2015 Laurelhurst Indiegogo Campaign
Our 2015 Laurelhurst Capital Campaign is up and running!
Each year, as the company has developed, we've added new titles to our summer touring calendar, and each year, we celebrate this with the Laurelhurst Festival, mounting each of the shows in our repertoire once, all in one place, one after another. We humbly request the support of the community to help us raise $3,000 - a substantial portion of our operating budget, symbolic of mounting the Laurelhurst Festival. As catchy as it sounds to ask you to "Pay an actor's salary!", our success in this season's campaign will determine our operating budget for next year's festival.
Check out our Indiegogo campaign page for more details. Your generosity is what keeps us able to bring free, quality, and a little bit dangerous classical theatre to the masses.
Fourth-Annual Laurelhurst Festival
Speaking of Laurelhurst, OPS is thrilled to be heading back to Laurelhurst Park for our fourth-annual Laurelhurst Festival, running from July 23rd-August 2nd!
With the addition of The Merry Wives of Windsor and Richard III, OPS will now be doing 12 performances of 11 different plays over the course of just 10 days. Check out the poster to the left (or our Tour Calendar) for the exact dates and times of each show.
Midsummer Midsommer 2015
Wow, what an incredible audience for Midsummer Midsommer 2015.
You showed up early to vote. You stayed late to cheer. And boy, were you generous when we passed the bucket. It is audiences like this that have kept us going these past seven years, both financially and emotionally.
Thanks to everyone who came out late on a Sunday to support our little Shakespearean troupe. And, even if you didn't, join us in the parks this summer and check us out! As many of you know, we are adding The Merry Wives of Windsor and Richard III to our catalogue, bringing us up to a total of 11 plays we will be performing between now and the end of August. Check out our Tour Calendar for the dates of these shows and all the others, and join us to find out why we think Shakespeare should be a little dangerous!
Thanks to everyone who applied for our
2015 Apprentice Program. See you next year!
