The 770-seat Randall L. Jones Theatre in Cedar City, Utah opened in June 1989, as a state-of-the-art indoor venue to enhance the Utah Shakespeare Festival’s ability to present world-class stage performances beyond those of The Bard. Nationally recognized for its architectural beauty, the Randall L. Jones Theater on the campus of Southern Utah University, provides professional repertory theater in a small town setting.
This season’s offerings include Guys and Dolls, which plays on alternating days from July 3 – September 1. This popular Broadway musical tells the story of a high-rolling gambling man and his love interest, a puritanical – but beautiful – missionary; a showgirl who wants to live life on the straight-and-narrow and a craps game manager who is “anything but straight and narrow.” The lively and brassy music of Frank Loesser – “A Bushel and a Peck” and “Luck Be A Lady” – will keep you whistling a happy tune for a week after the curtain comes down.
Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” running alternatively from July 4 to October 21, is still The Bard’s luxurious “tale of fairies, dreams and moonlight” but USF’s production of this popular comedy is set in the art deco world of the Jazz Age with different scenery and costumes but the same pandemonium, mayhem and truth that “the course of true love never did run smooth!”
Treasure Island, the epic musical tale of adventure on the high seas with the villainous, cunning and opportunistic, but jovial and astoundingly clever peg-legged Long John Silver and Jim Hawkins, a courageous cabin boy, buried treasure, and cutthroat pirates plays from July 5 through September 2.
