2021 Utah Shakespeare FestivalCedar City Utah 4 day tour- August 9, 2021
“I’d rather see Shakespeare in Cedar City than in Stratford, England. My experiences have been better there. This is a 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. Everyone, even if you question your love of Shakespeare, will absolutely love this festival. It has 4 Shakespeare plays and 2 other musicals, comedies, or Broadway-type plays. Michael helps all of us understand each of Shakespeare’s play by explaining the story and the characters before we go to each Shakespeare play. Knowing the story will make Shakespeare more enjoyable for everyone. Each day you will enjoy 2 wonderful plays.
Look at the fantastic line-up of plays for 2021
THE ENGELSTAD SHAKESPEARE THEATRE
Pericles, Prince of Tyre is a Jacobean play written at least in part by William Shakespeare and included in modern editions of his collected works despite questions over its authorship, as it was not included in the First Folio.
COMEDY OF ERRORS
The Comedy of Errors is one of William Shakespeare’s early plays. It is his shortest and one of his most farcical comedies, with a major part of the humor coming from slapstick and mistaken identity, in addition to puns and wordplay.
Richard III is a historical play by William Shakespeare believed to have been written around 1593. It depicts the Machiavellian rise to power and subsequent short reign of King Richard III of England. The play is grouped among the histories in the First Folio and is most often classified as such.
THE RANDALL L. JONES THEATRE
THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE
The Pirates of Penzance; or, The Slave of Duty is a comic opera in two acts, with music by Arthur Sullivan and libretto by W. S. Gilbert. The opera’s official premiere was at the Fifth Avenue Theatre in New York City on 31 December 1879, where the show was well-received by both audiences and critics.
At the dawn of a new century, everything is changing… and anything is possible. In the melting-pot of New York City, a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant, and a daring young Harlem musician are brought together by the promise of the future. Filled with compassion, courage, and America’s great historical figures, Ragtime is an inspirational musical that displays the true portrait of America.
ANES STUDIO THEATRE
Cymbeline, also known as The Tragedie of Cymbeline or Cymbeline, King of Britain, is a play by William Shakespeare set in Ancient Britain and based on legends that formed part of the Matter of Britain concerning the early Celtic British King Cunobeline.
