Things to Do OFF the River: OSF

The Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF) is a not-for-profit professional theatre founded in 1935. The season runs from February through early November, and there are three theatres: our two indoor stages, the Angus Bowmer Theatre and the Thomas Theatre, and the flagship outdoor Elizabethan Stage, which opens in early June and runs through mid-October. 

There are 11 different plays that include four by Shakespeare and seven by other classic writers, as well as modern and contemporary work and world premieres. When you visit you can see one or two plays or up to nine plays in one week!
