Bye Bye Birdie: national touring company from New York

A lot of people get together to make these performances happen.

There are the sponsors such as Zion's Bank and Merit Medical.

There is the talent (watch this short video!).

And then there are the invisible people (until now!) who work behind the scenes to bring those sponsors and talent together for the benefit of the community. This Insider's look to downtown Provo gives a glimpse behind the scenes of the Mayor's Series by revealing the committee who is making it happen. Committee members include: Paul Duerden, Covey Center for the Arts Manager; Danae Friel, Covey Center for the Arts Marketing Specialist; John Borget, Provo City Finance Director; Scott Henderson, Provo City Parks and Recreation Assistant Director; Gene Nelson, Provo City Library Director; Mark Nord, Provo City Deputy Mayor; and Tom Morgan of Zions Bank, a major sponsor of the series. The first photo has Tom and Danae, and the second has John and Tom.

(By the way, Danae is the daughter of emeritus professor, Peter Myer, one of our local beloved artists.)For more information about the performaces and to purchase season tickets please visit coveycenter.org

See you there!
