|About||A nonprofit 501 (c)(3) Theatrical Plays & Improv Comedy Shows with Performances on Mon. Fri. & Sat. see www.theOBT.org for times and prices|
The Off Broadway Theatre opened its doors back in 1994 bringing family-friendly parodies, traditional plays, musicals and live improv comedy shows throughout the Wasatch Front. The theatre company started out as a for profit, but in late 2008 decided to take the route of becoming a non-for-profit 501 (c)(3) company.
Our audiences get a chance to see a unique brand of comedy in both the plays and the improv shows throughout the year.
The mission of the Off Broadway Theatre is to enrich the Wasatch Front by inspiring laughter, developing talents, and fostering learning through the creative expression of the theatrical arts and improv comedy. We fulfill this mission by:
• Presenting family-friendly, original parodies, improvisational comedy, and other wholesome entertainment for audiences in our theatre and at local schools, youth organizations, hospitals, etc.;
• Providing opportunities for aspiring playwrights, actors, directors, stage technicians, and volunteers to learn and develop their skills—opportunities rarely found elsewhere in Utah theaters;
• Teaching acting, speaking, and improvisation classes —important, transferable skills for success and self-esteem—to local youth, both at the theatre and at their schools.
