Kingsbury Hall has been a full performance theatre in Salt Lake City, Utah for more than 75 years. The exquisite space is home to many aspects of theatre activity, from educational performances for youth to international quality productions. The venue welcomes 200,000 visitors per year and operates as a nonprofit organization. The hall was renovated in 1996 under the direction of architect Don Mahoney, who is now a partner architect with Building God’s Way. The exterior restoration was accompanied by the design and construction of a new stage and support facilities.

The architecture, gold accents and rich history display the uniqueness of this project. The versatile auditorium has a seating capacity of more than 1900 with 730 in the balcony. The full orchestra pit and performance lighting has made Kingsbury Hall the place for performances (musical and theatrical) for decades.
