The Covey Center for the Arts was built to enrich the lives of Utah Valley residents, provide educational and creative development opportunities for all ages, provide first-class entertainment appropriate for youth and families, and share the opportunity to endow all that is good in the arts for generations to come. This beautiful facility named for Sandra Merrill Covey is located on Center Street in Downtown Provo.
Constructed in 2007, the Covey Center for the Arts is a 42,000 sq. foot premiere performance rental facility. It boasts a 670-seat performance hall, three dance studios furnished with a piano, ballet bars and walled mirrors, a 100-seat black box theater, three art galleries, state-of-the-art sound system, full theatrical lighting, 75-ft. theatrical fly, two backstage green rooms with make-up mirrors, and a full orchestra pit.
In addition to serving the community, the Covey Center has had the pleasure of hosting some of these internationally known performers: Kenny Loggins, George Winston, STOMP, David Lanz, Michael Ballam, The Beach Boys, Ryan Shupe & the Rubberband, The Oak Ridge Boys, Kurt Bestor, Styx, and Foreigner.
