The Ellen Eccles is turning 100!
Opening in March 1923 as the Capitol Theatre, the Ellen Eccles Theatre has now been a staple of downtown Logan for a century! From vaudeville to film to local groups, the theatre has hosted many memorable events and people, including Abbott and Costello, John Philip Sousa, and the Marx Brothers. Thanks to the renovation efforts during 1989-1993 and the capital campaign in 2018, the Ellen Eccles Theatre continues to host world-class entertainment for Cache Valley.
For our 100th anniversary, we have a new campaign to help the theatre continue to serve the artists and patrons that pass through its walls:
The green room is located beneath the stage and shares space with the orchestra pit. This space is meant to provide a place for performing artists to relax and eat before, during, and after performances. While this space serves its purpose well, we are hoping to renovate it, making it even more welcoming. From new flooring to a small kitchenette, the green room will soon look even better with your help!
Those who donate $100 for this campaign will receive our brand new Ellen Eccles Theatre ornament as a thank you. This offer is limited to the first 100 people.
