wahlee: (Nothing ever fatigues me)
How many of you would be interested in a trip down to Cedar City to the Utah Shakespearean Festival From July 5- July 8? The plays being presented are Pride and Prejudice, The 39 Steps, Great Expectations, Much Ado About Nothing, The Merchant of Venice, and Macbeth. I KNOW. It would be your choice as to which of the plays you would like to see (the current group I've been talking with want to see all but Great Expectations), and any and all extracurricular activities (movies, shopping, visits to national parks/monuments) would of course be optional.

The reason I'm asking is that I've been looking into vacation rental properties as well as hotels, and if we can get a big enough group together, it could be extremely cost effective to rent a house (we're talking $200 a night split between 8-10 people) as well as WAY FUN. But I'd need to jump on that soonish, because of course those sorts of things go sooner than your run-of-the-mill hotel room.

Cedar City is about a 2.5 hour drive from Las Vegas and about a 4 hour drive away from Salt Lake City (these are the closest major airports; Cedar does have an airport, but it's teeny and would require buying a separate ticket, I'd assume). Depending on how many people we get/where they're coming from, carpooling is of course an option. The idea would be to arrive in Cedar in time for the Monday plays, then leave on Thursday morning. If people are interested (it being the 4th of July the day before we hope to leave) there may be some extra partying in Salt Lake the weekend before. We picked those dates to try to avoid some of the more major movie releases, since Sarah (one of the girls who is coming) works at a movie theater and has to worry about those things. This is also the reason that we chose Monday-Thursday rather than a weekend (and also because tickets are cheaper for the first part of the week).

Think of it as Wahleecon: The Reunion or Bickerfest 2010.

Info for the Shakespearean Festival can be found at Bard.org, including ticket prices, area attractions, etc. Ask [livejournal.com profile] connielane and [livejournal.com profile] angua9: the Utah Shakefest is a fabulous experience, with first-rate productions surrounded by natural beauty. And, dude. P&P. Much Ado. Macbeth. HOW CAN YOU SAY NO!??!
