For the first few years of our marriage, we were season ticket holders at one of the local community theaters. Those dates when we would grab dinner and then sit down to watch a show together were some of my favorites and being season ticket holders meant that we had six date nights already planned for us each year. When we started to miss more than one show a year due to our schedules or things that came up with the kids, we decided it was time to set aside our regular theater attendance until we hit the next stage of life.
I miss those dates and getting to see musicals on a regular basis, but we still make an effort to attend one or two shows a year at the local performing arts centers. Davis County has three different performing arts centers where you can go to enjoy local talent in one of your favorite musicals or plays. They are all great places run by amazing people who have a goal to keep music and the arts alive in our community. They would all make a great addition to your next date night!

There are a few cities in Davis County that put together their own community shows throughout the year; Farmington is one of them. Other cities only put on one show of their own each year, generally in the summer. We try to put those on our Upcoming Events page when we find out about them, so keep an eye on that in the coming year if you’re looking for a fun show to go to and want to support the local community arts.
