Aberdeen, Idaho has a population of just around 2,000 people. Even though it is small, the town has invested great sums in a new performance art structure. It is a 396-seat auditorium, a practice gym, and an ag/vo-tech shop. This wonderful new facility is the Aberdeen Performing Arts Center or also known as the Wayne Millett Theater in honor of Wayne Millett, the school district’s performing arts teacher. Millett has taught band and choir, guitar, a musical class and a stage crafts class in grades 6-12 since coming to the town in 1990. His service has endeared him to the students so much so that it was them that petitioned to name the facility after the teacher. What does this have to do with the Uintah Basin? Wayne Millett grew up in Roosevelt, Utah and after graduating college taught choir for seven years in Vernal before moving on to spread his love of the arts in quaint Aberdeen.
