UTAH SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL

The Tony Award winning Utah Shakespeare Festival is here! We all think, “It just can’t get any better”. But it does. There are nine different plays, from the end of June until the middle of October. There are Greenshows, backstage tours, seminars and much more, to get you started.

The Summer Festival offers six plays in two grand theaters: the outdoor Adams Shakespearean Theatre, which is a replica of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and features only Shakespeare plays; and the indoor Randall L Jones Theatre, a modern facility that features contemporary works. In the summer the Festival offers free nightly Greenshow performances featuring music, song, and comedic tales and entertainment on the outdoor stage.

The Fall Festival offers three plays, free actor, literary and prop seminars, backstage tours and play orientation before all shows.

This year, Macbeth, The Merchant of Venice and Much Ado about Nothing are at the Adamas Theatre. Pride and Prejudice, The 39 Steps and Great Expectations are at the Randall Theatre.

During the Fall season, The Adventures of Pericles, Greater Tuna and The Diary of Anne Frank will complete the 2010 season.

We look forward to your visit.! Don’t forget to reserve your room at the Abbey Inn. We would love to take care of your lodging needs!
