Program 2

The George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Center for the Performing Arts

We bring performing arts from the international stage to the Park City stage, for the illumination of residents and visitors alike.

• This season alone, we will present Boz Scaggs, All Wheel Sports, Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet, Bernadette Peters, Garrison Keillor, Puppet Up Uncensored, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Trey McIntyre Project, Celtic Nights, Nellie McKay with Turtle Island Quartet, Jessica Lang Dance Company and Jon Batiste. We have already seen Griffin Theatre's Letters Home and Imago Theatre's Zoozoo, both receiving rave reviews and broad community support.
• Our fourteen performances this year are guaranteed to make you laugh and cry and elevate your spirit. Our season includes dance, theatre, music, family attractions and amazing spectacles.

We sell tickets and sponsorships to all our events so that we can honor our mission give tickets to the underserved. 20% of our audiences are subsidized, including:

• Summit County senior citizens; Treasure Mountain Middle School Leadership class; Latinos in Action; Peace House clients; local police and firefighters, Holy Cross Ministries clients; bus drivers and snow plow drivers and more, so much more.

We bring nationally recognized performers into the classroom to mentor and inspire our local students and their teachers.

• Every act costs us more because we pay larger fees to have them participate in teaching activities, for multiple days which require increased accommodations, food and transportation.
