ASHLAND, Ore. -- The Oregon Shakespeare Festival is kicking off its outdoor season. 

Audiences were able to see 'Romeo and Juliet' Friday night at 8 p.m. 'The Book of Will' opens Saturday and 'Love Labors Lost' opens Sunday.

Communications Manager Julie Cortez said this is the first year 'The Book of Will,' written by Lauren Gunderson, will be on the stage.

"What's really noteworthy about that is she is the first female playwright to have a holy original work on this stage in our big thousand plus seat theatre," Cortez said. 

Those shows will join a handful of other plays already on the stage.

This season is dedicated to the memory of actor and 14-season company member, G. Valmont Thomas. He passed away in December after battling cancer. Thomas was set to perform in 'Romeo and Juliet' this year.
