ASHLAND, Ore. -- It's a busy time of year at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Production crews are on stage preparing the Allen Elizabethan Theatre for the opening outdoor shows of the 2016 season starting in June.
Stage crews spent the day Wednesday removing scenery from "The Winter's Tale" using the new loading dock and worked on changing the stage for upcoming performances of "The Wiz." The Allen Elizabethan Theatre will also feature a third show,"Hamlet," this summer.
Preview shows start in the Elizabethan Theatre on June 7. The Green Show performances also open that night on the bricks.
