1923 · The Ellen Eccles Theatre

The Ellen Eccles Theater was originally known as the Capitol Theater and was home to different vaudevilles and operas. The Theater later became solely used for community events and movies. In 1988, popular outcry from the public led to the city of Logan purchasing the theater and a not-for-profit organization was formed to renovate and operate it. Fire destroyed much of the theater's annex in 1990 during a restoration attempt by the city. However, the Theater reopened to a gala performance on January 8, 1993. It is used today for performances of the Utah Festival Opera Company along with the Cache Valley Civic Ballet, Music Theater West, Valley Dance Ensemble, Cache Theater Company, and several Utah State University performing groups.

Name Meaning

English and Scottish: from the usual vernacular English form (recorded from the 13th century onward) of the New Testament Greek personal name Andreas . In North America, the English form of the surname has absorbed many cognates from other languages, e.g. Czech Ondřej (see Ondrey ) and Albanian Ndreu , and also their patronymics and other derivatives (see examples at Andrews ).

History: The surname Andrew was first brought to North America from England by Robert Andrew (died 1668), who settled in Boxford, MA.
