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.

The goal was to provide rewards for all World War II veterans. The act avoided life insurance policy payouts because of political distress caused after the end of World War I. But the Benefits that were included were: Dedicated payments of tuition and living expenses to attend high school, college or vocational/technical school, low-cost mortgages, low-interest loans to start a business, as well as one year of unemployment compensation.
