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.

While Shakespeare's plays originally formed the basis of the festival, they have expanded to include both new and "old" plays. The festival actively trys to engage young people (esp teenagers) in learning to appreciate live theater. I witnessed a group of teenagers leaving "A Midsummer...More

This theater is as good as it gets. New York quality in a charming small town in scenic southern Oregon. You definitely don't want to miss it.

We have seen many plays on and off Broadway when we lived in NYC. We love theater. This repertoire company is as good as it gets. In fact, some of OSF's productions are better than Broadway - we saw August Wilson's Ma Rainey in both...More

I was freezing during a winter performance (prior to Dec 2010). It was a "modern" version of Othello. I didn't enjoy the take, especially since a modern British version was harder to follow. Hard to be comfortable and enjoy because of how cold it was...More
