; Who were the early protagonists of theatre in pioneer Utah? What were some of the most popular plays produced on the boards of Social Hall, Salt Lake Theatre, and the theatrical troupes in other parts of the state of Utah? PIONEER THEATRE IN THE DESERT by Ila Fisher Maughan provides answers to these and innumerabe other questions that may arise concerning pioneer theatre. Salt Lake City was the hub of theatre, as well as of other things in the intermountain west, and had a colorful history in drama as well as in additional activities. Brigham Young, like the Prophet Joseph Smith before him, believed in the efficacy of the theatre s a teacher of good and evil. He felt, too, that wholesome entertainment was essential to cushion the hardships of a pioneer country where people must work hard to wrest a meager living from the barren ground.
