In Oregon, summer is the season to enjoy the work of William Shakespeare, thanks to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, which presents several works from the Bard of Avon. This year, however, fans of the literary master have an option other than traveling to Ashland, which is most certainly worth the journey. Portland's Northwest Classical Theater company, an outfit that has been specializing in Shakespeare productions for more than a decade, brings A Midsummer Night's Dream to Drake Park. The performances are scheduled for just two nights, Aug. 26 and Aug. 27, with a matinee performance on Saturday afternoon, Aug. 27. Tickets range from $20 to $75 for the event that is being produced by the Source sister company Lay It Out, Inc. and Cat Call Productions, which put on the widely praised Cabaret and Little Shop of Horrors productions.

For the more ambitious theatergoers, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland is offering a pair of Shakespeare productions through the summer. Depending on the day, theatergoers can see the comedy, Love's Labor's Lost or the dark drama, Henry the IV pt. II.

Tickets can be found via the festival's website, and range from $20 to $80. The plays are presented in the intimate 1,100 seat Elizabethan Theater at the Allen Pavilion under Oregon evening skies.
