In case you don't know, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival is in southern Oregon, in the beautiful town of Ashland. Go for the theater, the community, the scenery, the fresh outdoors. It's a great place to visit and OSF puts on excellent plays with very talented interpreters and skilled sign coaches.
Another great fact about interpreted performances at OSF is that they have three or four interpreted performances of different plays in one weekend. What a great opportunity to take a long weekend trip and soak in accessible theater.
In addition to interpreted performances, OSF also provides open captions of some plays as well; click on this accessibility link for more information.
You also may not know that Deaf actor, Howie Seago, works at OSF. This season he is performing in both Robin Hood and Cymbeline. And if you look at the interpreted performance list below, you will notice that the weekend of July 12 - 14, both of those plays are being interpreted. Make it a date to watch Howie perform and see all three plays interpreted. Fun!
Here are the interpreted dates for 2013:
