CEDAR CITY — In an effort to help students attend the Utah Shakespeare Festival at reduced prices, the Festival has announced the return of the Student Access Pass. This pass can be purchased for $35 and gives students the ability to attend as many Festival plays as they want at no additional cost from June 25 through October 31.
Students must present their current student ID to purchase the Student Access Pass at the Festival Ticket Office. To redeem tickets, students can visit the Festival website or go to the ticket office. Tickets are nontransferable.
“Students are on limited budgets but full of passion for the Festival,” Michael Bahr, education director, said. “These Student Access Passes offer an affordable option for students to enjoy our shows.”
Tickets are on sale for the Festival’s 54th season, which will run from June 25 to October 31. The eight-play season includes Shakespeare’s “King Lear,” “The Taming of the Shrew,” “Henry IV Part Two” and “The Two Gentlemen of Verona.” The season will also include Peter Shaffer’s “Amadeus,” Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “South Pacific,” “Charley’s Aunt” by Brandon Thomas, and Steven Dietz’s adaptation of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula.”
The Utah Shakespeare Festival is the professional theater at Southern Utah University.
