Attraction details
Owner description: 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 Shakespeare's plays performed in both classic and newly imagined style. Separate tickets are needed for each show which is held at one of the event campus's two indoor or one outdoor spaces.

We saw 2 plays on this trip, both in the outdoor Elizabethan stage, and thoroughly enjoyed both. We saw The Heart of Robin Hood, and Cymbaline. Both plays worked well in this venue.

I appreciated the inclusion of the deaf actor, in contrast to some of the other reviewers. I was impressed the first evening, when I saw him in a minor part. It was interesting to see him again in a major part. It does change the interactions, for sure, but I found it interesting.

Although there is a concession stand, the choices are extremely limited, and you are not allowed to bring in food or drink, so plan accordingly.

My first visit to the festival was to see the Robin Hood play. Very entertaining play the actors did a good job of speaking loud so we could hear them well. The show was written with a little comedy added in so it was a nice way to tell the story. Fun choreography with the fight scenes. The lighting was good at setting the mood for each scene as well.

The Outdoor Elizabethan, and the Indoor theaters, the Angus Bowmer and the New (Thomas) Theaters are all COOL! See at least one play in each theater!

The plays are very creative and the venues are quite comfortable. We sometimes find it difficult to follow the dialogue and in the indoor theater (Angus Bowmer) they have added a board (on the left side of the theatre) which shows an electronic rendition of the words being spopken

There are multiple plays being held at the OSF. Check out the schedule and the overviews to choose a play that suits you. THere are multiple venues and times, so there's lots of flexibility and there's some more affordable seating an hour ahead of shows.
