2013 Utah Shakespeare Festival - SOLD OUT!
“I'd rather see Shakespeare in Cedar City than in Stratford, England.
My experiences have been better there. This is professional theatre rated
among the top three Shakespeare festivals in North America.”
– Dr. S Michael Wilcox
Michael has seen all of the plays offered each summer for over 20 years. No matter how busy he is he finds time to experience Cedar City’s Shakespeare Festival.
The truth is – you’re going to love it too! It doesn’t matter if you are a Shakespeare fanatic or just love to see great plays, we promise you will treasure the time you spend with Michael and the plays in Cedar City. Each year they put on an American Play, a comedy play and a musical in addition they put on 3 Shakespeare plays – a total of 6 plays altogether. Even those that thought they would not like Shakespeare have thoroughly enjoyed every play. The secret is Michael. Before each play, Michael spends an hour explaining the plot of the play along with each of the characters. It is amazing how well you understand Shakespeare after listening to Michael.

3 of Shakespeare’s plays are performed in the outdoor Adams Shakespeare Theatre.
- King John -
Beginning with struggles for power between kings, churches, and individuals, and continuing through war, revenge, and eventual murder, King John is one of Shakespeare’s most revealing history plays. Set during the period when the nobles were changing the face of English government and forcing the king to sign the Magna Carta, this intriguing and rarely produced play is one you won’t want to miss.
- Love’s Labour’s Lost -
All is peaceful in King Ferdinand’s court, where he and his idealistic friends have resolved to dedicate themselves to three years of fasting, study—and no women. Peaceful, that is, until the beautiful princess of France and her ladies arrive. Could the lesson of this, one of Shakespeare’s most delightful comedies, be that “young blood doth not obey an old degree?”
- The Tempest -
Teeming with fairies, monsters, shipwrecks, and magic, The Tempest is Shakespeare’s last and most mature romance. The deposed Duke Prospero and his lovely daughter, Miranda, are shipwrecked on a small island where nothing is quite as it seems. But as they separate fantasy from authenticity, they eventually discover a “brave new world” of love, harmony, and redemption.
3 fantastic plays & musicals are performed in the Randall L. Jones Theatre.
- Anything Goes -
When this ship heads out to sea, convention heads out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love, with a little help from singing sailors, an exotic disguise, and good old-fashioned blackmail. Peppering this hilariously bumpy ride is a songbook of Cole Porter’s biggest hits, including “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “It’s De-lovely,” and, of course, “Anything Goes.”
- Twelve Angry Men -
On a sweltering August night in New York City, the jury files into the
deliberation room. The door is locked behind them. Now twelve nameless men from twelve varied backgrounds must decide the fate of a young man accused of killing his father. Faced with playing the executioner, these dozen men must first face themselves, their biases, and their own sense of justice. This American classic will have you on the edge of your seat until the final verdict is announced.
- Peter and the Starcatcher -
Discover the Neverland you never knew in this regional premiere, straight from Broadway and five Tony Awards. It is a wildly theatrical, hilarious, and innovative story of how an orphan came to be Peter Pan, how the captain got his hook, and where all those lost boys came from. You won’t want to miss this epic tale of one of the world’s most enduring and beloved characters.
The price from Salt Lake City, driver accommodations and drivers meals, cost almost $100 per person. We felt most of you could drive to and from Cedar City for around $40. With so many of our passengers coming from other cities and states, we just felt it would work better having you drive to Cedar City.
