The Utah Shakespeare Festival

My family recently watched one of the plays the Utah Shakespeare Festival put on for the 2015 season.

The festival puts out several plays each year, which include comedies, tragedies and historical plays by The Bard, as well as a few more modern plays by other talented playwrights.

This year's list includes:  King Lear, The Taming of the Shrew, Henry the Fourth Part 2, Amadeus, Charlie's Aunt, and South Pacific.  Closer to the fall, they will also show Dracula, and Two Gentlemen of Verona.

This year, we watched The Taming of the Shrew.  Melinda Pfundstein (Katherine) and Brian Vaughn (Petruchio) did a fantastic job playing their parts.  I appreciated their talents, and the talents of the rest of the cast of this hilarious play!
