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.

OSF productions are world class! The acting, sets, costumes are all at the top of the field. Each theater has its own character -- the Thomas is small and flexible and audience is close to the action. The Bowmer is large and comfortable. The Elizabethan...More

Well, someone decided that Pericles would be a good play to put on. Having never read it, much less seen it performed, we opted instead for Guys and Dolls, which I claimed to have seen as a child on Broadway. The performance exceeded all expectations....More

Went to Ashland for a long weekend of shows and was not disappointed. The talent and quality of the performances are why people come from all over the world to OSF. It's a MUST-SEE when you are visiting Oregon.

I have been coming here for five years and the 2015 season was the first time I have been disappointed in two of the plays I have seen. I always could detect the gimmicks and stupid staging but this year the shows themselves failed me....More

Most of the reviews here are clearly manufactured by the management of OSF. Anyone who is paying attention knows that the plays have become "wonky", tasteless, and usually a big let down. The actors are great and wasted on this material. The current line up...More
