Built in 1930, historic Kingsbury Hall was the birthplace for many of Utah’s premier performing arts organizations including Ballet West, The Utah Opera, Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company and Repertory Dance Theatre.
Kingsbury Hall serves its dual mission as a university and community performance venue by presenting a robust slate of national touring productions as well as showcasing productions by students in the College of Fine Arts; over 180 performances annually take place in its 1900 seat auditorium.
In 2007, Kingsbury Hall and Salt Lake City School District were selected as the first and only Utah team to join the prestigious John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Partners in Education Program. Located on Presidents Circle next to the School of Music, Kingsbury Hall is on the National Register of Historic Sites and is one of the most widely recognized public buildings in the state of Utah. In 1995, it was completely renovated for the Utah Statehood Centennial Celebration.
The Performing Arts Ticket Office is located on the southeast corner of Kingsbury Hall adjacent to the plaza steps. It directly services five performing arts venues on the University of Utah campus: Kingsbury Hall, Gardner Hall, the Marriot Center for Dance, Babcock Theater and the Lab Theater.
