Overall full of class even though I am not a real Shakespeare fan as the acting is top rate! Seven plays in five days…all but one was very enjoyable.

Each of the three plays, two comedies and one history was brilliant. Great entertainment, beautiful theaters and superb acting.

The staff in the ticket office were very informative about the plays. The theater was small clean great stage and play. If you want to pay a fair price get your tickets asap as the price goes up as more tickets are sold. We paid a hefty price but was not disappointed

Theatre of the highest excellence in great surroundings. A great mix of classic and new plays. Very cool that plays are cast in "rep," so you might see an actor one night playing a love-struck prince in a Shakespeare play, and the next night playing a Puerto Rican veteran from the Iraq war with PTSD.

What a fabulous play! Great script, fine acting, evocative of an important period in history. We also saw "The Tempest", which was beautifully staged.

love the live feeling of this troupe - invigorating and stellar performances of not only the Bard, but plenty of new works and reworkings of other classics. The productions are spot on and wonderfully detailed - and my god, can they do comedy! The outdoor theatre is a wonder of acoustics and gives you that extra added fun of thinking... More

I'm an avid theatre-goer and professional and can't believe I'd never been here before. Got to see 2 shows - one in the Elizabethan and one inside the theatre next to it. Both were top notch productions. We got to introduce our kids (11,8) to Shakespeare and they had a good time. And were were charmed by the town of... More

This was our second trip to go to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. The theaters are very nice. We went to the afternoon show in the Cocoanuts show at the Angus Bowmer theater. This theater is an indoor theater with air conditioning. This Marx Brothers show kept us laughing and enjoying the show from start to end At 6:00 they have... More

After living in the area for two years, I finally decided my husband and I needed to experience this local treat. The OSF was a thrill to experience. We chose the outdoor, Elizabethan theatre and was so entralled by that experience. The setting and actors are both world-class. And the tickets are such a value! $25 only!

We only stayed one night and we were delighted to secure tickets to A Wrinkle In Time. Wonderful production all around; stage setting, acting, lighting, direction.
