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.

Always lots of different choices, some safe and some adventurous, but always high quality. For good seats need to order in advance but sometimes last minute works as well.

We use the OSF to re-connect with long-time friends for several days every October. Plays often address social issues of the day; we find the dramas to be good ways of learning other points of view, helping us to grow in our understanding of people....More

I've loved many of the plays I've seen in Ashland. The venue is always beautiful and lively and the pre-play concerts are a nice touch. However, last night we saw what was a very disappointing play, Merry Wives of Windsor and ended up leaving at...More
