The Oregon Shakespeare Festival is a world renowned nonprofit professional theatre whose season runs from February through early November. The OSF boasts two indoor stages and one outdoor Elizabethan stage! They offer over 11 plays a season; with 4 by Shakespear and 7 other by classic writers.  As well as modern and contemporary premieres!  This allows visitors to see up to 9 plays a week! The festival also offers a diverse range of experiences during the festival to all!

As we all know, these amazing plays are not free.  Like many of us who are on a budget, we would like to see as many plays as possible instead of just one. Here are 10 ways you can attend plays for much cheaper!

  1. Sign up to receive OSF’s ticket specials alerts.  These specials are not announced anywhere else and are only sent through the mail!
  2. Flex Pass $150 (5 tickets per Flex Pass–$30 per ticket!) from specially selected performances for the Flex Pass offer, seating is available in all sections except Box Seats. Must be purchased by March 16th for 2016 season. Call Box Office 800-219-8161.  Not available for purchase online.

  10. In 2016, all C section seats to all shows, all season are only $30, including summer shows. Search any performance for availability — these tickets do often sell out, so plan early if you can.
