Agency: Southern Utah University
Line Item: Shakespeare Festival
Founded in 1961, the Utah Shakespeare Festival is committed to entertain, enrich, and educate audiences of Shakespeare and other master dramatists. In 2000, the Utah Shakespeare Festival received the Tony Award for outstanding regional theater. The Festival also won a Regional Emmy Award for its 2011 production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Each summer and early fall, the Shakespeare Festival produces three of Shakespeare's plays in addition to several other plays. The plays are performed in the Adams Shakespearean Theatre, an open-air theater similar to the Globe Theatre and in the Randall L. Jones Theatre.
The quality of the Festival's productions has made Cedar City a summer destination and provided economic development to the region.
The Shakespeare Festival's performance measures include the number of performances, the number of tickets sold, and the annual ticket sales revenue.
