Salt Lake Acting Company has joined other theatre companies and businesses around the globe in postponing our upcoming offerings as a response to COVID-19. Please note that these are subject to change depending on further developments surrounding our current world health situation.

  • Our limited engagement of FOUR WOMEN TALKING ABOUT THE MAN UNDER THE SHEET by Elaine Jarvik, initially scheduled for March 12-22nd, has been moved to this July. The world premiere comedy will now be seen in our Chapel Theatre and has been extended to a run of 18 performances (instead of the initially scheduled 10). The exact dates will be made public in the coming weeks. 
  • The Utah premiere of Sarah Ruhl’s HOW TO TRANSCEND A HAPPY MARRIAGE, which was in rehearsals up until last week and was to begin performances April 8th, has been moved to spring 2021. The entire cast and creative team look forward to bringing this production to SLAC audiences as part of the theatre’s historic 50th season.

In the meantime, everyone at SLAC wishes health and safety to our patrons and local community.

In response to recent developments surrounding COVID-19 and for the health and well-being of our patrons, we have decided to postpone our production of FOUR WOMEN TALKING ABOUT THE MAN UNDER THE SHEET by Elaine Jarvik. We will continue to monitor the situation and will be announcing new dates shortly.

“For those of us who have been fortunate enough to be involved with FOUR WOMEN TALKING ABOUT THE MAN UNDER THE SHEET, the decision to postpone is the right one,” said Executive Artistic Director Cynthia Fleming. “We want our audiences to enjoy this new work, to laugh at its wit, and to hear its timely messages free of the stress of our current health situation. We wish everyone safety, good health and we look forward to sharing our space with you again very soon.”
