We love attending plays at this authentic theater and look forward to the new Shakespeare theater. We are VERY disappointed that they are not planning on a retractable room for the new theater.

I really liked the feel of being in a real Shakespearean Theater. The stage is visible from everywhere I have sat. Sometimes it's a little cold though, since it is outside, so bring a jacket.

This venue is gaining worldwide recognition for the quality of it's productions and it is easy to see why. There has been much work and effort into making this a quality destination. Ticket prices can be seen at the website but range from about $50 and up, though they do have 2 for one performances, senior discounts and more. Currently... More

Thanks for your comments. We are really excited about the new Beverley Taylor Sorenson Center for the Arts, which you mentioned. It is slated to be ready to go for our 2016 season, and it will include a new outdoor Shakespearean theater, SUMA (the Southern Utah Museum of Art), and a smaller performance space, in addition to the current Randall...

This theater is an open-air theater on SUU's campus. It's beautiful, and every seat in there is a good seat. It's fun to see a Shakespeare play in general, but it's an experience to see Shakespeare's plays in a replica theater. Make sure to check the weather and dress appropriately.

We are frequent visitors to this venue and have seldom been disappointed. High quality productions with beautiful costumes and precise diction make Shakespeare accessible. The actors are excellent and manage to convey as much with body language and expression as with the words of "The Bard." The Green Show, play orientations and other extra lectures and tours, as well as... More

saw Measure for Measure---i admit not being a Shakespeare fan, so the show itself certainly wasn't memorable for myself, but the atmosphere is still worth the price of a ticket

We saw two plays in this theater and loved our experience with both. One was a serious historical drama and the other a light comedy. The theater design allowed the audience and actors to interact. We had "premier" seats for one performance and the last row up top for the other. We bought our tickets late for the "up top"... More

I chose plays in this theatre as this theatre will be closed after the 2015 season. A new building is being constructed and will replace this theatre.

Experience Shakespeare in one of the most authentic period theatres in the world. Plays are very well produced. There are also seminars and other events that are put on in the venue. Concessions are available within 20 yards if you need a coffee or a snack.
