The purpose of this project is to identify and explain the Utah Shakespearean Festival phenomenon, from a managerial and operations standpoint in particular. Considerable discourse will be devoted to the underlying factors leading to the establishment, steady growth, and financial stability of the Utah Shakespearean Festival. Upon close inspection, the Festival examined is principally-, philosophically-, and personality-driven. Very close attention will be taken to examine the principles, practices and the personalities that have made the USF what it is today; Other questions will be answered throughout this thesis. How is the Festival run? How does it continue to grow and operate alongside (and as an agency of) a public university that is itself experiencing exponential growth? How is it that the USF can produce six high-quality repertory productions and open them within the claustrophobic space of six days without obvious signs of trauma? (Abstract shortened by UMI.).
