ST. GEORGE — In a show that weaves entertainment and history together, the original production “Sanctuary: The Story of Zion” will be playing various dates this summer starting Friday at Dixie State University’s O.C. Tanner Amphitheater.
Written by storyteller and singer-songwriter Sam Payne, the show will tell the multilayered story of Zion National Park through pictures, story and song.
“Sanctuary” provides the audience a greater understanding of the challenges and triumphs of one of the nation’s most popular national parks. Its story spans from Zion’s first ancient inhabitants to the pioneer settlers of the area and finally, present-day residents and tourists.
“We hope you’ll join us for a fun evening and gain a deeper appreciation for the park and its past,” Steve Lemmon, the show director said. “It’s a special experience, being able to watch this show, in the actual setting of Zion’s red rocks.”
The show plays at 8:30 p.m. July 1, 2, 22 and 23; August 19 and 20; and September 3 and 5. Tickets are $15 for adults, $6 for youth, and $38 for families.
