ASHLAND, Ore. — The official opening for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival's (OSF) 2019 season is just a week away, and once again the festival will offer discounted rush tickets for select dates to benefit local food banks.

"Those wishing to participate must donate at least one non-perishable food item for each $10 ticket purchased," OSF said in a statement on Friday. A comparable cash donation will also be accepted in lieu of a food donation.

The Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s 2019 season runs from March 8 through Oct. 27. The full 2019 playbill includes:

Angus Bowmer Theatre

Thomas Theatre

Allen Elizabethan Theatre

(Various Venues, Times)

 

 

Tickets will be available two hours before the play begins on select dates: 11:30 a.m. for matinees and 6:00 p.m. for evening performances. Rush tickets are sold at the OSF Box Office windows only, and supply is limited.

OSF said that its 2019 season is dedicated to the memory of Pacific Northwest titan of industry and theatre patron Paul Allen.

“Generations of theatre-goers have been delighted by the magic on OSF stages—and much of that magic has been made possible by Paul Allen,” said OSF Artistic Director Bill Rauch. “This season’s playbill embodies the remarkable power of rotating repertory that makes the Oregon Shakespeare Festival such a thrilling place to experience live theatre. The excellence of artistry lives in every project and in our commitment to innovative classics as well as new works that often become the classics of tomorrow.”

Preview performances begin on Friday, and the official season kickoff premieres next Friday, March 8, in the Angus Bowmer Theatre with Shakespeare’s As You Like It.
