Photographs Celebrating 50 Years of Utah Shakespearean Festival Now at Gallery East

Gallery East presents We are Such Stuff as Dreams are Made On, an exhibition celebrating 50 years of the Utah Shakespeare Festival. Running from March 16 through April 7, this exhibit features photographs from years past and provides an educational history of the award-winning festival.

This commemorative exhibit celebrates 50 years of the Utah Shakespeare Festival as seen through the eyes of its artists, audiences, and community.

From its humble beginnings in 1961 to an internationally-known professional theatre company which received the 2000 Tony Award for “Outstanding Regional Theatre”, the Utah Shakespearean Festival has provided education, enrichment, and entertainment for Utahns and thousands of visitors.

The pieces in this traveling exhibit trace the evolution of this internationally-recognized theatre company.В  The exhibit features some thirty photographs documenting history of the festival and includes a number of images showing the colorful productions which have been produced on the festival.

The title of the exhibit is taken from the character Prospero in The Tempest, and it suggests the kind of creativity and dramatic spirit that has fueled the workings of the Utah Shakespearean Festival for decades. The images in the exhibit illustrate the many talented actors and participants in this widely enjoyed festival.

The Utah Arts Council exhibit, We are Such Stuff as Dreams are Made On, will be exhibited from March 16 through April 7, 2011. An opening reception will be held on Friday, March 18, 2011, from 7-9 PM. The gallery is free and open to the public during the academic year.
