In the summer, plays are performed by High Valley Arts in a beautiful outdoor theater, under the majestic shadow of Mount Timpanogos. Or, if you prefer indoor performances, the historic Social Hall houses the performances of Timpanogos Valley Theater. Discover history in one of the local museums or browse through galleries to find the best local artists, photographers and designers.
