Notice something Different?

Dear Fifth Goat supporters,

We have decided that a re-branding was in order to appropriately reflect the company as it stands moving forward. While Fifth Goat once represented the production company, it is no longer fitting for those actively involved. We are excited to announce our new company name: MAD KING PRODUCTIONS.

Our company goals, expectations, and standards to provide accessible theater to our Salt Lake City patrons remains, as always, our upmost priority. Our Drunk Shakespeare series is set to continue in 2021, and new original works are underway. We thank you all for your continued support and look forward to many successful productions in the future.
