Shakespeare Competition

Southern Utah University • September 29-October 1, 2022

The Utah Shakespeare Festival and Southern Utah University are thrilled to host the forty-sixth annual Shakespeare Competition. We are hopeful the competition will be held in person, but that is subject to change depending on current health and safety restrictions. There are also virtual components being planned that will be available to schools unable to travel to Cedar City. More details to come.
