Utah Shakespearean Festival Fall Season
CEDAR CITY, Utah—Ignite your passion this fall at the Utah Shakespearean Festival (300 W. Center Street, Cedar City, UT). Tickets are on sale now at 1-800-PLAYTIX and www.bard.org. Tickets range from $25-$59.
The fall season will run from Sept. 16 through Oct. 23 with three different plays in the Randall L. Jones Theatre. The season features Shakespeare’s “Odyssey”-like drama “The Adventures of Pericles,” the Pulitzer Prize-winning play “The Diary of Anne Frank,” and the rural comedy “Greater Tuna.”
Shakespeare’s “The Adventures of Pericles” is a tale of high adventure, in which the title character undertakes a perilous odyssey, searching for thrills, riches, and family. But, dangers and uncertainty face him on every seashore as he sails from country to country, and from intrigue to intrigue. His loves die. His friends deceive him. The gods seem to be against him. But, in the end, he finds the most important treasure of all: himself.
“The Diary of Anne Frank” is a story of one little girl whose bravery, hope and determination have inspired thousands. In 1942 Germany, life is no longer safe for Anne and her family. Forced into hiding, this courageous girl records her struggles through the power of the written word. This Pulitzer Prize-winning play is a testament not to brutality of war and hatred, but to the unshakable spirit of a young girl and to the hopes and loves of a family and a people trying to hold on to their faith.
Welcome to Tuna, Texas, home of “Greater Tuna” – where the population is small, but the personalities are big. Join Thurston and Arles on OKKK radio as they bring you the daily happenings, complete with UFOs, Smut Snatchers, and Puppy Pushers, and where laughter fills every thirty-second sound bite. Join this cast of quirky characters (portrayed by only two actors!) as they navigate through the small town life that is Greater Tuna.
