“One Great Play after another.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

I have always had a fantastic experience with each play I have watched at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. My wife and I are constantly amazed at the various ways in which the plays are presented. This year, both plays we attended were conducted in the traditional setting and manner. The Heart of Robin Hood in the Elizabethan Stage and A Street Car Named Desire in the Angus Bowmer Theatre were both brilliant performances. The box seating we had this year at the Elizabethan Stage that allowed us a little more freedom of movement during the play to accommodate my medical condition was well worth the extra price we paid. We plan to retain our membership and keep attending plays at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival well into the future.

“Love this Theater/Festival!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Just saw two marvelous plays:
-Mid Summer Nights Dream
-Street Car Named Desire

My husband is a hard critic and he gave them both a 10!
The acting was Broadway caliber.
We laughed at Nights Dream and cried at Street Car.
All within 24 hours.
Incredible acting!
And settings.

“Great cultural fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

What an enjoyable experience! How fortunate are the citizens of Ashland to have ready access to this amazing entertainment and educational experience. We attended an evening performance of “The Heart of Robin Hood” on the Elizabethan Stage and found both the production and the venue delightful. HIGHLY recommended everyone take advantage of this cultural resource whenever in the area!

“A Must Do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Once in your life, you must visit Ashland and take in a play. Preferably in the outdoor Elizabethan Stage. Unfortunately, during our visit it rained but the actors carried on and it did not affect their performance.
