The Utah Shakespeare Festival…..

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Legacy

 

The Summer Season of the Utah Shakespeare Festival ended over the Labor Day Weekend.  This Season was unique, it was the 50th Anniversary Season.  The Fall Season begins this week, so it is a smooth transition. 

With it being the 50th Anniversary Season there were many extra events to go with the Anniversary Celebration.  One of the really neat things that is still going on is that they got a 1623 first edition of Shakespeare’s plays in a book form.  It is a rare book, which is on display at the Sherratt Library on the campus of Southern Utah University.

The Shakespeare Festival also had a look at the costumes from the productions.  New playwrights had the opportunity to have their plays performed in matinee performances.  The great thing about the Festival is that it not only performs Shakespeare’s plays, but also performs Broadway plays.  This helps the Festival appeal to a much broader audience.

I will be honest, I really believe that the Festival could do a lot better job of marketing.  We have a good Golf Course, and with Washington County so near, we have several really good golf courses to play.  It does get really hot in the summer time down the hill in Washington County, but they do have some great golf courses.

We have Zion National Park, Cedar Breaks National Monument, Bryce Canyon National Park and Lake Powell are within an easy driving distance.  Brian Head opens up some of their ski areas for mountain biking.  There is hiking, camping, fishing and ATV riding in the area.  We have a lot of wonderful recreational opportunities here in Cedar City.

I would personally like to see the Utah Shakespeare team up with some or all of these other activities and Parks to create some destination packages for  families.  I really would like to see Cedar City build another great golf course and really market it in a vacation package.

This is probably why I sell Real Estate, I know how to market that, I am not a marketing expert.  I am sure that the City and the Shakespeare Festival has professionals to think of ways to market their product.  Anyway, I am off of my soap box.  Is it easy to tell that I love the area?  I do, we have a lot to offer.  We invite everyone to come up and check it out!  While you’re here, you may decide that this is a great place to live or have a 2nd home in.  You will be right!  Contact Darcy or myself, we really would love to have the opportunity to earn your business.

The photo of Cedar Breaks National Monument reminds me a lot of scenes from Bryce.  The colors of the mountains and rocks in Utah are amazing.

Tony and Darcy - Great photos and promotion of a local cultural event. Just over an hour's drive from where I grew up in Canada, Stratford, Ontario holds a Shakesperian Festival every year. My Mother loved it!

As much as I love to read, one of the few authors that I never really liked was William Shakespeare. If only someone would update them into modern English like they did The Bible with the Good News version! LOL

Myrl, Cedar Breaks is very similar to Bryce Canyon.  Thank you!

John, Shakespeare I will admit isn't my cup of tea, but it is a very well done festival that draws thousands of people every Summer to Cedar City.

Russel, I don't know if that is the reason that I am not into Shakespeare, or whether it was because it was required reading in High School.  Maybe with that update I would like it better!

Tony and Darcy, I can't get over the beauty of your pictures. You live in such a gorgeous part of the country.  I am going to head that way someday.  The Shakespeare festival sounds like it was a great event!

I thought it was interesting during the Borders liquidation sales that the first things that went were classic literature. The last things we had on the shelves were all the stuff by Sarah Parlin, Mitt Romney, and all the other currently popular politicians who think they know everything.

Sandy, Thank you!  It is beautiful here, we don't have the beach, but there is always a trade off!

Jim, There is a reason that the classics have stood the test of time.  I guess that is why they are still printing copies of those books!
