Tue, 03/23/2010

Dmae Roberts presents "Oregon Treasures" - the first in a new series of features about veteran artists and arts organizations. The inaugural piece features the 75th anniversary of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland.  

One of the largest regional theatres in the country is located in a town of more than 21,000 people. With a budget of about $27 million dollars a year, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival is the only theatre in the country that performs two different plays a day on three different stages 10 months of the year.  While nonprofit theatres struggle financially, OSF finished the 2009 season in the black largely due to the loyalty of its audience and quality of its work. This year OSF celebrates its 75th anniversary.  Independent Producer Dmae Roberts went to the opening in Ashland, Oregon and produced this piece for Stage and Studio.

*The "Oregon Treasures" series is funded by the Regional Arts and Culture Council.
