  • The Oregon Shakespeare Festival begins a new season of free, family-friendly, multicultural Green Show performances Tuesday, June 3, in the Allen Elizabethan Theatre courtyard on the OSF campus, 15 S. Pioneer St., Ashland.
    The outdoor stage will hum with regional, national and international musicians, dancers, storytellers and more at 6:45 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays through Oct. 12.
    "Our show is a gift from OSF to our community and from our community to OSF. It's a rich, fun exchange we are all lucky to participate in," says Green Show curator Claudia Alick. "Our process starts with listening to our collaborators — the artists working on our plays, administrators and production staff who support us, and the local neighbors we work alongside. That's how we choose the best acts that resonate with who we are and what we are doing."
    A few highlights include:
    • An OSF partnership with Friends of the Animal Shelter for "Do More with Your Dog!" to be presented on the opening night of "The Two Gentlemen of Verona."
    • A presentation of the Ashland Conservation Commission's Conservationist of the Year award, with eco-entertainer and illusionist Steve Trash.
    • Connecting with Britt Festivals to showcase some of its performers, including classical jazz artists Project Trio, Time for Three and instructors from Britt's ukulele camp.
    • Justin Ellington — music designer for "The Comedy of Errors" — and David Molina — music designer for "The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window" — will create a Green Show performance.
    • Actor G. Valmont Thomas and musicians from OSF's 2012 production of "The White Snake" will make an appearance.
    • Performances by female performers, including improvisation troupe Chickspeare, rock band Blue Lightning and dancers from Full Circle Productions, will celebrate OSF's all-female production of "The Two Gentlement of Verona."
