Tuacahn Amphitheatre and Center for the Arts is a nonprofit arts organization nestled in the mouth of Padre Canyon below towering 1500 foot red sandstone cliffs in Ivins, Utah adjacent to Snow Canyon State Park. The 42,000 square foot facility was completed in 1995 and includes a 1920 seat outdoor amphitheater, a 330 seat indoor theater, a dance studio, a black-box theater, a recital hall, a costume shop and scene shop, studios, classrooms, and a gift shop. Tuacahn presents professional large-scale musical theater productions as part of the annual "Broadway in the Desert" series. The center also presents The Festival of Lights with Live Nativity during the holiday season as well as a spring and fall concert series.

Next time you're in the St. George area, make time to attend a production or concert in this beautiful venue! If you don't have time for that, be sure to head on up the road into Tuacahn after stamping in and take a look around their lovely grounds.

Directions: Find your way to Tuacahn. As you turn on Tuacahn Drive, go almost .9 miles (it's .5 to the cattle guard), and park on the west side of the road in front of the Gunsight Trailhead. Start up the trail. You are looking for the first large grouping of boulders to your right. Please follow the social trails already in place-- be careful not to step on cryptobiotic soil! Climb up on the boulders to look out over the valley, and you will figure out pretty quick where to find the box.
