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...more

This has become a center for new and innovative productions, including the minority of Shakespeare plays they produce. Read up before you go so you can choose wisely; not every play will appeal to everyone, although each one will be thought and conversation provoking. We...More
After an absence of almost three years because we were living overseas, we made it back to the OSF. Too late in the season for the outdoor Theatre. But we saw Othello in the Bowmer Theatre and Manhattan in the small theatre. Both were outstanding.
In Ashland for only one night, we got tickets for “Sense and Sensibility.” The staging was creative and the performance was spirited and clever. Every actor was strong in representing the characters I remember from reading this Jane Austen novel many years ago.
With several theaters indoors and outside you just can’t miss booking a night at The Shakesphere Festival! The plays are varied and not all by Shakesphere. The theater company takes “creative license” sometimes with Classic plays...turning drama into comedy, or changing the setting from Verona,...More

Just amazing offerings with great casts year after year make going to OSF in Ashland a no-brainer. Not just Shakespeare, but world and US premiers all performed sublimely by one of the few repertoire companies anywhere. Plays that began here have found their way to...More
This is the most creative and inventive theater company on the West Coast. Blending traditional Shakespeare with modern themes and environments, this group crafts an exceptional experience. We saw three plays: Loves Labors Lost, Oklahoma and The Book of Will. Each was superb.
I don’t think it’s normal but would be fun......I think others would enjoy it, and you wouldn’t be laughed out of town by any means. Go for it!.......especially if you’re going to the Elizabethan theater.
