CEDAR CITY, UT — The Utah Shakespeare Festival staff, artists, guests, and volunteers are saddened by the passing of Anne Judd on September 11.

Anne has been a supporter of the Festival for many years in many capacities, most noticeably as volunteer coordinator since 1989. She was also very involved in the New American Playwrights Project, as a wise and steady voice in selecting plays for the program.

“We are deeply saddened to share the passing of Anne Judd, our friend and volunteer coordinator,” said Joshua Stavros, media and public relations manager. “She worked tirelessly for many years to make sure our volunteers and guests had a wonderful experience here at the Festival. Her twinkling smile, quick wit, and concern for all around her have left an indelible impression on our hearts. She will be deeply missed.”

“Anne was one of those rare people who you feel fortunate to have known and rubbed shoulders with,” added R. Scott Phillips, executive director. “She was a quiet force of balance, sagacity, and intellect in everything she did. I will miss her both professionally and personally.”

Thank you for your many years, Anne. Or, as the Bard simply stated, “Farewell, Hostess” (Henry V, 2.3.59).
