The 54th Step
Part of the Utah Valley Pride Theatre Festival
State Representative Amanda Becker has been fighting to get her anti-bullying bill passed for six years. Today, on the last day of the legislative session, she's determined to get the last three votes she needs to pass the bill, despite living in a conservative state where some see the bill as too "pro-LGBTQ."
This performance is a part of the Utah Valley Pride Theatre Festival in American Fork.
Performances will take place in the East Theatre at the American Towne Hub at 120 W Main Street in American Fork.
Join us directly after the performance for a talk-back with Jesse Nepivoda, playwright, and members of the creative team on FRIDAY, JUNE 9 or FRIDAY, JUNE 16.
