Out & About: Oregon Shakespeare Festival

MEDFORD, Ore. — Your high school American history class was never like this. If it had been, you might have paid more attention. It’s the complete history of America, abridged, presented by the Randall Theatre Company of Medford.

The play’s three actors take their audience at a dizzying pace through everything from the discovery of the new world to the presidency of George W. Bush, all in just 90 minutes.

You can see the complete history of America abridged at North Medford High School’s Black Box Theatre through February 24th; this is Randall’s temporary home while their roof is being repaired.Reserved seat tickets are ten dollars and can be ordered online or by phone. Or you can “pay what you want” for general admission tickets at the door for any remaining seats.

From the Land Down Under comes a Valentine’s treat that brings with it some tenor flair. Hailed for both their musicianship and showmanship, “the ten tenors” return to the Craterian once more to lend their magnificent voices to a captivating blend of musical styles.

These awesome Aussies are belting out pop, rock, and opera ballads with an approach that is wonderfully unstuffy and playful. The ten tenors invariably score a perfect “10” from audiences!
You can see them tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m. at the Craterian theater at the collier center in Medford. Contact the Craterian Box Office for ticket information.

The Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF) is about to kick off it’s 2013 season. You can see “The Taming of the Shrew”, “My Fair Lady”, “Two Trains Running”, and “King Lear” this weekend for preview prices.

The regular season opens on Friday, February 22. Contact the OSF Box Office for ticket information.
