Proscenium
Sandy, Utah

Scott McQuarrie, a Utah County developer, approached Sandy City in 2006 about building a 2,400-seat Broadway theater southwest of City Hall.  The development was named “The Proscenium”, after the Greek innovation to better frame theater performances.  The announcement created a rivalry between Sandy and Salt Lake City, which had also had plans for a Broadway theater.  Funding for the Proscenium dried up after the credit market tumbled in late 2008.

Keith and Jody Renstrom started the Valley Center Playhouse in 1975 after moving to Utah from California.  They rented buildings in downtown Provo and Orem before purchasing the Lindon location in 1984.|1|

"There needed to be a family theater in this area," said Jody Renstrom.  "Our main goal is to provide wholesome entertainment. We have always screened every play and nothing is ever offensive."|1|

At the second annual Star Awards, a black-tie gala fundraiser benefits the SCERA, Keith and Jody Renstrom received a lifetime achievement award.|2|
