McGregor and Ed Ward, members. Plays were produced in Log Council House and Rock Church until in 1870, when Comedy Hall was erected. In 1897 the Parowan Dramatic Association built a brick Opera House on the site of Comedy Hall. Plays were given in the old building while the new walls were built around it.
