ASHLAND, Ore. -- The unhealthy levels of wildfire smoke is leading the Oregon Shakespeare Festival to cancel tonight's outdoor performance of Romeo and Juliet. The current air quality readings are in an unhealthy zone, which puts performers and audience members at risk.

OSF is offering an alternate indoor venue performance tonight of Romeo and Juliet at Ashland High School Mountain Avenue Theatre (201 S. Mountain Ave., Ashland) though space is extremely limited and tickets are first come, first served. The performance will begin at 8:00 p.m. and the Box Office at AHS will open at 7:00 p.m. A map and direct directions to the AHS theatre are included below.

OSF says they have limited tickets available for tonight’s 8:00 p.m. indoor performances of Rodger’s and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! in the Angus Bowmer Theatre and Henry V in the Thomas Theatre. If you prefer to exchange your tickets for one of these performances, you may do so now—you do not have to wait until this evening if you know you would like to exchange now. Please call 800-219-8161 or stop by the Box Office on Pioneer Street.

OSF says to read the following statement carefully:

If you wish to attend the alternative performance at Ashland High School, please go to AHS with your original Romeo and Juliet ticket to exchange into the alternate performance, the Box Office opens there at 7:00 p.m. Concessions (see menu here) and a pop-up Tudor Guild gift shop will be onsite. You may preorder Concessions items for intermission before the show, and bottled water and beverages in OSF commemorative cups will be allowed inside the theatre. There will be no refunds, exchanges or vouchers after attending an alternate performance.
