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.

We come to watch plays about once every 3 years. The ones we've seen have been professional, well acted, and staged well. The plays presented aren't always a Shakespeare type. The last time we went, there was a production of Oklahoma. It's best to buy...More

We saw 4 plays in two days, all excellent. Henry V is superb, Othello and Sense and Sensibility were excellent. A new play, Manahatta, was stunning.

“Oklahoma” the musical in Ashland at the Angus Bowmer Theatre is such a new take on an old standard. The LGBTQ version offers food for thought. Excellent orchestra, and cast. Fun show. My only complaint is 2.5 hours. Matinee is best.

You can always stump Easterners by asking them where is the oldest Elizabethan theater. Inevitably they come up with someplace in New England. Then they go the the OREGON Shakesphere Festival and understand. Yes it is just excellent. The talent is superb. Aside from the...More

Hi JDP, If you have a particular show (or shows) in mind, I would recommend checking availability and booking in advance. Some of them can definitely sell out well ahead of time. That said, if you have flexibility as to what... More
