Program #19884RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy (Variable by Program Date)
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Get insider-access to company members straight off the stages of the Tony Award-winning Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Throughout the week, actors and theatre experts put the plays into context with lectures and field trips. Experience the fine art and craft of this nationally-renowned theatre company running eleven plays in repertory on three stages. Each year over the nine-month season the company provides a selection of Shakespeare's works, national and international classics, and world premieres. Come experience a week of cutting-edge theatre in charming Ashland!


• Attend three enticing Oregon Shakespeare Festival performances. Meet members of the company in special sessions and learn about the life of an actor.
• Stroll through the theatres while a company member guides you through OSF history and the complexities of one of the country's largest rotating repertory theatres.
• Discuss each play with an actor from the company, who will prepare you for each production and bring in special guest artists from the shows.
