Oregon Shakespeare Festival opens temporary ‘Bowmer in the Park’ July 7

Oregon Shakespeare Festival will open its temporary venue, Bowmer in the Park, on July 7, while the Angus Bowmer Theatre undergoes repairs. Four plays will be performed in a tent in Ashland's Lithia Park: "August: Osage County," "Measure for Measure," "The Imaginary Invalid" and "The African Company Presents Richard III."

The Oregon Shakespeare Festival will open its temporary venue, “Bowmer in the Park,” on July 7 with “August: Osage County” at 1:30 p.m. and “Measure for Measure” at 8:30 p.m. Tickets will go on sale July 6 by phone, in person at the box office and online.

Four plays will be performed in a 598-seat tent in Ashland’s Lithia Park while the Angus Bowmer Theatre undergoes repairs. The other plays are “The Imaginary Invalid” and “The African Company Presents Richard III” (previews begin July 20). A crack in a main support beam led to closure of the 600-seat  theater on June 18. 

People who already have tickets for Angus Bowmer Theatre performances July 7-10 must return them to the festival box office beginning July 6 to receive new ones for “Bowmer in the Park.” The box office will contact people who have tickets for shows after July 10 with further instructions.

Other notes about “Bowmer in the Park” performances:

Seating is reserved and tickets will be sold at regular festival prices.

The seating configuration in the tent doesn’t match that in the Angus Bowmer Theatre. Efforts are being made to reseat ticket holders as close to their original seats as possible for performances through July 10.

The tent, situated near the Elizabethan Theatre, is air-conditioned and patrons are advised to bring seat cushions.

There will be concession service but because the tent is in a public park, no alcohol will be served. See the festival website for parking suggestions.
