With the advent of the railroad, Utah was put on the national stage, but the Salt Lake Theatre became increasingly secularized, as its attractions were effectively controlled by New York booking agencies. As the film industry grew, the Utah State Government aggressively began promoting Utah as a filming location. The company toured extensively and performed plays, including Pygmalion and the Taming of the Shrews, for schools, organisations and communities.
Dubbed the "Cathedral of the Desert," the theater became a flashpoint for the Mormon Church and its followers because it was controlled by Mormons. For a few years there was the LDS musical Promised Valley, which was first produced in 1947.

Smith, sold the theater to Mountain State Telephone and Telegraph for $200,000. In the summer of 1915, the Utah Players Stock Company was founded, performing at the Utah Theatre. By the 1920s, the Moroni Olsen Players had become one of the most popular theater companies in Salt Lake City and were performed in the fall of 1923 by their former student Babcock, who was also studying in the East.
The Deseret Musical and Dramatic Association, to which the Nauvoo brass band belonged, performed in the autumn of 1850. In 1852, the music dramatists "association was renamed the Deserets Dramatistic Association, with Brigham Young as an honorary member.
