Your visitation shall receive such thanks.

Let us help you plan your visit to the Festival, with the following resources for choosing lodging, dining, sightseeing, and other services.


Parking is abundant and free near all the Festival theatres.

Free parking is available near all our theatres.

The Southern Utah University parking lot north and in front of the Auditorium (number 3 on the map) is available for Festival guests. When that fills, there is usually ample parking on the northwest corner of 300 West and Center Street (north of Center Street/University Boulevard). It is open at all times, and Festival guests may park there without a permit.


We are committed to making the Festival experience the best we possibly can for all our patrons.

All Festival theatres are accessible to persons with disabilities and are equipped with hearing-enhancement headsets, available for no charge in the theatre lobbies. ASL interpreted, audio described, and captioned performances are scheduled for each production. 

Check the calendar for dates. Other accommodations should be requested at least seven working days prior to attendance.

Child Care

Your children will love the Festival's professional, state-licensed Child Care.

Your children will love the Festival's professional, state-licensed Child Care.

During the play, you can relax knowing your children are enjoying their time in our safe, professional facility.

Children under the age of six years are not admitted to Festival plays. For children six and older, please familiarize yourself with the plays before ordering tickets. Child care for children up to the age of ten years and children with special needs is provided during all plays, but not during other Festival activities.

Our professionally staffed, safe, and state-licensed facility is located at 123 S. 300 West Street, just south of the Randall L. Jones Theatre.

The cost is $20 per child per play. Advance reservations are required through the Ticket Office at 800-PLAYTIX (800-752-9849).

In Case of Rain

"Shakespeare-under-the-Stars" sometimes necessitates a poncho or a light wrap, so come prepared. However, umbrellas are not allowed because they obstruct the view of others. In case of a light sprinkle, the show will go on in the outdoor Adams Theatre. In case of heavy rain, comparable seating will be provided in the indoor Auditorium Theatre. 

Please keep your ticket so that Guest Services personnel can verify your rain stage seat number.


Because the Utah Shakespeare Festival is moving to the new Beverley Taylor Sorenson Center for the Arts, including the outdoor Engelstad Shakespeare Theatre, we will no longer have an indoor rain stage. The rain policy beginning in 2016 will be as follows:

Performances will continue during inclement weather, possibly after short delays. We will make every effort to complete the performance, even if it is raining. Umbrellas are not allowed, but rain ponchos are appropriate. If a performance is cancelled before intermission, a credit will be issued to all guests in attendance at that performance. The Festival will not issue credits if the show is canceled after intermission.
