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.

Went to see Merry Wives of Windsor. It was a fabulous show with sprinkles of 80's music. The costumes were of the Shakespeareian period. Loved it!

Our first trip to the outdoor theatre to see Merry Wives of Windsor. This play was great! The director had brilliantly juxtaposed some fun 80's disco music to this play yet retaining the overall Elizabethan feel. Was fresh, funny, fun, and so well-acted. We enjoyed...More

After my third visit to Ashland - my second in three years - I am forced to question whether the Oregon Shakespeare Festival is still a good place to see Shakespeare. OSF remains an interesting place to see new plays - and plays from non-Anglo...More

We love coming here every year. The plays are always amazing. Summer is crowded but fun. The off-season is wonderful too. The theaters are right in the center of town.

Like previous seasons, OSF continues to offer slick, professional productions which can be different and thought- provoking. Additional extras are provided by tours, Noon talks and pre-evening play talks. Getting increasingly preachy, which is one downside but ease to ignore.

We enjoyed our trip here over 10 years ago. Our appreciation for the performance artists were heightened this time around. We bought our tickets earlier this time around. We were able to obtain seats closer to the stage for Beauty & the Beast and Shakespeare...More

This is the place for live theater! It is an open air venue that offers seating with backs and you can rent a cushion for $2. I think any seat in the house would be a good one. The acting was superb. The sound was...More
