THE LION IN WINTER depicts the interpersonal relationships among members of the English royal family on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day of the year 1183. The play is set in the castle of King Henry II of England, located in Chinon, in the English-ruled region of France. It concerns the interpersonal dynamics and political wrangling of King Henry; his wife Eleanor, whom he has kept imprisoned in a tower for the past ten years; and their three sons, who are vying for the privilege of being named heir to the English throne

What we've arranged:

2:00: Lion in Winter at Pinnacle Acting Company in Midvale
4:30 (approximately): Post show discussion with the cast
5:15 (approximately): Dinner with fellow Utah Theater Lovers - at Joe Morley's (BBQ just down the street - 100 West Center Street Midvale, UT 84047,[masked]).

Purchase Tickets:

AN RSVP DOES NOT GUARANTEE YOU A TICKET! To purchase tickets, please visit Pinnacle Acting Company's website ( or call[masked]. Tickets are $12.

OR you can buy tickets at the door for $10 if you tell them you are with Utah Theater Lovers (only available on the afternoon we go).

When you RSVP please indicate how many people will be joining us for the show.

About the Post Show Discussion:

Pinnacle will be hosting a post-show discussion with the actors. Utah Theater Lover members are invited to attend. In short, the show will end and the audience members who wish to stay will move towards the stage. From there, the actors and sometimes those involved in the production will come back on stage and answer any questions we have. There will likely be an announcement with details so pay attention.

When you RSVP please indicate how many people will be joining us for the post-show discussion.

About Dinner:

Please feel free to join us for dinner if you are seeing the show on a different night or just want to hang out with the cool kids. :)

We like to highlight and support local restaurants. This month, we will be meeting around 5:15 (following the show and discussion). The reservation will be under the name of Utah Theater Lovers (or Megan Pedersen).

When you RSVP please indicate how many people will be joining us for dinner.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do we get tickets?
You must buy tickets on your own. An RSVP with Utah Theater Lovers does not guarantee a seat to the production. Please visit: or call[masked] to purchase your tickets before hand or purchase them at the Utah Theater Lover discount for $10 at the door.

Will we be sitting together?
The seating is General Admission, so if you get there on time and meet us in the lobby, we will all be sitting together.

Where will we be meeting?
We will be meeting in the lobby prior to the show at 1:30. Megan (yours truly) will update this post as the time gets closer as to what she will be wearing. Members of Utah Theater Lovers can buy a drama mask pin for $2 from Megan as a way to identify each other. Please let her know if you are interested and don’t forget to wear your pins if you already have one.

After the show, the post show discussion will be in the theater. If we would like, we can converge at this point and sit in the same area as seats are not reserved.

Immediately after the discussion, we will head to Joe Morley's for dinner reservations under Utah Theater Lovers (or Megan Pedersen).

I’d like to invite a group to attend a different show with me.
Right now we are committing to seeing one show per month (sometimes two but rarely). However, if you are attending another show and would like to get a group together we encourage you to suggest an event.

Under the title of our page, there is an option to Suggest A New Meetup. If you click on this, you can suggest a show for others to see. Please make sure you adhere to two guidelines

1. Title the event “Member Suggested Event: (name of show)”
2. Do not contact the theater as a member of Utah Theater Lovers. We are very strategic in the theaters and shows we see and in order to offer special perks to our members, we need to maintain those relationships on this end.

Otherwise, we absolutely encourage all of you to meetup together and continue to explore and experience the great theater we have in this state!

I’d like to suggest a show or theater.
Please let us know what you would like to see. If at anytime you have a suggestion for a show or a theater you think we would like, please contact [masked]. Again, we aim for one show a month but have been know to do more.

Additional Questions:
Please contact Megan Pedersen at [masked].

Looking forward to the show!
