From Shakespeare classics to modern favorites, this is the place to see great theatre! We spent 4 days and saw 5 fantastic shows. We also attended seminars that let us see the behind the scenes magic that is repertory theatre. Try on the costumes, learn how the props are made and watch the stage crew change the set from one...

If you are seeking totally enjoyable entertainment with high quality professional acting, dancing and singing, then I strongly recommend the Utah Shakespeare Festival. We have seen three performances so far this season and I eagerly await seeing the others.

We have come to see the Shakespeare festival on and off for over 20 years. The quality of perfomances is superb, ticket prices are very reasonble for the quality of perfomances they provide. The new outdoor theater venue is great. Well worth a stop along the way to Vegas or Salt Lake City. Of course it is also a great... More

The Utah Shakespeare Festival just got even better. This year they opened 2 new theatres, one small house and a new and wonderful version of the Globe, the Englestad. The shows are always amazing professional quality (and we have seen every production since 1991). There are free entertainment events (nightly Greenshows, costume and props seminars) as well as low cost... More

We just returned from our second visit to the Festival. Last year, we saw two plays and this year, we saw three. All of them were absolutely excellent productions. Can't wait to go back next season!

My family and I have been festival goers for the past 7 years. We look forward to the festival every year. We try to see all of the plays and make our trip complete with visiting local state parks and such during our mornings or extra days. The caliper of acting is unreal. The festival is truly a Utah jewel.

This summer is my 21st consecutive season attending the Utah Shakespeare Festival. It has changed my life for the better by allowing me to get to know William Shakespeare and his work in-depth, and also the top plays and musicals from the last 50 or so years. It's amazing to see actors in repertory playing multiple often quite different characters.... More

This was our third visit to the Utah Shakespeare Festival. We absolutely love it! The performances are always incredible! This time we watched Mary Poppins. The elaborate sets were amazing. Watching the two children perform was incredible. This performance is a must see! We will definitely be back!

Since we relocated to Utah about 5 years ago, this has become an annual event we would never miss. The Shakespeare productions are excellent, even for beginners, as the actors project, enunciate, and keep their pace slow enough to be well understood. This year's (2016) Henry V and Much Ado about Nothing were outstanding. Mary Poppins and Three Musketeers were... More
