Don't be fooled by the name: Shakespeae Festival! of the first six plays this season only two are by Shakespeare! You are sure to find a great play you will love!

Check out this season. Ticket prices have been reduced to $35 to $75. They have been double that for years!

Shakespeare season runs from April through November!

 

The Oregon Shakespearean Festival was officially born on July 2, 1935 with a production of Twelfth Nigh and Merchant of Venice. 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 match that the City — which feared that the plays would lose money — held onstage.

Special guests have included Chris Cooper, Lynn Shelton, James Ivory, Ty Burrell, Albert Maysles, Barbara Kopple, Helen Hunt, and Bruce Campbell. The festival typically features its Oregon connections with filmmakers such as Klamath Falls native James Ivory and Jacksonville resident Bruce Campbell ("My Name is Bruce," 2007).
