The Bard in Bend: Shakespeare at Winterfest

Winter and summer, Billy Shakespeare lives on in Central Oregon.

Posted By on Fri, Feb 3, 2012 at 5:15 AM

Winterfest is fast approaching and this year the five day event includes a one-man show on Wednesday entitled, "Shakespeare on the Rocks: Good Will."

Grant Turner, the star of the show, is the artistic director of the Northwest Classical Theatre Company and will present an intimate look at the bard's life from his birth in 1564 to his death in 1616—a pretty cool way to learn from an expert what we all should have learned in eighth grade. The Oregonian gave Turner's show a very favorable review back in September.

And if experiencing the works of great playwrights is your thing, note that tickets for Bend's  Shakespeare in the Park went on sale today. Running from Aug. 23-Aug. 25 these tickets will go quickly ($20-$75 at bendticket.com). This year's performance is Romeo and Juliet.
