Welcome to sugarfactoryplayhouse.com

West Jordan Theater Arts performed quality live theatre at the Sugar Factory Playhouse from June 2004 until the theater was condemned and ultimately demolished in 2010. Although the playhouse is gone, the organization still produces four shows annually at different locations in West Jordan and Midvale. In Spring 2012, the Salt Lake County Library in West Jordan is scheduled to open. This new facility will have an auditorium and an amphiteater. Working in conjuction with Salt Lake County and with West Jordan City, the same people who brought you wonderful productions at the Sugar Factory Playhouse plan on bringing you quality shows at the new library starting in 2012. Meanwhile, watch this website for dates and locations of our upcoming productions and events.

The Nerd poster (website)

Willum leads a safe, comfortable life as an architect with his roommates, the snarky theater critic Axel, and Tansy, whom he wishes was more than just a friend.  Sure, his latest job designing a hotel for blustery and demanding Warnock Waldgrave is a bit stressful, but that’s nothing compared to how crazy Willum’s life becomes when Rick Steadman, the man that saved his life in Vietnam, shows up for a visit.  As hours turn into days, Willum’s patience turns to desperation as he begins to wonder if his career and sanity can survive the antics of the socially stunted and embarrassingly clueless nerd taking over his couch and his life!

Audiences will laugh out loud as Rick turns Willum’s world upside down in Larry Shue’s award-winning and hilarious “The Nerd.”  Full of witty dialogue and featuring a talented cast of performers, “The Nerd” will have audiences rolling in the aisles as Rick pushes Willum’s hospitality to his limits and beyond!  This is one show you don’t want to miss!

Sugar Factory Playhouse and West Jordan Theater Arts present “The Nerd” by Larry Shue April 9-11, 13, and 16-18 at 7:30 p.m. at Pioneer Hall (1140 West 7800 South) in West Jordan.  Tickets are $8 for general admission and $5 for children (12 and under), students (with ID), seniors (60+), and groups of 10 or more.  Tickets will be available at Macey’s grocery store in West Jordan and at the door (cash or check only).  Doors open at 7:00 p.m.  Be sure to visit SugarFactoryPlayhouse.com and like us on Facebook and Twitter for ticket giveaways and promotions!
