Celebrate the Stage at these Beloved Theaters in Orem

Do you love the thrill of the theater and want to enjoy more plays and musicals? These two beloved theaters near our apartments in Orem offer engaging productions throughout the year.

SCERA Center for the Arts

The SCERA Center for the Arts is a historic institution, first opening its doors in 1941. The complex hosts two different areas and each is packed full of various performances, including plays, musicals, concerts, and exhibitions.

The first is an indoor theater space, with multiple rooms, stages, and studios for teaching classes. An indoor performance season runs from September to May each year in the largest portion of the building, the 450-seat Showhouse Theater.

The second is the wildly popular SCERA Shell Outdoor Theater. With the mountains as your backdrop, you can bring blankets and enjoy festival style seating for the theater's robust summer season. A section of lawn chairs is also available closer to the stage. Musicals, concerts, and outdoor movies dominate the summer lineup. Tickets are available per event or you can purchase season passes.

You can visit the SCERA Center for the Arts at 745 South State.

Hale Center Theater

In 1933, Nathan and Ruth Hale married and spent their lives writing and producing plays for their local community theater. They opened their first theater in 1947 in California and, after instilling a love of the stage in their progeny, joined with their grandchildren to open a theater in Utah in 1985.

In 2007, Nathan and Ruth's son and grandson opened a branch in Orem of the now infamous Hale Center Theaters.

The theater features a unique round stage, which allows audience members to surround the action. Seating also leads directly to the stage platform. Hale Center Theater is especially known for its professional costuming and even rents out the costumes to interested parties.

Hale Center Theater in Orem produces high-quality plays and musicals year round. Tickets are available per event or you can purchase season passes.

You can visit Hale Center Theater at 225 W 400 N.
