THE REVOLUTION BEGINS

The Hive’s 2015 Theatre Revolution Kickstarter Fundraiser

The Hive turns five in 2015, and to celebrate such a milestone year, the minds that brought you WHO ARE YOU?, Edward Albee’s AT HOME AT THE ZOO, A BEHANDING IN SPOKANE, and number of other groundbreaking premieres to the SLC stage, now aim to change your perceptions (or misconceptions) of the theatrical arts altogether. A revolution of the mind, if you will? It’s time to take a stand against boring theatre and snobbish pretense once and for all. But The Hive needs your contribution in order to succeed. Simply choose from one of the many affordable Sponsor Packages and join The Revolution today!

A very special thank you to all those who have donated to the cause so far. Your generosity and dedication to the revolution is absolutely vital to The Hive's success. THANK YOU!

THE HIVE'S 2015 THEATRE REVOLUTION!




BUPKIS: A Play About Nothing

May 8-16, 2015 @ The Sugar Space

Five local playwrights team up with five local actors to create one phenomenal script about…absolutely nothing. Under the direction of Jared & Tiffany Greathouse, BUPKIS allows the audience to fill in the blanks for themselves, and rediscover what’s really important when it comes to the theatrical arts: Entertainment.



THE SECRET LIVES OF CLOWNS By JARED GREATHOUSE


Oct 9-17 2015 @ The Sugar Space

At first glance it would seem that successful theatre critic Johnny Harris leads a happy, healthy, normal life. With a great job, and a loving wife and family, how could one not be happy? But when Johnny receives news about the brutal murder of an old clown college chum, dark secrets from Johnny’s past begin to surface, including Mr. Wiggles; a Punk-Fu Party Clown with a wild imagination and a hedonistic appetite. Embrace your inner clown for this "pie in the face" Dramedy from local playwright Jared Greathouse.      
"LOVE . . . MURDER . . . CLOWNS."

SUBMIT YOUR SHORT PLAYS ABOUT . . . NOTHING!

 

  THE HIVE THEATRE COMPANY PRESENTS
BUPKIS
A PLAY ABOUT NOTHING

INSPIRED BY THE LIFE & WORK OF DAVID FETZER

 
    “Too many of the plays I see are limited by a particular political ideology that perpetuates a self-congratulatory atmosphere in the theatrical community, which is willing to prioritize “correct” ideas ahead of visceral and immediate work.”

 

“Theatre that is relieved of the obligation of offering an idea.”

 

-David Fetzer

The Hive Theatre Company is currently accepting short-play submissions for their 2015 production of BUPKIS: A PLAY ABOUT NOTHING (MAY 8-16, 2015 @ THE SUGAR SPACE); a tribute to the late David Fetzer. The script must be a short 10-15 minute play. The only catch? It must be about nothing. Jared and Tiffany Greathouse direct, as five local playwrights strip down theatrical convention and delve deep into the creative mind for answers to questions that only the audience truly knows.

                                                            
RULES & GUIDELINES: (PLEASE READ CAREFULLY)

       Script must be no longer than 15 minutes in duration

       All scripts chosen by submission process (DEADLINE JANUARY 1ST, 2015)

       Must be a local Utah resident

       Script must be about NOTHING  

       NO THEME OR MESSAGE

       Only location, character, and conflict are necessary (example: two men attempt to diffuse a ticking time bomb they find at a bus stop one morning)

       No more than 3 characters per script

       Basic plot, basic costumes, minimal props and scenery

       Interesting characters encouraged, clever dialogue is a plus, imagination and creativity are an absolute necessity

       Play must NOT be given a title (if selected, the script will be given a numerical title: Act One, Two, Three, Four, Five)

       Don’t hold back (be yourself)

       Writers may submit as many scripts as they’d like

       Q&A with writers, directors, and actors after each show

       Audience votes for favorite script

       SUBMIT ALL SCRIPTS TO: THEHIVETHEATRE@HOTMAIL.COM

STEADMAN & WALKER (ZOMBIE LLC): THE BLOODY AFTERMATH


Thank you to everyone who supported The Hive during our brief Zombie infestation. It was a blast. And thank you to the cast and crew for all of your hard work. The Hive has and always will be creating new and interesting theatre which simply cannot be compared to anything you've ever seen before, or might see again anytime soon. We are the company that could give two shits about the status quo. We are the dreamers, the seekers, the mad scientists of the local theatre scene. Theatre is alive in SLC and we are happy to play in our little corner of the sandbox! Thank you all for your love and support!
