Letter: United our theaters stand

September 25, 2023

Rarely have I been as happy to read an email as the one that came from Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Not only did the promo promote the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, but it also promoted the Rogue Theater Company, the Camelot Theatre, Oregon Cabaret Theatre and the Collaborative Theatre Project, even with links to buy tickets at all of them!

Ashland theater is back!

Hold onto your hats, all ye hostelers,  chefs, shopkeepers and everyone who loves this dear little city — the leadership in our theatrical world, led, I suspect, by OSF, is throwing open its hospitality doors for everyone who enjoys any measure of theater. This is much ado about something indeed.

Kudos to all who are making this happen.
