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 Pages Lane Theater was established in 1991 by Ralph Rodgers, who previoulsy had managed the Promised Valley Playhouse in Salt Lake City and the Polynesian Cultural Center in Hawaii.

After Ralph Rodgers died in 1996 the Rodgers family donated the theater to the Davis County Performing Arts Corporation, a non-profit group led by real estate developer Bill Davies. The theater reopened in 1997 as the Rodgers Memorial Theatre.

Rodgers Memorial Theatre has experienced "phenomenal growth" because of "increased performances, interior upgrades and popular productions" and "community donations of time and money". The theater hopes to move to a larger facility.
