Midvale Performing Arts Center
The MPAC was built in the 1930s and served as Midvale City Hall and the Police Station. The building sat vacant for several years thereafter but underwent extensive remodeling in 2004 and was converted to the Midvale Performing Arts and Community Center (MPAC). MPAC was dedicated on June 26, 2004 by Mayor JoAnn Seghini.
At present, the MPAC houses an auditorium upstairs, with the downstairs being used for office space, a conference room, dressing rooms, restrooms, a prop room, and a green room/meeting room. The upstairs auditorium is used primarily for arts programs (theater productions, concerts, receptions, etc.) and has permanent seating of 110, with a raised floor at the back of the auditorium that is used for overflow seating and sound/lighting equipment setup. The Arts Council partners with other groups in using the auditorium on a regular basis. Additionally, the auditorium is available for rental to the community for recitals and other performances.
Parking in the back of MPAC is limited but there are plenty of public parking spaces within a reasonably short walk from the theater. For parking guidelines, please click on the map image below.
Outdoor Stage in the Park
The outdoor facility is a basic amphitheater in Midvale City Park that is surrounded by a large grass seating area/park grounds. The amphitheater was built in 1998 and is a concrete stage with an aluminum roof. Two small dressing rooms are located behind the stage. The facility is available for use from May to August and must be scheduled by emailing the Midvale Arts Administrator.
Thanks to Salt Lake County Cultural Facilities Support, Midvale City received grant money to conduct a feasibility study on upgrades to the Outdoor Stage in the Park. This study was just finished and we will be starting a Capital Campaign to raise money to achieve some of these upgrades. While the stage has served Midvale City well for many years, there are things that could be done to improve the space for both patrons and performers. Here is a look at some renderings on the possibilities for improvement. If you would like to help make this a reality donate now.
