Tony’s gay agenda

ANNUAL EVENTS

It’s no QSaltLake Fabby Awards event, but the Utah AIDS Foundation’s 28th annual Red Carpet Gala returns (LOL! We love you UAF!). Guests will enjoy live entertainment brought to you by The RCGSE, superb dining by Cosmopolitan Catering and an incredible silent auction. All the while watching the 90th Annual Academy Awards. It is the chance to dust off the tux, slip into your fanciest dress, and join them for a magical evening.
Logan Pride Foundation invites all to their first annual Gayla, held at the beautiful Vineyards at Mount Naomi Farms. The theme is “Over the Rainbow” and will be a night filled with food, music, art, socialization, and fun. Proceeds will go toward Logan Pride’s 2nd Annual LGBTQ+ Youth Prom and other Logan Pride events. The evening is an 18+ formal but with your style and flair! For those that are 21 and over, it is BYOB (which means Bring Your On Barbie!).

THEATRE

Westminster College presents a production of the multi-Tony award-winning musical Spring Awakening. It is a groundbreaking fusion of morality, sexuality and rock ‘n’ roll! Set in late-19th century Germany, it concerns teenagers who are discovering the inner and outer tumult of sexuality. In a world where grown-ups hold all of the cards, Wendla and Melchior are thrust into the terrifying labyrinth of adolescence as they explore their budding concepts of rebellion, sexuality, passion, and puberty. A musical celebration of youth and rebellion that navigates teen self-discovery in a bildungsroman of anxiety. Contains mature themes such as sexual abuse, abortion, and suicide; not suitable for children.

1Thursday — Spring Awakening
Courage Theatre, Westminster College, 1700 S. 1300 East, 7:30 p.m., through March 10. Tickets $10, app.arts-people.com
