Adams Shakespearean Theatre
Cedar City, Utah

In the early 1960s, business owners worried that the proposed Interstate 15 would divert tourists from Cedar City as they travelled to Zions and Bryce Canyon national parks.  Fred C. Adams, a professor at Southern Utah State College, thought a theater festival might encourage passing tourists to exit the new freeway.  For its first season in 1962, the Utah Shakespeare Festival used a makeshift outdoor platform as a stage, with the audience seated in folding chairs on the lawn.  In 1977, the festival built the Adams Shakespearean Theatre, a replica of the original Globe Theatre.

The Old Barn Community Theatre was founded in 1998 by “a group of interested members of the community” who had a dream of opening “a theatre where families and friends could share wonderful entertainment in a wholesome and friendly environment.” The theater's mission is to provide “a volunteer based forum for citizens in the surrounding area to participate in creating and producing wholesome, high-quality entertainment through theatrical productions.”[1]
