SHAKESPEARE E-GLOBE
ANNOUNCING THE FIRST ROUND OF 2017 CASTING
The Utah Shakespeare Festival recently announced the casting of the first eight actors for the 2017 season. All are familiar faces, having appeared at the Festival in the past. They will be playing such roles this summer as Rosalind in As You Like It, Bottom in A Midsummer Night's Dream, Miss Adelaide in Guys and Dolls, Fennyman in Shakespeare in Love, and Mrs. Shotwell in The Tavern.
 
HOW DOES LONG JOHN SILVER STACK UP?
Long John Silver of Treasure Island fame may be the best-known pirate, real or mythical, of all time. But how does Robert Louis Stevenson's character stack up when compared with real pirates? How does he rate when it comes to diabolical acts and a pirate's life? To see where he is on the scale, we've compared him to seven infamous pirates who have each terrorized the ocean in their own special way.
THANKS TO OUR MANY VOLUNTEERS
March 20 was set aside at the Festival to recognize our wonderful volunteers. Over 200 men and women put in countless hours each year hosting, ushering, preparing mailings, and completing numerous other tasks. Thus, at the Volunteer Recognition evening, the Festival honored them with short speeches, a lively performance by the Festival Playmakers, and dinner, as well as years of service pins to those who have served for five, ten, twenty, and more years.
