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 had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The theater was small enough and I don't think there was a bad seat anywhere. The actors were all very talented, the costumes very nice and the story was very well told with plenty of humor.

The Odyssey was wonderful. This was the quickest 3.5 hours we have ever spent. The acting, as always, was excellent. The special effects were very clever, and the costumes brilliant!
