Summer is halfway over in Utah Valley, but things are just heating up. Make the most of your July weekends by marking these Utah Valley events in your calendar.

“Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”

The Sundance Theatre is back and ready to take the stage as performers take on “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” Go, go, go, go to the wild, wild west? That’s right. Joseph will be strapping on a pair of cowboy boots to compliment his colorful coat as the play transforms into a western theme. The script and music will be the same, but you might see a little bit of line dancing thrown in there. Giddy up and “go, go, go, go” to Sundance to see “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.”
