After careful consideration and consultation from public health officials, the Utah Shakespeare Festival is moving forward with plans to produce a 2020 season. Necessary changes to ensure a safe and quality experience include producing fewer shows, modifying the schedule to start later in the summer and altering show designs.
Along with the season adjustments, the Festival will also mitigate health risks through a variety of methods some of which include implementing numerous hand sanitizing stations, increased cleaning and disinfecting procedures and strategic audience seating. As company members arrive in Cedar City they will self-quarantine for two-weeks and follow guidance offered by public health officials.
In order to present the outlined season, the Festival will limit building sets, props, lights and costumes for each show and focus on innovating storytelling and powerful acting. All productions will be fully rehearsed and feature a full company of outstanding professional actors, dancers and singers.
The Festival will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation very closely as it is impossible to know for certain what conditions will be like in July and August. The decision to move forward with an altered season was made under consultation with state officials, local health experts and SUU administration. The Festival will continue to work with these entities, and if conditions are not satisfactory the season will be cancelled and all tickets refunded.
