Built in 1926 shortly after the discovery of King Tutankhamen's tomb, the Egyptian Theatre is a replica of Wamer's Egyptian Theatre in Pasadena, California and is one of only two Egyptian-revival buildings in Utah. The theatre was originally designed to accommodate "talkies" and traveling vaudeville shows.
Each season, Egyptian Theatre Company's four show Mainstage Season and two show Family Season are enjoyed by 30,000 patrons. Additionally, ETC's Youtheatre program offers theatrical training for preschool through high school age students. In June of 2000, ETC signed an agreement with Actor's Equity Association, becoming one of only four fully professional theatre companies in Utah.
