  • The 2015 Utah Shakespeare Festival, celebrating its 54th year, features a summer and fall season. We will be distributing over 94,000 copies of the playbill at over 200 performances. The playbill has a readership of over 130,000 ticket holders. The following performances will be held at either Adams Shakespearean Theatre or in the Randall L. Jones Theatre.

    THE TAMING OF THE SHREW
    JUNE 25 TO SEPTEMBER 5, 2015
    Kate and Petruchio are one of literature’s greatest screwball couples, hell-bent on confusing and outwitting each other—right up to the play’s hilarious, but revealing, final scene.

    HENRY IV PART II
    JUNE 26 TO SEPTEMBER 5, 2015
    Following up on last season’s Part One, Henry IV Part Two has King Henry in failing health and young Prince Hal in a position where he must decide: fantasy and youthful rebellion or the sobering and often harsh realities of kingship.

    KING LEAR
    JUNE 27 TO SEPTEMBER 4, 2015
    Cordelia, his favorite daughter, says nothing. Proud Lear misinterprets, and his world slowly but relentlessly descends into madness, chaos—and nothingness.

    AMADEUS
    JUNE 25 TO SEPTEMBER 5, 2015
    Overshadowed by the young Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, court composer Antonio Salieri struggles to escape his own obscurity. In his quest to be remembered, he lies and cheats. But against the background of the world’s greatest music, did he also murder?

    SOUTH PACIFIC
    JUNE 25 TO SEPTEMBER 4, 2015
    One of the most beloved musicals of all time, South Pacific is a sweeping story of love threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war, all set to songs such as “Some Enchanted Evening,” “Younger Than Springtime,” and “Bali Ha’i.

    CHARLEY’S AUNT
    JUNE 25 TO SEPTEMBER 5, 2015
    A quiet luncheon turns into a corset-busting masquerade when two college chums go to great lengths to woo a pair of charming young ladies, including persuading their wacky friend to pose as an aunt from Brazil—where the nuts come from.
