This theatre was built in 1913 by the Thatchers, a locally prominent family who loved plays and operas. A wing was added in 2001, and the building was beautifully refurbished. A ghost that is partial to Shakespeare is said to haunt the theatre. Actors who have worked here claim that the ghost has been heard laughing during rehearsals of Hamlet. The Lyric is home to many performances during the year and is especially loved for its summer repertory series run by the Utah State University Theatre Department.
