The final phase of renovation is underway in Utah Festival's historic Utah Theatre, with completion anticipated by spring 2015 thanks to major donations from Larry H. & Gail Miller, the George S. & Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation, the State of Utah, John & Nancy Schellkopf and others. The restoration will transform a run-down movie house into a 350-seat, state of the art facility dedicated to creativity and excellence in the performing arts.
The Utah will become a high-class venue year-round for theatrical and musical productions as well as for classic movies. It will also be home of a magnificent Mighty Wurlitzer Organ, which will provide the rare opportunity for classic silent movies to be screened with live organ accompaniment. The Utah will also feature concerts, chamber operas, lectures, musicals, plays, receptions and more, in addition to being home to the Utah Festival Conservatory of the Performing Arts, Academy and Opera by Children.
The renovation includes a fully expanded stage, fly loft, new lighting and sound systems, orchestra pit and organ chamber, rehearsal space, dressing rooms and rooftop garden. In addition, seismic renovation and relocation of power lines will enhance the property.
We still need your help to complete this spectacular project.
