Standing Still Standing

What: Standing Still Standing

Where: Provo Theatre Company (105 East 100 North)

Why: In the last year or so, there has been an influx of new plays premiering in the Provo area. To the surprise of virtually everyone involved, many of them are really, QUITE good. This one has the creative team of one of the most successful, Little Happy Secrets, behind it, as well as people who've worked on local shows such as Rabbit Hole, The Fading Flower, and BYU's popular Divine Comedy group. This new comedy is bound to set the standards for new play development in Provo area even higher.

When: July 10th-July 27th - Thursdays & Fridays at 7:30 PM, Saturdays at 2:00 PM and 7:30 PM, and Mondays at 7:30 PM. (Running time for the show is approximately 90 minutes.)

How: Tickets are $12 general admission (Thursday – Saturday, Monday). Preview tickets are $5. Student/Senior discount is $2 off the regular ticket price with a valid ID. Group rates of 5 or more are available. Advanced purchase is recommended as performances may sell out. To purchase tickets or for more information visit or

Who: The creative team has given their production a PG-rating for mature themes, mild language, and brief drug references.
A press release for Standing Still Standing describes the show:

Moving between the waking world, the online community, and dreams, Standing Still Standing is the story of a marriage under siege from illness and insecurity. Ben and Grace have been married for three years—he’s slept through two. At least, that’s how it feels when you’re only awake three hours out of the day and the rest are filled with visions of Billy Joel, the Pope, and a cheese woman from Minnesota. Standing Still Standing is a comedy about love and life…and staying awake for both.

For more information, check out the show's blog at (be sure to check out the hillarious Jen Vlogs series). Also, for those of you interested in the creative process, be sure to attend the production's free post-show discussions on Thursdays, July 16 and 23; Saturday matinees, July 11, 18 and 25; and Mondays, July 13, 20 and 27.

Standing Still Standing is produced by Bluelight Stage and Leilani Productions with additional support from the New Play Project and Brigham Young University Experimental Theatre Company.
