'CSI: Provo' places Desert Star in Happy Valley

Have any of you ever heard of the Desert Star Playhouse in Murray? I hadn't until this assignment. But it sounds hilarious. It sounds like Divine Comedy, but instead of sketches it's a whole play. They like to make lots of Utah/Mormon jokes, but their latest is more specifically making fun of Utah. (And, I almost got to interview a "celebrity" for it ... if only Nick Whitaker had called me back!)
Perfect date: This is not your Toto's 'Africa!'
The Herald does a "perfect date" every week. For this week I basically summed up an article published last week about the "Africa!" show going on at the SCERA.
(I don't quite get the headline ... and I don't remember writing "Get in touch with your African roots -- whether or not you actually have any or not." Don't know how that got there.)
I also did a couple of briefs, which is really just abridging press releases:
Arts Briefs - Jan. 12, 2012
Sound Briefs - Jan. 12, 2012
I also did a short article (like the "Perfect date" above) about the next BYU Young Ambassadors show. For some reason it's not online, but if you have a copy of Thursday's Daily Herald, you can find it in "The Ticket."
