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.

If you roll your eyes because is "Shakespeare again," stop rolling. Most of the productions in a season are not Shakespeare -- there's a lot of new theater presented as well. And even the Bard's classics are often reimagined by a skilled director in a...More

Thank you, Courtney! It was indeed an amazing weekend, made even better by getting to meet and spend time with you and Amanda. Please don't be strangers, and I definitely hope to check out what you all are doing at Two River Theater soon!

Just finished watching Julius Caesar. VERY well done. I'm not usually a fan of modern costumes and minimalist sets for historical theater, but this fun to watch. The lines were so well delivered that the overall effect was impressive.

This is not a place to miss. This is our 5th trip out and it just gets better and better. The shows are top, top quality. Nothing shoddy or low quality.

We've been attending plays at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival for several years - we average three plays each season. We have never been disappointed. The productions are of the highest quality.
