The Engelstad Shakespeare Theatre
The new outdoor Shakespeare theatre has the same intimate actor/audience relationship and feels very similar to the now retired Adams Theatre.

The Utah Shakespeare Festival uses this stage from late June until early September for plays by William Shakespeare and other plays relevant to that era.

The Eileen and Allen Anes Studio Theatre
This indoor theatre is a flexible, black box space that seats 200 people. The Utah Shakespeare Festival uses it for new plays and for their new play readings (Words cubed)
