“Promised Valley Playhouse to Be Home of Stake, Ward Productions,” Ensign, Sept. 1986, 76
Beginning September 15, the Promised Valley Playhouse in Salt Lake City will be made available primarily to the wards and stakes in the immediate area for the presentation of plays, musicals, and other performing arts events.
The planned 1986–87 performing season has been canceled, according to an announcement issued by the playhouse board of directors. Refunds will be made to those who have already purchased tickets for those events.
“The new emphasis will permit the local development of productions which will be performed in a first-rate facility with appropriate stage, sound, technical, and acoustical support,” the announcement said. “We desire to foster composing and writing as well as performing, all in order that some of the productions might later be made available for use throughout the Church.”
