteem but high on fantasy, especially when it comes to music. Over the course of one Glasgow summer, she meets two similarly rootless souls: posh Cass and fastidious James, and together they form a group. In God Help the Girl, first-time writer/director Stuart Murdoch creates a poignant coming-of-age story that doubles as an indie-pop musical. The project began as a suite of songs, written while Murdoch was in between records and tours as lead singer of Belle and Sebastian. He nurtured it for nearly a decade into a fully formed film, set in the Bohemian fantasia of Glasgow's West End, which is populated by mods, rockers, and emo kids who sing and dance.

Foraging for Wild Foods

This class also meets on Saturday, 08/23/14, 9 a.m.–5 p.m.

Nature provides a beautiful untended garden in the forests and backyards that surround us; sitting mostly unappreciated and ignored. Discover the hidden edible delights that await once you know what you are looking for and soon, what you may have considered a weed, will become a nutritious delicacy on your dinner table. When you complete this course, you will find yourself hunting elderberries and eating nettles raw as you hunt for that next food find. For the field day students are asked to wear long pants, long sleeves, and hiking boots or shoes.

Entry into American Fork Canyon will cost $6 per car (students are encouraged to carpool).

To register or for more information, call 801-587-LIFE (5433) or visit lifelong.utah.edu.
