The Utah Shakespeare Festival will be celebrating our Armed Forces with free tickets for military personnel to selected performances on August 26 to September 3. The Festival appreciates the sacrifices of the men and women who serve and recognizes their dedication and commitment to this country.

The offer is for anyone with a military ID, active or veteran, and includes four tickets per ID total to any of the following shows (all begin at 8 p.m.): Every Brilliant Thing on August 26, The Conclusion of Henry VI: Parts Two and Three on August 28, The Book of Will on September 2, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat on September 3, Hamlet on September 5, and Macbeth on September 6.

Military personnel are invited to reserve tickets by calling 800-PLAYTIX or visiting the ticket office near the Anes Studio Theatre. A valid military ID will be required to pick up the tickets, and there is a limit of four tickets per ID. Tickets are not available in the Premier seating section. Space is limited for this special offer, so call soon to reserve your seats.  

“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 to our country and every one of us.”

Twelfth Night, The Book of Will, and Macbeth continue in the Engelstad Theatre through the weekend of September 5–7.
