“Promised Valley Playhouse Dedicated,” Ensign, Oct. 1972, 80
Declared a State Historic Site by the Utah Historical Society, the Promised Valley Playhouse opened its doors in Salt Lake City this summer with the annual presentation of Promised Valley, the musical version of the Mormon pioneer movement.
The Playhouse, originally constructed at the turn of the century, has been acquired by the Church and restored to its early-day splendor.
Dedicated by President Marion G. Romney, the theater will house the pioneer drama as well as many other entertainment events. Promised Valley has been a summer outdoor attraction for many years, but its new home provides a setting for many technical effects impossible with the open-air stage.
