Lyceum Theatre
Ogden, Utah

Sawyer and Young opened the Lyceum Theater on 9 November 1903 in a small frame structure which was originally built as a school house.   The auditorium of the Lyceum had a slanted floor with a seating capacity of 250, but “another fifty could be crowded in if necessary.”  The Lyceum closed on 17 July 1910, with demolition beginning the next day, so that a new “thoroughly up-to-date show house” could open on the site in time for the next vaudeville season.

Adams Shakespearean Theatre
Cedar City, Utah

In the early 1960s, business owners worried that the proposed Interstate 15 would divert tourists from Cedar City as they travelled to Zions and Bryce Canyon national parks.  Fred C. Adams, a professor at Southern Utah State College, thought a theater festival might encourage passing tourists to exit the new freeway.  For its first season in 1962, the Utah Shakespeare Festival used a makeshift outdoor platform as a stage, with the audience seated in folding chairs on the lawn.  In 1977, the festival built the Adams Shakespearean Theatre, a replica of the original Globe Theatre.
