Artistic Initiative Fund

The Utah Shakespeare Festival's newest fund was established to enhance the artistic excellence of all Festival productions.


An Artistic Initiative Fund was recently established at the Utah Shakespeare Festival. The new fund was initiated in conjunction with the announcement of David Ivers and Brian Vaughn as the new artistic leadership of the Festival. Created to promote the Utah Shakespeare Festival’s growth in artistic excellence, the fund consists of three major components:

  1. Establish and identify a core group of actors, directors, and designers who regularly appear on and off our stages.

  2. Utilize resources from the fund to support, enhance, and increase the size and scope of our production design aesthetic.

  3. Increase the Utah Shakespeare Festival’s national and international exposure and profile; this includes attending national conferences, utilizing new technology to support our marketing strategies, and exploring outreach and touring opportunities.

To date, the Artistic Initiative Fund has raised over $100,000. Thank you for your generosity.

Bardway Baby!, the Festival's annual late-night concert of Broadway show tunes performed by Festival company members, is the major event in support of the Artistic Initiative Fund.

Bardway Baby!will be presented August 7, 2015 at 11:30 p.m. in the Auditorium Theatre. Tickets are available now through the Ticket Office.
