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...more

My heart and mind awaken my spirit to prompt a visit to a place I love. Ashland's theater district is alive with love, anticipation, peace, joy, and fun during the festival season. The fragrant air drifting softly through Lithia Park welcomes visitors with a gentle...More
We’ve been members for 4 years now and have seen almost every show—even when the fires in Northern California last year forced OSF to move 4 production from the outdoor theater to the local school theater.we were disappointed but seeing Romeo and Juliet with minimal...More
We go to The Oregon Shakespeare Festival In late May and early September. The last time we were there, September 2018, we took the backstage tour. Excellent. I highly recommend the tour to anyone going to the OSF. There are many motels close to the...More
This is a wonderful venue. If you have never gone this should be on your bucket list. Due to the fires they are in need of financial help, if you can please help even if it's only a few dollars. 2019 is full of wonderful...More
This has become a center for new and innovative productions, including the minority of Shakespeare plays they produce. Read up before you go so you can choose wisely; not every play will appeal to everyone, although each one will be thought and conversation provoking. We...More
After an absence of almost three years because we were living overseas, we made it back to the OSF. Too late in the season for the outdoor Theatre. But we saw Othello in the Bowmer Theatre and Manhattan in the small theatre. Both were outstanding.
In Ashland for only one night, we got tickets for “Sense and Sensibility.” The staging was creative and the performance was spirited and clever. Every actor was strong in representing the characters I remember from reading this Jane Austen novel many years ago.
With several theaters indoors and outside you just can’t miss booking a night at The Shakesphere Festival! The plays are varied and not all by Shakesphere. The theater company takes “creative license” sometimes with Classic plays...turning drama into comedy, or changing the setting from Verona,...More

I don’t think it’s normal but would be fun......I think others would enjoy it, and you wouldn’t be laughed out of town by any means. Go for it!.......especially if you’re going to the Elizabethan theater.
Hi, we are visiting Ashland for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival on Sept 18 and 19. We are thinking of driving up the Oregon Coast from Sept 20-22. What would be a good itinerary? Not sure if we can make it all the way to Astoria, which seems to be an interesting town recommended on this forum. Any suggestions? And where best to stay for the couple of nights? Thanks.

Newport and Astoria my two favorite towns on Oreg coast to spend a couple of days in both have several things to do. Bandon also good beach town with nice downtown. Think starting in Ashland, Newport may be best for you. Astoria quite a bit further drive.

Hello! I am looking for some input...my husband and I are going to be driving through Oregon as a part of a long summer road trip. Oregon is not one of the areas where we get to spend much time, sadly, this time around, so we are mainly driving through. But, I would like to stop at a couple of key spots at least for a little bit. What I am struggling with right now, is whether just to drive most of the coast or to try and get inland as well. The top three sites we are interested in besides...More

"We will enter WA from Northern California". That is quite impossible. How will you get from Alaska to California? After you "drive through Oregon" where will you be going? I really think you need to take a look at a map of Oregon and map out a route so you can visually see where you are coming from and where you are going to. Make a plan, and come back with it so you can be helped. Good luck.
How are conditions in Ashland now? Is it possible to enjoy the outdoor performances?

Fires to the east, fires to the west. Whichever way the wind blows, Ashland is looking at hot, smoky conditions for awhile. I don't know what the festival's policy is regarding the Elizabethan theater. I know they don't usually cancel for rain.
