What to do in Park City this weekend: Peter Noone, Ballet West, Inside Out

Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits Starring Peter Noone, readies a four-night stand that will begin Thursday at the Egyptian Theatre. Noone says being part of music’s British Invasion was a great experience, because all the bands would keep tabs on each other in a friendly, not competetive way.
