THE GLASS FACTORY THEATRE
Salt Lake Acting Company grew by leaps and bounds during the '80s. SLAC began in 1970 in the First Unitarian Church's Eliot Hall near the University of Utah campus, then presented one production, PIPPIN, in the Shire West Theater (later the home of Walk-Ons, Inc.). When the '80's began, it was struggling along as the Human Ensemble Company in the tiny Glass Factory Theatre space at Arrow Press Square for a couple of seasons. Its current (and most likely permanent) home is the 100-year-old 19th Ward Meeting House, also known as the Marmalade Hill Center, where it enjoys a strong subscription season base and ranks as one of the Mountain West's most important regional theater companies.
