Oregon Shakespeare Festival

ASHLAND, ORE.: Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF) artistic director Bill Rauch announced the festival’s 2017, season today, including a diverse array of classics, new work, and musicals.

“It brings me such joy to share these 11 amazing, powerful stories with our audiences,” said Rauch in a statement. “The sense of adventure, discovery, and revelation is palpable in every play. The 2017 season represents our ever-growing passion and dedication to represent voices and stories that reflect the cultural richness, and at times the painful legacy, of our country. The season also takes us deeper into our commitment to our namesake playwright and the exciting Canon-in-a-Decade project, with a particularly enticing opportunity in our most intimate theatre space: Patrons will have the rare opportunity to see both parts of Henry IV in the Thomas Theatre, perhaps as part of a same-day marathon.”
