You don't need to head to England to experience the genius of a Shakespearean play. Much closer to home is the Oregon Shakespeare Festival located in Ashland, Oregon. Every year at the end of October you can enjoy on average over ten of Shakespeare's plays performed in both classic and newly imagined style. Separate tickets are needed for each show which is held at one of the event campus's two indoor or one outdoor spaces.

We attend the Festival every year. We mainly go to Shakespeare plays, but at times have tried others. The productions are always well done. Directors often take plays and adapt them to different times or cultural moments, so it is helpful to read the descriptions...More

We were able to get tickets for the merry wives of Windsor. We have seen some Shakespeare over the years but this is the best.

Such a fun few days. The entire atmosphere in Ashland during the Shakespeare Festival is both relaxing and exciting. So many great restaurants in town. See as many shows as you can fit in, all guaranteed to entertain.

If you love Shakespeare, you already know about this festival, but if you like musicals, dramas, comedies, maybe you don't know, and you should. We've come for many years, and haven't loved everything, but always loved most. Check it out.

Over a period of three days, we saw four plays. They were very well-acted, extremely professional. The theaters are in the center of town so they are easy to get to and near wonderful restaurants

Another great season at OSF. Have seen most of the plays. Merry Wives of Windsor was inspired. Loved the 80's music.

Ashland's top quality theater offers varied entertainment that can be compared to Broadway and London. Some may shy away when they hear "Shakespeare", but fear not. These plays are presented so creatively that perhaps a whole new world will open for you. Also, about half...More

The Elizabeth outdoor theater is lovely. Not a bad seat in the house. It makes for a beautiful night outside in the summer months. The concession stands have snacks, drinks, beer, and wine. Diverse group of attendees and plays. The theater is built on a...More

Unless you are adventurous and don't mind off beat theater, stick with the Shakespeare plays. This is their bread and butter of course. Plays like The Odyssey ---- lousy. Saw it in the outdoor theater this summer and people next to me, and in front...More
