ONLY FOUR DAYS LEFT IN THE 2016 SEASON
Saturday is the end of what has been the most exciting season in the fifty-five year history of the Utah Shakespeare Festival. Two new theatres at the Beverley Center for the Arts and eight eclectic plays received rave reviews from critics and audiences alike. But it's not over yet. The Odd Couple, Murder for Two, and Julius Caesar continue through Saturday. Tickets to The Odd Couple are still available--but act now, the remaining tickets will go quickly.
 
Blood "squeakers" ready for the next showing of Julius Caesar.
THE ART OF BLOOD IN JULIUS CAESAR
Betrayal. Politics. Power. These are thematic elements that come to mind when one thinks of Julius Caesar, but in the Utah Shakespeare Festival's current production in the Eileen and Allen Anes Studio Theatre there's something else that's essential to the play: blood. 
         
Participants in the ensemble portion of the annual Shakespeare Competition.
ANNUAL COMPETITION CROWNS WINNERS 
The fortieth annual Shakespeare Competition, hosted by the Utah Shakespeare Festival and Southern Utah University, recently gave out dozens of awards and scholarships to drama, dance, and music students. The competition is the largest scholastic Shakespeare competition in the country, and this was a record-breaking year with over 3,000 students from 106 schools in six states.
YOU'RE INVITED TO A FREE PREVIEW SCREENING
Don't throw away your shot to see a screening of the PBS Great Performances documentary Hamilton's America, the story behind the revolutionary musical. The event is free on October 20 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Church Auditorium in the Sharwan Smith Student Center at SUU. It will feature a keynote presentation by SUU Professor Michelle Orihel and Michael Bahr, education director at the Utah Shakespeare Festival.
 
NEED HALLOWEEN IDEAS?
WE CAN HELP 
Want the perfect costume for Halloween this year? Something that will "wow" your neighbors, co-workers, and friends? Well, the Utah Shakespeare Festival can help. We have assembled on our Pinterest boards hundreds of ideas for costumes, hair, and makeup that will make you the envy of the all the ghouls and goblins (or fairies, waiting ladies, and noblemen).  
HELP US MEET OUR GOAL WITH YOUR ANNUAL GIFT
With all the new buildings at the Utah Shakespeare Festival, it may appear that we are living the high life and have no need of our generous friends. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Our annual costs to maintain these buildings, as well as stage our plays and continue our education offerings (many of them free) continue to climb. We have not met our fundraising goals for 2016; and we need your help. Please click below to see how you can help us get to the finish line.
