Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

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 hillside, next to OFS other three indoor theaters. The tickets can be purchased online or at the box office. The OFS is popular and it may be best to plan ahead of time.

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 of me fell asleep. Funny though when the play was over they jumped right up and clapped. I think they were glad the play was over. Fantastic venue and the experience is fun in and of itself.

This was our first time back to Ashland in 20 years. Sorry we waited so long to return. It did not disappoint. The selections were wide ranging and we saw The Odyssey, Julius Caesar and UniSon. We enjoyed all of them but we were particularly moved by UniSon. We are August Wilson fans and this production did him justice.
