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.

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.
