Jane Austen Weekend at the Utah Shakespeare Festival


shakespeare festiva




The Shakespeare Festival


The Jane Austen Society of North America: Utah Region


Old Glory Vintage Dancers

August 15th and 16th, 2014

For a celebration of all things Shakespeare AND Austen!

“But Shakespeare one gets acquainted with without knowing how. It is a part of an Englishman’s constitution. His thoughts and beauties are so spread abroad that one touches them everywhere; one is intimate with him by instinct. No man of any brain can open at a good part of one of his plays without falling into the flow of his meaning immediately.” — Jane Austen

  We are pleased to announce that the Jane Austen Society of North America: Utah Region, Old Glory Vintage Dancers, and the Utah Shakespeare Festival are once again joining forces to celebrate Jane Austen!  Four years ago, we had the honor of working together for the Shakespeare Festival’s marvelous production of Pride and Prejudice, and we are once again joining up to enjoy Sense and Sensibility!   All tickets for Shakespeare Festival events will be purchased online at  If you plan on attending any of the social events, please sign up HERE.
