Hale Centre Theatre: Tour, Dinner & School of Rock Musical

Wednesday, May 4, 2022 • 5:00 PM - 9:30 PM
Bus Departs: 4:30 PM

Theaters are workplaces that present unique hazards for performers and supporting crew. During this tour, Hale Centre Theatre’s safety expert will show you the best practices of theatrical safety.
It should be noted that Hale Theatre is just not any performing arts building. Structure Magazine calls it “Truly One of a Kind.”
Its centrally located round stage features seating radiating concentrically outward, with each row increasing in diameter. The stage also revolves, providing for 20 feet of vertical travel. Radiused suspended seating, perhaps the most distinctive feature of the design, allows for slip stages to retract below the seating on opposing sides. When patrons experience a show at Hale Centre Theatre’s center stage, the viewing angle is 360-degrees.
Tour one of the jewels of Salt Lake City, then enjoy dinner and School of Rock, a charming musical about an unemployed rock star posing a teacher who leads a group of fifth graders to the Battle of the Bands.
Site Visit Learning Objectives:
  • Learn what Hale Theatre does to ensure worker safety
  • Hear about the unique design features of the theatre and what it took to construct
  • Understand the unique safety features of the theatre
