I wrote a feature about a play in Sandy:
The Hale Centre Theatre in West Valley City has moved to Sandy, and almost all the bags and boxes are officially unpacked.
The West Valley location, where the company lived for nearly 20 years, will close after the last performance of “A Bundle of Trouble” on Dec. 1. The new venue — which, at 133,306 square feet, is nearly three times the size of the old one — has been partially open since September, with “Forever Plaid” playing at the Jewel Box stage.
Friday, the larger of the venue’s two new stages — called the Centre Stage — will open with the Elton John/Tim Rice musical “Aida,” directed by Dave Tinney.
City officials in West Valley were disappointed when the theater announced that it would relocate, according to reporting in the Salt Lake Tribune in 2013, but Sandy City has welcomed the move with open arms (and open wallets), investing $42.7 million for the $80 million project with a bond that the theater plans to pay back over the course of the lease. Sandy City owns the theater.
