On February 13, 1990 a group of dedicated volunteers met with the Bluffdale City Council and proposed the city sponsor an arts organization to:
FOSTER COMMUNITY PRIDE AND UNITY,
GOOD, CLEAN FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT,
EXPAND THE TALENTS OF OUR CITIZENS
and BRING QUALITY ARTS TO OUR AREA
AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE.
Bluffdale’s population was then about 1800. There was one city building — a combined fire station/city hall — and only one “visible” business — a gas station that didn’t even sell gas! Our first show, Oklahoma, was performed in our “Firehouse Theatre”, made possible by driving out the trucks in the station garage and setting up a portable stage for the “Hottest Show in Town”.
Twenty six years, and over 40 productions later, we are still here, thanks to the support of our community and the many volunteers that make miracles happen.
BAAB Members meet together every other month.
All meeting agendas and minutes are available through Bluffdale City at (801) 254-2200 or www.bluffdale.com.
Many of our projects are made possible through grants from the Utah Arts Council, The National Endowment for the Arts, and ZAP – Zoo Arts Park funding.
