The Eccles Theater and Salt Lake County Arts & Culture named The Sting & Honey Company as the first Resident organization in the Regent Street Black Box. 

“We believe the theater should be a place of creation, beauty, and awe,” said Javen Tanner, Artistic Director of Sting & Honey Company. “We achieve this ideal by providing an environment where artists and audiences can open themselves to that transcendence peculiar to live theater.”

“The intimacy of the Regent Street Black Box provides the perfect environment for our patrons and performers to immerse themselves in our work,” Tanner continued. “We are pleased to call the theater our permanent home.”

Sting & Honey Company offers the community a unique theater experience, with a focus on the great plays of the theatrical canon, as well as annual offerings for families and children.

“We are dedicated to building deep and engaging connections and dialogue around the arts and culture in our community,” said Angela Vanderwell, Eccles Theater General Manager. “Sting & Honey offers exceptional productions that contribute to that dialogue.  Our contribution is to provide the spaces and services for organizations like the Sting & Honey Company to perform and contribute to the artistic community.”

Salt Lake County’s Arts & Culture Residency program provides direct support to several of Utah’s finest performing arts organizations. Residents receive priority booking, dedicated rehearsal space, and some have on-site office and storage spaces. This stability allows Residents to focus on artistic excellence, creative expression, audience development, and organizational growth.
