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.

I felt so fortunate to see Part 2 of "The Great Society" in October 2014. Part 1 has been an enormous success on Broadway recently. I'd love to see that, too, and no doubt will some day. Part 2 was superbly staged and acted, telling...More

This is the first year to see a play in the Angus Bowmer Theatre and it was great. I don't think there ARE any bad seats. We were fortunate to be in the second row and being just about level with the stage we were...More

Our 4-day "vacation" was a theater-intense experience that was not restful but definitely intellectually stimulating. Oregon Shakespeare Festival is celebrating its 80th anniversary though this was my first experience, attending with friends who had been there annually for many years. So going along with their...More

Rarely do I find a show that isn't fabulous at OSF. This show didn't disappoint. "Guys and Dolls" was terrific, with amazing singing and the dance numbers were fabulously executed. I'm so lucky that we get to see this caliber of production here in Southern...More
