Oregon Shakespeare Festival


Often called the Broadway of the West Coast, the Oregon Shakespearean  Festival (OSF) is one of the region's biggest attractions, boasting multiple Tony Awards and accolades. TIME named it as one of the  top five regional theater companies in the country. February through  November, Oregon Shakespearean Festival produces 11 world-class  productions by classical and contemporary playwrights, crafted by some  of the biggest talents in theater today.

Shakespeare Was Born

The  Festival was officially opened on July 2, 1935 with a production of  Twelfth Night. Reserved seats cost $1, with general admission of $.50  for adults and $.25 for children. Even at these prices, the Festival  covered its own expenses. The Festival also absorbed the losses of the  daytime boxing matches that the city held onstage.

A Tradition of Education

Today,  eight decades later, OSF offers world-class entertainment and education  to aspiring actors, artists, directors and producers, alike, through classes and camps held throughout the year.

OSF  has three theatres: two indoor stages, the Angus Bowmer Theatre and the  Thomas Theatre. Its flagship outdoor Allen Elizabethan Theatre is open  early June through mid-October.
