This morning we walked before we drove to Mesquite where we had breakfast at a casino.002

We drove through some beautiful desert and gorges on our way to Cedar City.006Our first play today was Noises Off, great farce.014

After a wonderful supper at a steak house where there are numerous hummingbird feeders…008012

we checked into the hotel, unpacked and headed back to the Festival. Tonight we saw A Midsummer Nights Dream. Such fun!


It’s been a long, but fun day. We are off to bed with no explanations of the plays…sorry!!

now Mike will add...

"Noises Off" is a farce that deals with what is going on behind the scenes as a play is being acted out on stage. It deals with personal interactions, timing of stage events, props that don't work, and general mayham.

"Midsummer Night's Dream" is probably shakespeare's best known comedy. It is about lovers that can't get together and how they finally get together with the aid of faries. The play is set in an enchanted forest where the faires have the power to make wrong things right.

Beautiful scenery! Did you and your friends all plan to wear red colored shirts or did it just work out that way? Good explanation of the plays!
