New Shakespeare Theatre
Cedar City, Utah

On 16 February 2012, the Utah Shakespeare Festival announced plans to build a $26.5 million Shakespeare theater on 200 West, between Center Street and College Avenue.  The new 900-seat theater will feature amenities missing from the current Adams Memorial Shakespearean Theatre, such as public restrooms and a backstage area.  A retractable roof will expand the season and allow for possible year-round usage.  The playhouse will allow for additional performances, which will draw an additional 30,000 patrons to Cedar City and increase the economic impact of the Festival by an estimated $8 million annually.

Roberts' Hall was built by Ephraim Roberts as a crockery factory. When the venture was unsuccessful, the building was converted into an amusement hall. Music for dances was provided by violin, guitar, cornet, or organ. The hall was also used for showing motion pictures and other events.[1]
