The Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Oregon
Founded in 1935, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival is a not-for-profit professional theatre company located in the City of Ashland in southern Oregon. The performance season runs ten months of the year, from February through early November.
The OSF’s Mission Statement:
“Inspired by Shakespeare’s work and the cultural richness of the United States, we reveal our collective humanity through illuminating interpretations of new and classic plays, deepened by the kaleidoscope of rotating repertory.”
The OSF season features eleven works by William Shakespeare and by other classic writers, as well as modern and contemporary work and original world premieres. Plays are performed in three theatres: two indoor stages, the Angus Bowmer Theatre and the Thomas Theatre, and the outdoor Allen Elizabethan Theatre.
The Green Show presents FREE performances on an outdoor stage in the courtyard by visiting acts before the evening shows (outdoor performances run from early June to mid-October). Backstage tours, park talks, lectures, classes, workshops, pre and post-show conversations, community and special events are also available for visitors.
The OSF welcomes everyone and believes the inclusion of diverse people, ideas, cultures and traditions enriches both insights into the work presented on stage and in our relationships with each other. They are committed to diversity!
