My situation: Family of 4, 2 kids ages 6 & 8. Purchased A+ tickets, row P under awning for Elizabethan theater 8pm and A+ row 1 tickets for 1:30pm Angus Bowman (indoor) theater. The OSF is an excellent experience. This review is for the facilities, not the show(s), although, I believe the OSF has very high quality actors, singers, and... More

Ashland's Oregon Shakespeare Festival is a true theatrical treasure. The organizers always select a marvelous group of diverse plays, both classic and contemporary, and recruit a team of excellent actors to play the diverse roles. Much as I love Shakespeare, my favorite plays are the new contemporary productions and the Festival has really helped bring some excellent playwrights to the... More

In 2015, I saw, Sweat, Sweet Blossom, Pericles, and Guys and Dolls. I have attended plays here many seasons. I am never disappointed. There is a tradition of excellence. I am never disappointed in the quality of the productions. The contemporary productions are thought provoking and make for good 'after theater' conversations.

This was the highlight of our stay in the area. Wonderful interpretation of Much Ado About Nothing and a good time was had by all. The theater was great but we had to be inside because of all the smoke in the atmosphere.

We bring our kids to the OSF at least once a year to see a couple plays/musicals. The performances are always very well done.

This was my tenth year in a row attending this exceptional festival. I usually see nine or ten plays and eagerly await the announcement of the next year's play list. Costumes, lighting, scenery, and especially the acting are all magnificent! They present a variety of productions from Shakespeare (my favorite), to musical comedies, and modern and classic plays. It's a... More

This was a treasure, not just for Oregon, but for the nation. High acclaims, Shakespeare at its finest and an occasional great play thrown in. My last visit may well be my last. Now there is a artistic director from Los Angeles who has decided to become "relevant" and "theatrical' in the tradition Sacramento's dinner theater.. So instead of Shakespeare... More

There are many plays available to choose from and all are good. They have three theaters. We saw Guys and Dolls today and it was fantastic. The talent is always good for all plays. The tickets are not cheap but worth the cost. We come back when we can and we are always impressed with each play.

Our first time at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and now we are wondering what took us so long! We can't wait to return next year. The array of plays is outstanding and the performances memorable.
