To close out the season, OPS Fest continues the tradition of an All Gender/Identifying weekend, this year at Mt. Tabor. An all male-identifying/non-binary “Merry Wives of Windsor” will be performed on Aug 23rd and an all female-identifying/non-binary “Hamlet” on Aug 24th.
Mix together one dead father (now a ghost), a mother that quickly marries your murderous uncle, a complicated love life, two sycophantic childhood chums, a company of actors, a duel, poison, murder, madness, and the skull of a dead clown. Add pirates. Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.
OPS Fest brings no-cost repertory Shakespeare to parks and venues 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. All shows are absolutely FREE to the public! Families and pets are welcome.
