Thanks for the review. We do recommend that guests let our ticket agents know about mobility challenges when they book tickets. We have seating available in every theatre that allows guests to minimize walking/stairs or remain in a wheelchair.

My sister and I attended the Shakespeare Festival in Cedar City Utah. We attended two plays "Guys & Dolls" and "Midsummer Night's Dream". The first was great the second play was ok; rather disjointed but got better as it went on. Would attend again.

We saw Guys and Dolls and it was enjoyable. There was plenty of parking and Cedar City is a quaint little town.
