Event Details

About the 2021 Season:
OPS Fest is proud to bring admission-free Shakespeare back to the Portland Public Parks this year! Henry IV, Part 2 and Measure for Measure are the new plays on the roster. The season ends on the last weekend in August with the Gentlemen’s Show (all fellas!) of Romeo & Juliet, GentleThem’s Show (non binary & trans actors!) of Comedie of Errors, and the extremely popular Gentlewomen’s Show (sisters are doing it for themselves!) of Loves Labours Lost.

About Original Practice Shakespeare Festival:
OPSFest brings no-cost Shakespeare to parks all over the Portland Metro area. The company uses the original practice techniques of Elizabethan England: limited rehearsal, scrolls in hand, audience interaction, and an onstage prompter. Gender fluid casting is our jam!
