Who We Are

HISTORY

CenterPoint’s legacy began with the arrival of the first pioneers in the Davis County area and continued through the creation of Ralph Rodger’s Pages Lane Theater founded in 1990 and then the Davis County Performing Arts Corporation in 1996. With the success of the small Rodgers Memorial venue and the support of our Davis County community, a case was made for a regional performing arts center, which resulted in our current home, the Davis Center for the Performing Arts.


FACILITY AMENITIES

CenterPoint Legacy Theatre is housed in a 62,000 square foot, multi-venue theater facility, located in Centerville UT. The facility contains a main stage theater inclusiveof a Gala Lift, an intimate black box theater, and various support spaces such as rehearsal halls, dressing rooms, and set/costume construction areas.

Each year, we provide performance opportunities for over 500 local performers who share their talent with over 100,000 patrons.
