The final week of The Greenshow at the Utah Shakespeare Festival will feature a new twist: local performing groups will take the stage September 5 through 10, replacing the regular Festival performers.

Pipers from the Southern Utah University Scarlet and Black Bagpipe Band will perform Monday and Thursday, September 5 and 8; local musical group Wilhelm will take the stage Tuesday and Friday, September 6 and 9; and area youth performers in the Festival Playmakers program will perform Wednesday and Saturday, September 7 and 10.

All performers begin at 7:10 p.m. at the Festival’s Ashton Family Greenshow Commons, and are free to the public.

“This is a great opportunity for our audiences to see the caliber of local entertainers we have,” said Joshua Stavros, Festival media and public relations manager and co-director of The Greenshow. “We hope that our guests, especially those in Iron County, will come out and enjoy the cool evenings and fantastic entertainment.”
