Desert Star Players Are Happily Ever Faster

Addam Griffith, Corinne Adair, & Corey Brandenburger at the Ragnar Trail Relay
High in the Wasatch Mountains, 35 miles north of Salt Lake City, in the shadows of Mount Ogden, you’ll find Snowbasin Resort. Many may not know this world class ski resort has miles and miles of the most incredibly beautiful single track trails.  To enjoy these trails a few of Desert Star's own joined tens of thousands of people who flocked to Cache Valley this June to participate in the this years Ragnar Trail Relay.

The Ragnar Trail Relay format combines running with friends, camping and access to some of the most beautiful trails and destinations in the country.  Think of it as a 192-mile party with 12 friends.  Teams of 12 rock out to live bands, enjoy the wacky participant costumes, and make life-long friends with teammates and competitors.

This year Desert Star actors Corey Brandenburger, Corrine Adair, and Addam Griffith , were part of a 12 member team that ran the race with a fun twist.  The official team name was “Happily Ever Faster” and each of the runners had a cleaver name that followed this fairytale–racing theme.  Addam was Flynn Runner, Corey was Sprints Charming, and Corrine was Cinderagnar.  A few other names included Runpunzel, Runpelstiltskin, and Starting Belle.
Corinne Adair
Corey Brandenburger is currently playing Marshal Buck Sidesaddle in Desert Star’s newest comedy “The Lone Stranger.”  Addam Griffith is getting ready to start his new job this fall as Choir Director at Alta High School and will hopefully be back on the Desert Star stage soon.  Some of you may have been wondering what actress Corrine Adair has been up to since her last appearance in “Wicked-er.”  Corrine has moved to San Diego with her family and though we will miss her we are excited for her new adventure and wish her the best of luck in San Diego.

These dedicated runners ran nearly 200 miles from Logan, over three mountain passes, past fields of alpine wildflowers, under the stars and finishes in fabulous Park City.  Congratulations to our fantastic actors!
