Our New Theatre
Opening in February 2011, CenterPoint Legacy Theatre is bringing Broadway Magic, Utah Style to the Wasatch Front. We are located at the center point between Sandy and Ogden, just off the Legacy Parkway and I-15 in Centerville, Utah. Don’t miss any of our exciting premiere season shows! Beginning with the Musical Hairspray on Valentine’s Day!
Hairspray is a musical with music by Marc Shaiman, lyrics by Scott Wittman and Shaiman and a book by Mark O’Donnell and Thomas Meehan, based on the 1988 John Waters film Hairspray. The songs include 1960s-style dance music and “downtown” rhythm and blues. In 1962 Baltimore, Maryland, plump teenager Tracy Turnblad’s dream is to dance on The Corny Collins Show, a local TV dance program based on the real-life Buddy Deane Show. When Tracy wins a role on the show, she becomes a celebrity overnight. She then launches a campaign to integrate the show. Hairspray is a social commentary on the injustices of parts of American society in the 1960s
The musical’s original Broadway production opened on August 15, 2002 and won eight Tony Awards out of thirteen nominations. It ran for over 2,500 performances and closed on January 4, 2009. Hairspray has also had U.S. national tours, a London West End production and numerous foreign productions and was adapted for a 2007 musical film. The London production was nominated for a record-setting eleven Laurence Olivier Awards, winning for Best New Musical and in three other categories.

Called by The New York Times “a tonic for adults, and for children a transfixing journey,” this spectacular musical extravaganza ran for ten years at Madison Square Garden, complete with falling snow, exuberant dances by famed choreographer Susan Stroman, flying ghosts and a magnificent set which recreated the streets, graveyards, homes and buildings of Dickensian London. In 2004, this version became the basis of an NBC Hallmark Entertainment special (teleplay adaptation by Lynn Ahrens) featuring Kelsey Grammer as Scrooge, and an array of stars including Jason Alexander, Jesse L. Martin, Jane Krakowski, Geraldine Chaplin, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Ruthie Henshall.
Based on the characters and intrigue of the ever-popular board game, this madcap murder mystery brings Miss Peacock, Colonel Mustard, and the rest of the colorful gang to life. It’s all here–a spooky mansion, lots of bodies, suspects-a-plenty, ghastly murder weapons and an entertaining ensemble cast to die for.
