LOGAN – There have been a lot of setbacks along the way, but after almost nine years the renovation of Logan’s Historic Utah Theatre is nearing completion. In fact, Gary Griffin, Utah Festival opera’s managing director said the seats are being moved into the building today.
“The tile work is all done, the painting is all done,” he said. “About the only thing we’ve got left to do after the seats go in is to put the carpet down and clean the place up. There are a few more audio-visual things that need to be put in, but we’ll be done in the very near future and have a wonderful opening that we’ll announce later.”
Griffin said the old building turned out to be in much worse shape than expected and creating a space for the prized Wurlitzer organ was another challenge. He said it won’t be long before the building is used as another beautiful theater where a wide variety of productions will be enjoyed.
