Utah Shakespearean Festival About to Open in Cedar City

The Tony Award-winning Utah Shakespearean Festival is about to open its 46th season. This year's festival includes the world premiere of the highly anticipated comedy, “Lend Me a Tenor: The Musical."

Preview performances with tickets available to the public begin on June 21.

Opening performances begin June 25. The festival runs through October.

The Utah Shakespearean Festival is hosted on the campus of Southern Utah University (Cedar City), and is dedicated to the presentation of repertory theatre, which illuminates the human condition in an atmosphere where playgoers can watch, participate in and be immersed in experiences which entertain, enrich, and educate.

This year's lineup features three well-known Shakespearean plays and another which isn’t produced quite as frequently. Also included are a British comedy, an American classic that served as the inspiration for a famous Broadway musical, and a hilarious musical adaptation of an already highly successful Broadway comedy, a modern play all about art, and a beloved murder mystery.

The plays are listed below:
Twelfth Night
King Lear
The Matchmaker
Lend Me a Tenor: The Musical
The Tempest
The Mousetrap

See the festival website for more info or to order tickets.
