2016 OPsFest: Free Shakespeare Performances in Portland Parks | Schedule: Hamlet, Tempest & More!

Original Practice Shakespeare in the Park Fest 2013

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!

From press release:
2016 OPsFest
May – August, 2016
Free | All Ages | More info: ops fest.org

OPS Fest is dedicated to bringing a new style of Shakespearean performance to the Portland area by reviving the old.

First Folio editions of Shakespeare’s plays include all the cues an actor needs to perform his or her role without rehearsal. This allows the truest reaction to the story as it progresses. OPS Fest performs using the same 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. This lends a much more immediate, organic and improvisational feel to the performances.
