About Us:
Live theatrical performances have long been a centerpiece of Park City culture, even in the rough and tumble days of active mining. In the late 1880's, the impressive sum of $30,000 was raised by subscription to build the ornate Opera House that housed touring companies. On a warm June night in 1898, fire roared from the American Hotel and quickly threatened to consume the town. Despite the assistance of fire companies from as far away as Ogden, most of the town was demolished and the Opera House was gutted.

With the rebirth of Park City as a ski and resort town in the 60's, the Egyptian continued to present live theatre, though old fashioned "meller dramas" were the most consistent fare. In 1978 the buildings architectural integrity was threatened. Preservation of it's distinctive Egyptian feature was achieved in 1981 when the building became home to Park City Performances. Live theatre of all genres began to be presented on the boards of the theatre

The Steiner Egyptian has become a small professional theatre operating under an Actor's Equity Association contract. It is able to function as a state of the art facility while retaining the distinctive flavor of years gone by, much like Park City itself.

Charming, charming show. Well acted and directed. The actors had lovely voices. Especially loved the duet "Never Alone," sung by Nick Morris and Tommy John Holt. Couldn't believe what came out Morris's lungs, wondered if Holt could meet it, and he did. A beautiful vocal pairing, and tenderly acted. The whole show was great fun, and sweet.

We really enjoyed the comedy show in such a beautifully preserved historic theater. Staff were welcoming & helpful upon arrival. Consessions were great. Great show! Also love the lineup for the future. What a gem for your city and a fun thing for visitors to do!

The Egyptian Theater is a true icon of Park City and offers year round first class entertainment in a wonderful intimate environment. The Egyptian is always worth a stop to experience not only great entertainment but also get an authentic taste of Park City.

It's a very nice nostalgic theater. The sound system needs to be replaced. Every concert we have seen there the music has been too loud and you can't hear the vocals.
