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.

Steel Magnolias group poster (web)

Sugar Factory Playhouse and West Jordan Theater Arts are proud to present Steel Magnolias September 11-13, 15, and 18-20 at Pioneer Hall (1137 West 7800 South, West Jordan, UT).

Tickets are $8 for general admission and $5 for seniors (60 and older), students with ID, children younger than 12, and groups of 10 or more.  Be sure to follow Sugar Factory Playhouse/WJ Theater Arts on Facebook for ticket giveaways and special discount nights!

Steel Magnolias is a comedy by Robert Harling with moments of emotional poignancy about a group of Southern women that meet in Truvy’s Beauty Parlor to share friendship, bickering, and support as they each go through life’s ups and downs.  The strong, realistic personalities and quick wit of these five women will have you laughing and feeling gratitude for the joys of family and friends.

This show has special meaning for our director, Denise Gull, who recently donated a kidney to a stranger.  Her own personal journey through the decision-making, donation, and healing processes has turned Steel Magnolias into a labor of love for not only Denise, but the entire cast and production staff, too.  We will be gratefully accepting donations for the Kidney Foundation at the door.
