TALENT, Ore. --The Oregon Shakespeare Festival is kicking off its 2015 season this weekend. To help celebrate the festival's 80th year, Newswatch 12 has teamed up with OSF to take you Behind the Curtain.

Just a few miles down the road from Ashland and the bricks of OSF, is the Camelot Theatre in Talent. Right now, the company is putting on a  play called "A Question of Words."

It is the first time Camelot or any other theater has put the play on state,  taking the role of Camelot's first world premiere production.

This is a large feat for any theatre, and Camelot directors say southern Oregon's support of the arts and the large influences from OSF helped make it possible.

Director Livia Genise refers to OSF as the mother ship of theater organizations. She says it brings more people who are interested in the arts to the area.

One of those being the playwright of "A Question of Words," Richard Manley.

This is the first time his play has been put on stage, and Manley was thrilled that it was done in southern Oregon.

"I have fortunately been in Ashland three times in the last four years so I've gotten to know this part of Oregon and I'm amazed and delighted at the enthusiasm and support that i found here," said A Question of Words Playwright, Richard Manley.

Since opening night at the beginning of February, the play has been shown only 10 times and will complete its run at the Camelot in just a little over a week.

For information about tickets, you can visit Camelot Theatre's website here, or call the box office at 541-535-5250.
