The Utah Shakespeare Festival dimmed the lights in the Adams Shakespearean Theatre for the final time Saturday night and lit a new light in the under-construction Engelstad Shakespeare Theatre. It was end of an era and definitely the beginning of another.
The Festival says a fond farewell to the historic Adams Shakespearean Theatre at the end of this summer. We have planned several activities throughout the season. Patrons can come and experience all the magic the Adams has to offer as well as say goodbye.
In 1977, the Adams Memorial Shakespearean Theatre, nestled within the red rocks of southern Utah, launched the Festival into a new era of production and itself would be a character in every performance. The “unworthy scaffold” would become the “wooden O” for the Utah Shakespeare Festival.
To celebrate and commemorate the final season in the historic Adams Shakespearean Theatre, the Utah Shakespeare Festival is sponsoring a juried exhibition of artistic depictions of this beloved and beautiful building.
