In the 80's, while at OSU (Go Beaves!) a friend introduced me to this wonderful event. A few years back, as part of a vacation to show my family Oregon, we attended (Measure for Measure, Julius Caesar, Imaginary Invalid). This year, as part of a longer trip to the Pacific Northwest, we were back (A Wrinkle in Time, Coconuts). Each... More

Go see "Into the Woods!" It's incredible! They really put their own artistic spin on this production. Incredible performances, fun, heart-warming, and even some magic! Fabulous. Run, don't walk. We are theatre people (met in theatre in college) but my husband is not really a musical theatre guy AND HE LOVED THIS SHOW. Also, my husband and I went to... More

My daughter and I plan a trip every year to see the performances. We typically go to 2 or 3 shows in a three day period. The Elizabethan Theater is our favorite. This year they added Mics to the cast - This has okay but at times the Mics did not work. Maybe the mic system will be better next... More

Great production of Richard III in the outdoor Elizabethan theater. The actors were terrific, particularly the lead actor who played Richard, and the setting is very atmospheric and lovely.

I've only been to OSF twice; last year to catch Cymbeline, and this year to watch Into the Woods. Into the Woods was entertaining...so worth the drive to Ashland. I dilly-dallied about watching the play so we were left with last row seats (it was almost soldout when I made my online reservation!). Luckily, there didn't seem to be a... More

Ashland Oregon and the OSF are always a special treat. Sometimes the productions are clear winners and sometimes you get to see the world premiere of a play that has promise but needs work, revision, and, most of all, editing. So far this week we were rapt for three and half hours at the first performance ever of 'the Great... More

This year I decided to go for a road trip down to the festival with my eight year old. It has been over 10 years since I last saw a play at OSF, so I wasn't sure if it was going to work for a child with a growing interest in the theater. It turned out to be an amazing... More

I've been going to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival since 1969 when the motto was "Stay Four Days, See Four Plays." It was been a source of pride and joy to see OSF grow into one of the top theatres in the United States. Season after season and play after play, my soul, heart and mind are touched and moved by...

I am a local and go to a few plays every year. All the seats are great and the plays are so well done. They do have 'budget seats' available if you buy your tickets in advance. These seats are just fine.

I can not gush enough about the quality of the productions at the Ashland Shakespeare Festival. Well run and well organized. I can't think of a down side.
