Oregon Shakespeare Festival to raise curtain for live shows after year-long hiatus

The Oregon Shakespeare Festival will resume its first in-person production since closing in March 2020. On July 1, OSF will open the musical, “Fannie,” which recounts the life of civil rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer. It will be performed in the outdoor Allen Elizabethan Theatre. Artistic director Nataki Garrett tells us more about the musical and about what theater-goers can expect this summer.
