SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Once its holiday productions are over, a Salt Lake City community theater will have to find a new home.
But the Academy of Performing Arts -- a 13-year-old nonprofit -- may find a temporary home in South Salt Lake.
Developer Steve Aste is offering the academy some warehouse space at a reduced lease rate. The academy would have to raise money to build a theater inside.
The warehouse is scheduled to be torn down in about two years for a new development. But Aste says he's willing to build a permanent theater nearby if the academy shows it will have enough money to pay for a long-term lease.
Meanwhile, the troupe is focused on another project: staging "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" at Salt Lake City's Sorenson Unity Center.
