2016 Laurelhurst Festival - July 14 - 24
Each year, as the company has developed, we've added new titles to our summer touring calendar, and we perform them all over 10 days. It's the peak of our season and it takes place in beautiful and beloved Laurelhurst Park in SE Portland.
What You Can Do:
Our shows are always free, so we depend on audience donations to cover costs, plus grants and the support of schools and a few private theatre patrons.
We humbly request the support of those in our community with the means to help us raise $2,500 - a substantial portion of our operating budget, symbolic of mounting the Laurelhurst Festival.

$85 - Your Own Interruption: a show interruption dedicated entirely to YOU.
$150 - Train to learn one of OPSFest's Fights, Songs or Dances

$650 - Shakespeare-esque Photo Shoot with KKelly Photography
In Shakespeare's Era, the audience arrived knowing the actors had not rehearsed and that the only context they each had of the play was their own role. The play was as fresh to the actors onstage as the audience watching. In a company of 43, it is rare you will see the same actor play the same role twice and you'll NEVER see the same cast. Discover and explore these timeless classics along with us us and find out what makes Shakespeare a little dangerous!
Original Practice Shakespeare is committed to providing free Shakespeare all over the Portland metro area each summer. To do this, we rely on our generous donors. Your support keeps OPS free and accessible to the community.
Amazon Smile understands that not everyone who wants to give is able to give. That's why they allow their shoppers to take advantage of this FREE donation service.
