Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s 75th Anniversary

Jun 23, 2010 1 Comment by

One of the largest regional theatres in the country is located in a town of more than 21,000 people. With a budget of about $27 million dollars a year, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival is the only theatre in the country that performs two different plays a day on three different stages 10 months of the year.¬†¬†While nonprofit theatres struggle financially, OSF finished the 2009 season in the black largely due to the loyalty of its audience and quality of its work. This year OSF celebrates its 75th anniversary. This is the inaugural piece in Dmae Roberts’ new series, “Oregon Treasures”, which features veteran artists and arts organizations. It aired on National Public Radio earlier this year.
