All sorts of characters, from groups of confused lovers to swashbuckling pirates, from the king and queen of the fairies to singing and dancing gamblers will take over our stages--and your hearts. Don't miss a single minute. We're saving you a seat.

WELCOME TO SHAKESPEARE U
Would you like a little more “hands on” adventure as part of your playgoing this summer? Are you, your friends, or your family looking for something with a little more verve, that will connect you more closely to your theatrical experience? If so, then the Utah Shakespeare Festival’s new Shakespeare U may be just what you are looking for.   
Founder Fred C. Adams
NOT BAD FOR A MAN IN HIS NINTH DECADE!
He’s eighty-six years old and has loved and lived the Utah Shakespeare Festival dream for nearly sixty years, but Founder Fred C. Adams shows few signs of slowing down. “I still come to the office every day,” said Adams, “although a little later than I used to.” So, look for Fred at the Festival this summer. If you don’t see him on the stage or at an orientation, find him on the patio before a play, and say “hi.” 
The Southern Utah Museum of Art
WHAT IS GOING ON THIS SUMMER AT SUMA?
The Utah Shakespeare Festival's neighbor at the Beverley Center for the Arts is the Southern Utah Museum of Arts, affectionately known as SUMA. It anchors the northwest corner of the center and provides another outlet for arts lovers, featuring permanent and rotating exhibits throughout the Festival season and the rest of the year. With five gallery spaces inside a building that is itself a work of art, SUMA always has something to see and do.
