Utah high school stages Scottish smutfest

Brother and Sister Flake were very disappointed with Uintah High's production of Brigadoon.
Dear Editor,

We saw the high school play “Brigadoon” on Saturday.

It was impressive to see all the effort that goes into such a production – it was evident that there was a lot of hard work, from costuming and creating props to memorizing lines and rehearsing music.

With all that effort, it was a great disappointment to discover that the play was not worth seeing. Although there were many fine actors and great music, there was lewd content in this “family entertainment” that prevents us from bringing our children to see it, or from recommending it to others. With out suggestive movements, let alone songs, it could have been so much cleaner and more appropriate. We were saddened that such attitudes and actions would be encouraged among our youth in this way.

A tip of the ol' helmet to Brother McConkie.

As long as we're reviewing theater productions, I better link back to this one for The Producers--God damned theater let Hitler sing in it.


  1. What a day is has been. What a rare mood I'm in. Why, it's almost like being in love.

    But what the fuck do I know?

  2. General, Sir:

    I know 'zackly how those kids "junior" and "performer" feel. Being dissed by the Flakes, just because they were in the play that they didn't have no control over it's writing and stuff. I felt much the same sense of shame and such when people were critical of my school's senior play, a remake of "The Devil In Miss Jones".

  3. Those aren't real names, right? I mean, nobody's really named "Ben and Julie Flake"?

    So, uh, I suppose they won’t be staging Rent any time soon?

  5. There is no place in American Culture for this kind of filth. Brigadoon, like most Broadway musicals was, well was from Broadway. And Broadway is in New York, do I have to spell out the rest?
    I know Van Johnson's career never recovered from being in the film version.

  6. How do you pronounce, "Uintah", any way?

    Would they prefer "High School Musical"(1-6)?

    Love to all

  7. Hm. I don't remember any lewd content in Brigadoon. Perhaps I was paying insufficient attention?

  8. It isn't a lewd play, there is one slightly bawdy song which was actually the best performance in the play. The kids did a great job on the play which isn't all that great. And yes, they really are the Flakes, obviously a family with very conservative values.

    It's pronounced You-in-tah.

  9. Ben & Julie Flake
    They took the cake
    The icing on top
    Made them feel very hot
    They took down the banners
    And burst the balloons
    Happy Birthday parties
    Are for faggy baboons

    From "Bonobodoon"
    (a work in progress)


  10. Ban the Iliad while your at it.

  11. I guess "The Vagina Monologues" is out of the question?

  12. Next year's double-barrelled production of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Hair is really not going to be Mr. and Mrs. Flake's cup of lukewarm water with lemon.

    General Sir,

    Have the one in blue, with the white bonnet, bathed and brought to my tent.

    Ah, culcha!
    Reminds of my high school production of South Pacific and those lusty sailor songs. Well, just a bit.
    If only our high school drama teacher hadn't posed for those mens underwear ads in the local paper...

  15. Scaldalous, Sir -
    Why, them kids in the Basin just have too much free time, what with the oil shale bust and all... wait, did I just say bust???


We'll try dumping haloscan and see how it works.
