Nine years after the Utah Festival Opera and Musical Theatre Company purchased the abandoned Utah Theater in downtown Logan, the theater is almost ready to re-open for cultural events.

There were construction complications along the way but Gary Griffin, operations manager, says the public will be extremely impressed with the beauty of the renovated theater.

Griffin says it will not be long before it is available for use because the final touches are underway.

“The people that are voicing the organ and getting that all set and ready are here,” says Griffin. “So that will be up and operating. We’re going to start rehearsals for Peter Pan.

“We’ll have our first performance of that on June 24th. Tickets are on sale now at the box office, you can come in and get them. It should be a great season.”

Griffin says the company’s founding director, Michael Ballam, will be playing the role of Captain Hook while Peter Pan will be played by Adam Biner. He says the Utah Theatre will be opened for the public to tour prior to the production.
