Overview

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 have been coming to the OSF since the 1970's. Always some plays are better than others, understandably. Unfortunately, artistically, things seem to be going in a direction I dislike; seemingly pandering to baser behavior, perhaps to get an audience? More gratuitous violence and crude,...More

We saw 5 plays and liked them all. Combine this with a trip to Crater Lake and a rafting adventure. Ashland is a beautiful & friendly small town surrounded by large hills & small mountains.

Went to see Merry Wives of Windsor. It was a fabulous show with sprinkles of 80's music. The costumes were of the Shakespeareian period. Loved it!

Our first trip to the outdoor theatre to see Merry Wives of Windsor. This play was great! The director had brilliantly juxtaposed some fun 80's disco music to this play yet retaining the overall Elizabethan feel. Was fresh, funny, fun, and so well-acted. We enjoyed...More

It had been decades since I had been to the festival, and bought a couple of tickets at the very last minute when stopping in Ashland for the night. The Elizabethan (the outdoor venue) is amazing. We saw The Merry Wives of Windsor, which was...More

After my third visit to Ashland - my second in three years - I am forced to question whether the Oregon Shakespeare Festival is still a good place to see Shakespeare. OSF remains an interesting place to see new plays - and plays from non-Anglo...More

We love coming here every year. The plays are always amazing. Summer is crowded but fun. The off-season is wonderful too. The theaters are right in the center of town.
