Military Appreciation Days 2023

Military Appreciation Days 2023

The Utah Shakespeare Festival is celebrating our Armed Forces by offering free tickets to military personnel for performances from September 4 to 9. Our Military Appreciation Days recognize the invaluable sacrifices, commitment, and unwavering dedication of our veterans and active-duty members.

Eligible patrons—those with a military ID or DD214 form, whether active or veteran—can receive four complimentary tickets per ID to any 2023 show during the specified dates. These tickets can be split across multiple shows or all used for a single performance. Please note, these tickets cannot be redeemed for premier seating sections.

“I’m honored to be the son of a proud Vietnam veteran,” said Donn Jersey, director of development and communication, “and once again the Utah Shakespeare Festival wants to extend a warm welcome and humble thank you to all of those that made sacrifices for our country and every one of us.”

Reserve tickets now by calling 800-PLAYTIX or by visiting the ticket office near the Eileen and Allen Anes Studio Theatre. Please note: this special offer cannot be reserved online and spaces are limited.
