Plan B Theatre
Since 1991, Plan-B has provided unique theatrical experiences for both audience and artist by producing theatre that is socially and politically conscious; explores cultural heritage and diversity; presents well-known texts in new ways; and/or fosters the creation of new work.
Repertoire includes the great full-length classical and contemporary ballets, as well as original works. Considered one of America's leading ballet companies.
Utah Opera Company
Utah Opera produces four professionally staged, fully costumed operas with nationally and internationally known artists.
The Utah Symphony
Founded in 1940, the Utah Symphony has become a vital presence on the American music scene through its distinctive performances worldwide and its well-known recording legacy. The Symphony performs in the Abravanel Hall.
Located in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, this historic landmark is the home of Ballet West, Utah Opera, and Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company. The theatre also hosts world class Broadway productions and community arts education programs.
Salt Lake's major regional theatre is located appropriately enough at the top of Broadway (300 South) and 1400 East. A fully professional theatre in residence at the University of Utah, Pioneer Theatre Company produces a seven-play season running from September through May, including a mixture of classics, large-scale musicals and contemporary dramas and comedies. Over the past ten years the theatre has developed a reputation for Broadway-quality productions, particularly in its mounting of major musicals such as Into the Woods, Man of La Mancha, Cabaret and Ragtime as well as classics and adaptations like The Three Musketeers, A Tale of Two Cities, Peer Gynt and The Grapes of Wrath. The theatre has also been the first in Utah to produce important works by contemporary playwrights such as August Wilson's Fences, Tom Stoppard's Arcadia, David Auburn's Proof and Wendy Wasserstein's An American Daughter.
Single ticket prices for the current season range from $20 to $49, with the best seats in the 932 seat house in the orchestra and loge. Showtimes are: Monday - Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:00 p.m., and Saturday matinees at 2:00 p.m. Parking is free and available in adjacent parking lots.
Salt Lake Acting Company
Salt Lake Acting Company (SLAC) is a gathering place, a space created to celebrate the collective imagination and encourage the exchange of ideas. They present innovative and thought-provoking plays for Utah audiences. They nurture and employ a community of local professional theatre artists. And, they contribute to the American theatre through commissioning, developing and producing new plays.
Kingsbury Hall at the University of Utah
Kingsbury Hall's upcoming season brings a world of excellence and dazzling variety to our landmark performing arts center on the University of Utah campus. Plan to be thoroughly entertained and sometimes challenged with wit and wisdom, soaring music, dance, and some foot stomping fun. We're talking something for everyone, from the original musings of NPR's Ira Glass to cowboy music legends Riders in the Sky and the legendary grace and brilliance of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater on their 50th Anniversary Tour. Ten of our 16 performances this season are family-friendly, so bring the whole family and experience world-class entertainment!
