Children's Theatre 237
Salt Lake City, Utah

Since 1985, the Children's Theatre had never obtained a long term lease or owned a building.  After searching for a permanent home for over three years, the Children's Theatre announced in June 2011 the purchase of the Avalon Theatre in South Salt Lake.  The theater's new home will feature a 185-seat auditorium with carpeted aisles, stadium seating, a thrust stage, and 17-foot high ceilings.  For information on how you can help, visit the Children's Theatre website.

The Airdome Theater in Myton was probably an open-air dance hall with a wooden or concrete floor.1  The theater had been vacant for several years when a fire broke out in the town of Myton on 19 June 1915.  After fighting it for four hours, firefighters finally stopped the fire by tearing down the Airdome Theater and removing its combustible materials from the fire's path.2
