No tickets required. No money required. No age limit. The Oregon Shakespeare Festival's Green Show is a dream come true for audiences.

On a greyish-white stage on the Bricks, the space between the open-air Allen Elizabethan Theatre and the indoor Angus Bowmer Theatre in Ashland, the Green Show runs before each summertime Elizabethan Theatre show, weather and forest fires permitting. Depending on who's scheduled, the 45-minute performance might set the mood for Elizabethan or Bowmer Theatre plays, or simply provide high-quality local, regional, national or international entertainment for anyone who's in town.
