2019 OPsFest: Free Outdoor Shakespeare Performances in Portland Parks

June 29
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Portland, OR United States

Original Practice Shakespeare Fest is dedicated to bringing a new style of Shakespearean performance to Portland, and the surrounding area, by reviving the old. Their actors perform using the same performance techniques as they did in Shakespeare’s own time, which means limited rehearsal; an onstage prompter; fast-paced, energetic acting; and lots of audience interaction!
