This year the Utah Shakespeare Festival is celebrating officially opening the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Center for the Arts. It has been a dream for many in the Southern Utah city. The  $39.1 million complex includes not only the Engelstad Theatre, but the new Eileen and Allen Anes Studio Theatre, the spectacular Southern Utah Museum of Art, the existing Randall L. Jones Theatre, offices and rehearsal space, a new costume shop, and beautiful walkways, patios, and sculpture gardens. The center, with visual arts, live theatre, and dynamic arts education will dramatically enrich the cultural life of SUU, Cedar City, and the surrounding area. It will be a year-round destination for hundreds of thousands of yearly visitors. For more information on the festival, go here.
