About the Neil Simon Festival
The Neil Simon Festival showcases plays from the namesake himself, as well as other works by artists carrying on the tradition of Simon’s unique style. For a month during the summer, you can opt to see one or all of the shows that the festival brings to the stage.
The shows playing during the Neil Simon Festival 2017 season include:
- Neil Simon’s Broadway Bound
- Neil Simon’s The Dinner Party

- Fireside in Zarahemla
There is also a special, one night only event where new playwrights will showcase their work. Attend the 7th Annual New Play Contest on Friday, July 28 at 5 pm to see plays from up and coming artists. You’ll have a chance to participate in a discussion afterward and help the creators improve their scripts. The winner will have a full-scale version of the play produced during next year’s festival.
