The BYU Young Company celebrated it’s 40th anniversary on Wednesday, February 4, 2015 with the opening of A Mid-summer Night’s Dream, directed by Nat Reed. Julia Ashworth and Becky Wallin planned a wonderful event honoring Harold Oaks, the founder of Young Company. Haley Flanders, the dramaturg for The Fisherman’s Wife, put together a slide show that featured photos from most of the touring Young Company shows from past years, including slides of George and Leslie Nelson, when they met on Rumplestilskin, David Morgan, Teresa Love, and Becky Wallin. Over a 100 people attended, including many company members from past shows. After the show, Julia, Amy Jensen, and Harold Oaks spoke, and then the audience moved to Studio A where refreshments were served. Rodger Sorensen, Teresa Love, and Deb Tholen Escalante performed a delightful number reminiscent of their days as touring company members, “Into the Van.” Megan Ann Rasmussen, another past president of the national TYA organization and TMA alum, also spoke to the group. Kudos to our outstanding Young Company! Be sure you get a chance to bring a young friend to the delightful puppeted production of A Mid-summer Night’s Dream.
