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.

What a treasure we have in this corner of Oregon! In the village of Ashland the restaurants, parks, even street people, all swirl in the galaxy of theatre and Shakespeare. A lively mix. A warm September evening could have been enough; but here we were:...More

We love Ashland and come twice a year for the plays. This fall we saw five plays in three days. We loved two of them, hated one, and really liked the other two. But regardless of whether you like a specific play, the experience is...More

A wide variety of plays with excellent acoustics and line-of-sight in all three theatres. The Shakespearian open-air theatre was a special treat. Allow time to enjoy one or more shows ... it may well become a "life memory"

We loved the 2014 all female cast of "The Two Gentlemen of Verona." My husband was a first time play watcher, but he was not disappointed.
