The Utah Theater Lover Awards Ballot!

Ballot is Closed – See Nominees HERE!

The Utah Theater Lover awards are 100% audience choice and all done through write in ballot.  Tell us what you loved and then come to the Murray Theater on June 9th to watch the real Tony Awards right along side our own awards ceremony.

  • Vote for you favorites by June 5th at 8:00 pm MDT.
  • The top 5 or 6 will be posted Thursday and the winners will be announced on June 9th during the event.
  • A not-fully-comprehensive list but a valid attempt at listing all productions running from 5/1/2012-4/30/2013 (eligibility dates) can be found here.  If we missed a show, please let us know and we will add it.
  • For more event details and to RSVP – check out our Utah Theater Lovers Meetup Event!
  • If your show is not listed and you would like us to list it, please email

Note:  Any show can be a write in – it does not have to appear on our list. Our list is simply there to assist you in remembering what you saw this year.  Also, what is classified as Professional/Semi-professional vs. Community will be up to the voter.  Typically we suggest that the bigger theaters and/or equity houses fall into the Professional/Semi category.

The Utah Theater Lover Awards Ceremony:

  • Date: June 9th, 6:00 PM
  • Where: Murray Historic Theater
  • Dress: Casual
  • Cost: Free (bring something to share)
  • More Details

Our goal is to make theater and theater events accessible to everyone. Rather than charge for the event and arrange for catering and alcohol service, we thought it would be fun to host this event for friends of Utah Theater Lovers at no cost and ask you to bring some food to share and your own drinks with a cooler (alcohol if you are of age and would like to drink). This means that to gain entrance to the party, you must bring a food item to share. So, when you RSVP (please join and RSVP so we can get a good head count for tables and chairs), please indicate what you will be bringing to share in addition to how many people will be joining you.


  • Anything from Costco 🙂
  • Pizza
  • Chicken Wings
  • Tacos
  • Salads
  • Popcorn
  • Veggie Trays
  • Yummy appetizers (please avoid everyone bringing a bag of chips)
  • Deli Trays
  • Bucket of Chicken
  • You get the idea….

Consider posting what you are bringing in the comments on Meetup or Facebook so others can get an idea of what is covered.

Did we mention we have prizes from Broadway Across America, Pioneer Theater, Salt Lake Acting Company, Plan-B, Silver Summit, Utah Rep, Egyptian and The Grand?
