Rain-Out Policy

Be aware with the covered stage roof, we will continue some shows in the Amphitheater if rain is minimal - so bring an umbrella if needed. If weather is extreme for the audience, we generally will not determine any kind of decision until after 6 P.M. You may call (801) 264-2638 if this situation occurs.

In the event of a "rain-out", tickets can be exchanged at the Parks Office or used at the gate for entrance to another performance of the same show. A "rain-out" is defined as any performance canceled prior to the intermission. If using at the gate, please arrive 30 minutes prior to the show to secure available seating. If you are not able to attend another performance of the rain-out production, you must present your ticket/stub at the Murray Parks Office for another show of equal or lesser value. NO REFUNDS ALLOWED.

History

Formed in 1977, the Murray Arts Council produced their first annual musical, South Pacific, on a temporary stage built in Murray Park in 1980. Through community support and fundraising, the Murray Park Amphitheater was built by 1985. The Amphitheater underwent a remodel in 2016-2017 which included the addition of a roof over the stage, changing rooms and a green room.
