Oracle Theatre
Ogden, Utah

Following the success of the New Electric Theatre, Charles Ziemer, H. A. Sims, and Albert Scowcroft opened Oracle Theatre on Washington Avenue.   Stanley B. Steck acquired the Oracle in April 1917 and changed the name to Cozy Theatre.   Harmon Peery of the Ogden Theatre Company took over management when Steck sold the business in 1923.   A few days later, A. M. Miller purchased the building and announced plans to replace the theater with a modern store once the lease expired.  Two years later, theater was “made vacant” and a remodeling permit was issued.

Beverly Olsen opened the Terrace Plaza Playhouse in November 1992 with three separate productions, Scrooge, Babes in Toyland, and The Wondrous Night.  Olsen and her partners spent $300,000 remodeling a Smiths supermarket that had sat vacant for five years into a 315-seat theater with a thrust stage.  The theater was named after Washington Terrace, the southern Ogden suburb in which it is located.  Partners for the non-profit theater were Blaine and Beverly Olsen of Fruit Heights, Kim and Jacci Florence of Layton, Joseph and Tami Olsen of South Ogden, and Rob and Patti Johnson of Sandy.  Plans for the project included a year-round acting school and a mini-mall in the remainder of the building.[1]
