Our History

About Us

In 1934, Nathan and Ruth Hale were asked by their church leader to put on a play. They found one that had a $25 royalty—but $25 was more money than was in the church activity budget for an entire year. “Write one,” they were told. They did and launched a life-time of entertaining millions and a legacy that lives on.

In the early 30’s the Hales traveled with their ‘acting troupe’ to theatres all around Utah. They wrote more and performed more. In 1944 their adventures took them and their children to Southern California so that Nate could get in the movies. Finally, they decided to start a theatre of their own in Glendale, California in a little house that seated 99. They arranged the seats around the room—and voilà—their signature theater-in-the-round began. The theatre sold-out regularly so they brought on help—their oldest daughter Sandra and her husband Allan Dietlein became business partners. They built a new theatre of 220 seats. Both theatres sold-out. They built a third theatre of 440 seats. Still operating today, The Glendale Centre Theatre is an icon.

In their 70’s and after authoring more than 80 plays and musicals—many published—Nathan and Ruth thought it time to retire. They moved back to Utah, recovered a couch and braided a rug. They found retirement makes you sick. What to do? Start a new theatre in Utah. 

So, in 1985 they found an old lingerie factory in South Salt Lake, UT and asked their daughter Sally Hale Rice and their oldest grandson, Mark Dietlein and his wife (also Sally) to join in a partnership. The Hale Centre Theatre began! The original 220 seats began selling-out in just over a year. 

A wall was knocked out and new seats were added. 350 seats sold-out in no time and a balcony (of sorts) took HCT to 387. Sell-outs again. Out of seats and out of parking, the theatre began to look for a new home. A change from a for profit business to a 501c3 non profit was necessary to build a bigger theatre and provide more community outreach. 

In 1998, West Valley City, UT partnered to build a beautiful new, magical facility with a moving stage. The gorgeous new building boasted 530 seats and state-of-the-art theatrical technology. In 2004 the theatre again began to burst at the seams. A wall was knocked out and seats were added to 613. Patrons filled the house. Up to 16 performances weekly on one stage became the norm. Out of seats and out of parking. What to do?

With the passing of beloved Nathan and Ruth Hale and also beautiful, Sally Hale Rice, Mark and Sally Dietlein and a powerful Board of Trustees moved forward. A new partnership was formed with Sandy City, UT and a theatrical miracle was designed and built. 

The Hale Centre Theatre at the Mountain America Performing Arts Centre opened its doors in November, 2017. With two stages and plenty of attached free-parking, the theatre was built for growth. The new, Young Living Centre Stage seats 911 in the most technological theatrical space in the world. The Sorenson Legacy Jewel Box Stage comfortably seats 467 in a proscenium thrust style—also bursting with special effects. Well over 560,000 patrons enjoyed plays and musicals at HCT in its first full year of operation and audiences are growing.

It has been an amazing ride over 35 years! We are grateful to millions of extraordinary patrons, thousands of actors, hundreds of co-workers and dazzling creatives. We are grateful to have shared a legacy with Grandma and Grandpa Hale and dear, Sally Hale Rice, as this marvelous theatrical adventure continues on. 

We, the Board of Trustees, along with 72 full-time, 150 part-time employees and almost 500 actors each year want to thank you for your trust in allowing us to entertain you!
