OSF Mission Statement
The mission of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival is to create fresh and bold interpretations of classic and contemporary plays in repertory, shaped by the diversity of our American culture, using Shakespeare as our standard and inspiration.
The Oregon Shakespeare Festival's vision is to create theatre of extraordinary quality in which we proceed with daring to fulfill our artistic dreams. The 1959 Elizabethan Stage was designed by OSF Principal Scenic and Theatre Designer Richard L. Hay and patterned on London's 1599 Fortune Theatre. The Allen Pavilion encircling the seating area and providing improved acoustics was completed in 1992.
The OSF season runs from late February through first November; you'll find more to do mid-June through September, but tickets are less expensive from February through June and in October, November.
