Overview

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.

First saw plays in Ashland with I was 10 years old. Been there most years since. Shakespeare performed so beautifully, now including modern plays, musicals, premiers, American history series ("All the Way" and "The Great Society" are fabulous - modern tragedies in the Shakespearean mold)....More

We saw the world primere of The Great Society which is the second part to All the Way. We saw All the Way on Broadway which of course was excellent (won a well deserved Tony) so we wanted to see part 2 of LBJ's presidency....More

This festival has an extended season spanning almost three quarters of a year. A play commissioned by the festival, "All the Way" (with LBJ) won this year's Tony Award. We went to see "the Great Society" which is a continuation of "All the Way." This...More

"The Great Society" about LBJ's decisions during the Southern voting rights marches and escalation of the Vietnam War was excellent. "Cocoanuts", the Marx Brothers farce was terrific and fully of energy -- lots of fun. The three other plays we attended were very disappointing, even...More

What a wonderful vacation - to combine the outdoors with top notch theater. We saw RIchard III, fabulous production, and Into the Woods, also excellent. I hadn't realized it was repertory theater, a lot of hard work there. But it was fun to see the...More

OSF was a great experience. Lots of different plays - something for everyone. Buy tickets ahead of time for the best prices and selection. OSF has very reasonable and accommodating return/refund policies should your plans change.
