Festival Offers Discounts to "Locals"
By Liz Armstrong
Calling all locals! The folks at the Utah Shakespeare Festival can’t thank its loyal patrons enough—but they would like to try. With its “local” patrons in mind, the Festival has created a series of discounts for those who live in southern Utah and Lincoln County, Nevada.
“The Festival is so fortunate to have so much support from our friends in Cedar City and the surrounding areas,” said Donn Jersey, director of development and communications. “Acknowledging this through local discount options is our way of saying thank you to everyone in the area that loves the Festival. The groundwork for the success of each of our seasons starts with our wonderful local community.”
If you want to see world-class theatre this summer at a reduced price, try out these options:
Tickets to plays Monday through Thursday may be purchased for 50 percent off. However, these deeply-discounted tickets may be purchased on the day of the performance only. This discount is available for residents located in Iron, Beaver, Washington, Kane, Garfield, and Piute counties in Utah and Lincoln County, Nevada. Proof of residency is required.
Iron County Pass
Purchase an Iron County Pass for $200 any time, then redeem it for eight tickets to any plays throughout the season. That can be eight tickets to one play, one ticket each to eight different plays, or any other combination. This discount is available to Iron County residents only. Proof of residency and an ID is required when you purchase the pass, and the offer is limited to two passes per resident. The pass expires October 8, 2022.
Student Access Pass
The Student Access Pass is available for any elementary through university student (including home-schooled students) for $40. Students may buy the pass at any time then use it on the day of a play only to receive one ticket per performance for an unlimited number of performances throughout the season. Student Access Passes are limited to one per student and expire on October 8, 2022. A student ID is required.
All discounts are subject to availability and do not include seats in premier and center orchestra sections. These discounts are not available online.
Tickets and passes may be purchased by calling 800-PLAYTIX or visiting the Festival ticket office after June 19. For more information, including ticket office hours and ticket prices, go to bard.org/tickets.
