The LDS Church opened the Fountain Green Theatre and Dance Hall in 1918 and for decades it was the heart of the community. In 1944 the building was sold to Ivin Rasmussen, who continued to operate the recreation center until 1950, when television changed the way people spent their evenings. Rasmussen converted the dance hall into a general store, but the building sat vacant for 30 years after the store closed in 1976. His descendants donated the building to the city in 1998 and the restored community center reopened on Memorial Day weekend 2004.
The Lagoon Opera House opened in 1968, presenting summer theater shows such as "Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat", "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum", and other Broadway hits.1 The theater is part of the Lagoon amusement park, but has not been used in recent years. Most of Lagoon's entertainment shows are presented in the Music USA Theatre and the Carousel Theatre, both of which are newer and more open than the Lagoon Opera House.
