2018: Utah Rep’s Season Six

Normally, this page would have teasers for our next productions. But while we have been trying to get the rights to perform “American Psycho” for almost two years–and we were told we were about to be granted them at the time we announced our 2018 season, but the original producers have decided to switch to a different licensing organization and we are on hold again. Because we need to start on the design of such a production about a year before its presentation so that it will meet your expectations, we are postponing “American Psycho” and are re-evaluating the 2018 season.

We’ll let you know through email, social media, and our website as we pin down productions and dates. All season tickets will be honored.

We are also asking for your help so that Utah Rep can continue to perform plays that would not otherwise be seen in Utah. We are proud to have presented 28 productions in just five years. We will continue that tradition this season, not only with “Straight,” but with our other productions soon to be announced.

If you have enjoyed our productions, we’d like you to consider making a contribution to help support Utah Rep. Ticket sales provide only a small portion of the money needed for us to bring you these productions, and while ticket prices have remained consistent, production costs are increasing.

In 2016, ticket sales covered just over 36 percent of our production costs. In 2017, the percentage reduced to just under 26.

In the past, a small number of generous contributors made up this difference, but now we are looking to broaden our support though grants and sponsorships. Last year, we were awarded our first grant from the Salt Lake County Zoo, Arts & Parks (ZAP) Program. (Thank you taxpayers for supporting this wonderful program!)

Individual contributions not only provide support, but are looked to by those considering grants or sponsorships to show that we are providing a valuable service to our community.
As an example of how your contributions can lead to additional support, and to encourage you to contribute, we have received a challenge grant that will match dollar-for-dollar up to $5,000 received by the end of March 2018.

You can make your contribution on our Donate page. You will be listed on our Donors’ page and in future programs. And if you’d like to sponsor a future production, or one of its actors or creative people, please contact us through the Donate page.

Because Utah Rep is an IRS 501(c)(3) organization, your contribution is tax-deductible.
