Tuacahn: Miracle in Padre Canyon

$15, August 20, 7:30pm, pre-show gathering at 6:30pm

Experience what the original visionaries saw in the untouched beauty of Southern Utah’s Padre Canyon. Tuacahn: Miracle in Padre Canyon, combines the creative energy of a Broadway musical with the history of this magical place. Two years ago, the DOCUTAH International Documentary Film Festival launched its Festival with “Tuacahn: Miracle in Padre Canyon.” The film—which was produced through the generosity of Dave and Nanette Pugsley and the hard work of Dixie State University film students—will screen at 7:30pm on Tuesday, August 20. Come one hour early for refreshments and a social gathering with some of the people who made the film happen.

The vision that created Tuacahn Amphitheatre was born from a reverence for nature and a desire to preserve that natural magnificence and provide a unique experience for visitors. DOCUTAH joined with Tuacahn Amphitheatre to present a film intertwining the history of this place with a behind the scenes look at just how the incredible Broadway production of Shrek the Musical came together.

This is a tale of two productions. One is the history of the canyon and the vision that gave rise to an amphitheatre as a venue for professional, world-class family entertainment: The other is the story of how a complicated Broadway show is developed, mounted, and configured to utilize and adapt to the natural wonder of Padre Canyon.

“At Tuacahn we say, ‘expect the unforgettable,’ and this documentary will certainly live up to that, bringing audiences into intimate contact with the artists and production crew as they develop and then present a remarkable production, while also allowing viewers to understand how Tuacahn: Miracle in Padre Canyon came to be,” noted Kevin Smith, CEO of Tuacahn.

The documentary will begin at 7:30pm on August 20th. A social gathering will begin at 6:30pm. Tickets are $15.
