Have been attending this glorious gem for the past twenty-five years, and always with a sense of awe mixed with genuine relaxation; very superior productions with equity actors, conducted in comfortable and attractive venues, in the beautiful small town of Cedar City. If you are, at all, a fan of the stage, you simply owe it to yourself to embark... More

I bring myself every year for my birthday - I have Shakespeare here in San Diego at the Globe, but it doesn't even compare to Cedar City. Great places to stay in town, the entire experience is the stuff that dreams are made of. Make sure you get all of the plays and just knock them out in a few... More

This is such a wonderful place to stop and enjoy plays! I really enjoy the entire experience - including the literary seminars and the staged readings - go in late August to hear three staged readings in one week!

Oh my. This is a must do event if you are in the area and like Shakespeare. My son is now attending suu, which is the college that hosts these summer plays. So my years of advice are: pick a show playing in the outdoor theater in the round. Read a summary of the play first! Seats range in price.... More

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!
