Dreamland Theatre
Ogden, Utah

Charles and George Driskell were managers of the Dreamland Theatre on Washington Avenue for most of 1908.   They made improvements to the playhouse in March, including the addition of landscape panels on the walls made by local artists.   In August, the Dreamland added a second projector, eliminating the need for intermissions at reel changes.   A claim by George Driskell that he had “worked with untiring energy” to secure exclusive engagements at the Dreamland provoked a strong response from R. W. Strong with 20th Century Optiscope, who claimed the entire credit for resolving booking conflicts lay with the national Film Service Association.   Two months later, the Dreamland reopened under the management of Fred Tout and Fred Anderson.

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]
