Only 2-1/2 hours north of Las Vegas and some of the best theater in the western US. USF's repertory season offers a mix of six show from the end of June through Labor Day and three shows in the fall. Usually three Shakespearean and three contemporary plays or musicals in summer and two contemporary in the fall. Amazing, professional theater... More

We have seen a number of productions of Shakespeare's plays and this was one of the best. The reproduction of the Globe theater was also a nice touch. They had a pre-play talk that was OK, but it was rather inconvenient that it was almost 2 hours before the play. They did have students doing a Scottish dance presentation between... More

We have gone every year to the Shakespeare festival since I was tiny. Make sure you get there early enough to go to the Green Show. It's an outdoor show with period dances, music and comedy. It was always my favorite part as a kid. Go to the Green Show with the family, then take your kids to the Doodlie... More

I have been attending the Shakespeare Festival in Cedar City for many years; and, I have never been disappointed. The quality of performance ranks up there with some Broadway plays I have seen in New York. The modern take on Twelfth Night was delightful. It was funny, interesting and worth the trip to Cedar City to see it, even though... More

I've been attending the Utah Shakespeare Festival for years. I've never been disappointed in a show! There are always multiple options (not just Shakespeare) and the whole experience is wonderful.

We attended over a weekend and saw 3 plays. They were all fantastic. We also enjoyed the free pre-play productions that occur on the lawn outside the theaters.

Wonderful presentation, easier to understand than most Shakespeare companies, all the seats in the theatre provide good viewing and a stellar performance. Before the play begins you can attend a lecture about the play and see a dance and song presentation for free. It is called The Green.

We have come to the Utah Shakespeare Festival periodically for many years. The plays have always been excellent. This year was no exception. The performances are flawless, well staged, and overall an amazing value. We saw two plays in one day. In addition to the plays, the people assisting with ticket sales, seating, in the gift shop, selling refreshments are... More
