Southern Utah University and the Utah Shakespeare Festival have announced that Big D Construction has been selected as the general contractor to head construction of the new Beverley Taylor Sorensen Center for the Arts.

Festival Co-Artistic Director David Ivers expressed enthusiasm at this latest milestone in the project.

"We are excited to begin this thrilling relationship with Big D Construction and all of our partners at the Festival, and see it realize it's dream of the construction of a world-class facility. The new center for the arts will draw artists, educators and patrons alike to Southern Utah. We are deeply grateful to our supporters, and we're looking forward to having some red dust flying all over Cedar City," Ivers said.

The $35 million-plus project includes two new Utah Shakespeare Festival theaters, an artistic and production facility, and the Southern Utah Museum of Art.
