What a surprise! To find Broadway caliber acting and productions in the hinterlands of rural Utah! The Utah Shakespeare Festival productions are of the highest quality and professionalism -- not to mention flat out entertaining. This festival was won a prestigious Toni Award for best regional theater. If you attend, you'll quickly understand why. It's unsurpassed!

I have been two two shows at the Festival. One Shakespeare Comedy and one non-Shakespeare comedy. Both shows were great. The cast was extremely talented and entertaining. Can't wait to come back.

We were in Cedar City for its' outdoor activities and proximity to National Parks and had not intended to go to any shows. We stayed at a B&B where everyone was seeing something, so we decided to check it out and enjoyed 2 shows - Sherlock Holmes and Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. Both were really good, and we were so glad... More

If you like Shakespeare, this is great. It is professional performance, and we pack six shows into four day. The theaters are adequate, and new facilities are now under construction. Ticket prices are moderate, and there are enough hotels in town.

This is our first time going, being from Las Vegas, we don't usually go out of town just to see shows. The productions were wonderful, and overall this was a delightful experience, better than most shows we have seen in Las Vegas, set on a beautiful college campus, in a very gorgeous area of Utah.

Fantastic location - you can see the Utah Shakespeare grounds from their front yard. Very nice rooms, clean and interesting. Wonderful breakfast with homemade warm pumpkin scones with homemade pumpkin butter and real whipped cream!

The Utah Shakespeare Festival (also reviewed in Trip Advisor as The Adams Theater) is an excellent regional theater which has productions during the summer season (6 plays during June - August) and fall season (3 plays during September and October). You don't have to be a fan of Shakespeare to find an enjoyable play. The fall season usually has 2... More

Unbelievable that such quality theater is way out here in Southern Utah. I love NYC, and love the theater. If you're within 500 miles, this is worth the trip! It equals and betters any regional theater I've seen.

This regional theatre is well-known for it's excellence. The acting, directing, and staging are always nothing short of brilliance. I have attended this theatre for over forty years and have rarely been disappointed. More often I am surprised and delighted. Currently the Festival is engaged in a 12-year plan to perform the entire Shakespeare cannon, the histories chronologically and the... More

A great play at the Shakespearean festival. We laughed and laughed and laughed.. Get your tickets early. The place was packed for a Friday afternoon play.
