Salt Lake’s major regional theatre is located appropriately enough at the top of Broadway (300 South) and 1400 East. A fully professional theatre in residence at the University of Utah, Pioneer Theatre Company produces a seven-play season running from September through May, including a mixture of classics, large-scale musicals and contemporary dramas and comedies.
Over the past ten years the theatre has developed a reputation for Broadway-quality productions, including mounting Utah premieres as well as regional theatre premieres. Notably, Pioneer Theatre Company was the first regional theatre in the country to earn the rights to produce Les Misérables, the closing musical of the 2006-2007 season. Running for a record 82 sold out performances, Les Misérables cemented PTC’s reputation as a theatre capable of producing large scale, difficult productions.
