Beautiful setting, great performances, helpful staff. In previous years there were outdoor vendors, but we didn't see any this year, disappointed about that. Other than that, this is the finest Shakespeare festival ever!

We visit the Utah Shakespeare Festival every year and are never disappointed with the performances or the friendly staff and volunteers. A great way to beat the heat - only three hours from Las Vegas.

We have not been able to come down for a few years and I was so pleased that it was the same as before. The plays are great, the actors are so so good. We saw 2 totally different plays that had the same actors in them and they were so awesome! I can't even imagine how hard it would... More

The plays are professionally produced in an intimate venue There is no bad seat in the Randall Theater. A definite "must do."

In addition to shows in the Adams rendition of the Old Globe we saw the world premiere of Sense & Sensibility adapted from Jane Austen and Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. Both were outstanding productions in the Randall Theater. Terrific actors and sets...all seats are good. Premiere seats provide blankets because it does get a little chilly, even inside! As good and... More

One musical "morality play" by Sondheim and two plays by Shakespeare were great even though it rained a little for the Henry IV part I in the Globe Theatre. We had the pleasure of Fred Adams's orientations to both Shakespeare plays -- he founded the Utah Festival 50 years ago and should be very proud.

Amazing! Every year I wonder how this can get better, but it always does! We saw "The Comedy of Errors" and are thinking of returning to Cedar City to see it again. We also saw "Twelfth Night" and it was outstanding. I prefer seeing plays in the evening in the Adams Theater, but the matinees in the Jones Theater are... More

This is probably my 20th trip to the festival. I love it. It has something for everyone. Comedy, drama and more than Shakesphere. This trip my husband and I saw Sense and Sensibility at the Randall Theatre. It can get chilly so bring a sweater. The staff was very friendly. The play was excellent. If you are going to a... More

I 'discovered" the USF in 2004 as I was towed into Cedar City with car trouble. I found that there was a theater festival going on, and I decided to attend a performance before continuing my trip. That discovery has led me to continue attending performances every year since then. I attend all six plays in the summer and the... More
