The Greenshow delighting townsfolk as well as theatergoers.


Greenshow silliness is great fun.


The Utah Shekespeare Festival is committed to produce all of Shakespeare’s 38 plays between 2012 and 2023 and this comfortable attractive outdoor setting is perfect.

IMAG3074For us, the most memorable play in our 2013 season visit turned  out to be “Twelve Angry Men.”  It was wonderfully staged, impeccably cast and stunningly performed.  The themes were moving and relevant even though set in 1957–a powerhouse presentation where each of the jurors is forced to examine his own motives and biases.    The Shakespeare we saw was a seldom produced history, “King John,” which did not seem to have permeated the psyche of the actors.

We also had a very pleasant stay in Cedar City.  Michele loves to visit college and universities and this small town campus turned out to be a little gem nestled a natural wonderland.  The theater complex is very well supported by the locals and gaining reputation.  All the townsfolk families turn out for the “Greenshow” pre performance which  was a delight on it’s own. Each summer evening on the lovely green surrounding the Adams Theater is filled with Elizabethan song and dance.
