Heritage Theatre, 2505 S. Highway 89, Perry
The magic of Camelot has captured the hearts and minds of theater lovers for generations. It is little wonder that Camelot is the winner of 4 Tony Awards and numerous other honorifics. Heritage Theater whisks audiences away to the glorious halls of Camelot Castle where chivalry, romance and high ideals abound. All is not well. Even the just utopia of King Arthur's kingdom is not free from intrigue and betrayal. True love foiled, friendships sullied and magical allegiances manipulated all come full circle in the rise and fall of Arthur's realm. The dream of Camelot will never die, the torch simply passes from one generation to the next.
Performances: 7:30 p.m. Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays through June 30; 2 p.m. Saturday, June 16 and 23

SALT LAKE CITY
‘LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS’
Regent Street Black Box Eccles Theater, 131 S. Main St., Salt Lake City
JAKS Youth Theatre Company presents Little Shop of Horrors, is a deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood science fiction smash musical. Seymour, a meek floral assistant, discovers a new breed of plant he calls Audrey II. The plant promises fortune and fame but feeds on blood. Songs like “Suddenly Seymour” and “Grow For Me” and the R&B songs the plants sing are the draw for this show. It’s fun and exciting with wonderful music and may be scary for younger children.
Performances: 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, June 8 and 9
Tickets: $12 at arttix.artsaltlake.org or call 801-355-2787
