This month the Tony Award-winning Oregon Shakespeare Festival kicks off its 76th year – and it’s an exciting one. The season runs February through November and includes an 11-play repertoire starring four Shakespeare pieces, a literary classic (“To Kill a Mockingbird”), and a world premiere (“Ghost Light”).

And, for the first time ever, the Ashland-based festival will produce a large-scale classic musical (“The Pirates of Penzance”), featuring a 14-piece orchestra, on its outdoor Elizabethan stage. Another first for OSF is a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience called “Willful,” where the actors actually lead the audience around the OSF grounds as part of the play. It has a limited run this summer so be sure to reserve your tickets soon.

    I liked your post. My wife and I headed over to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and were delighted with Julius Caesar & To Kill a Mockingbird. The cast of each was brilliant. Looking forard to seeing another play or two before the season ends.
