If you are a history buff, you should remember the three Andrew Sisters shows in the ‘40s and ‘50s era. If you liked their music, you will like the signature sound of the three Benson Sisters who absolutely love to sing and dance to the music of the 40’s, 50’s and beyond.
The Benson sisters write, “We love to get our audience laughin’ and dancin’ in the isles as we recreate the Andrew Sisters from World War II.”
Enjoy the music, the food, as well as the opportunity to take a close up look at actual WWII artifacts displayed by the Utah Military History Group, including a great photo op with a WWII Jeep. It’s taking a step back in time.

The Geary Then and Now
Blending the old with the new, the Geary Event Center, originally completed in 1961, underwent a multi-million dollar refurbishment, and is now the premier event center in the region, boasting a full LED house, state-of-the-art sound, and a modern interior and seating, the Geary Event Center truly is the jewel of Eastern Utah.
The Geary Event Center was named for Professor Elmo Geary, who taught speech, debate, and theatre from 1951 until his death in 1961. Professor Geary was the driving force in getting the Geary Event Center built. His legacy, the program, and this building continue to be a vital part of USU Eastern and our culture.
