ASHLAND, Ore. – One of the largest tourist draws in Southern Oregon is lifting some COVID-19 restrictions.
On Friday, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival announced it will welcome back full-capacity audiences to the outdoor Allen Elizabethan Theatre starting July 14. Social distancing and mask requirements will be removed as long as attendees can prove they’re fully vaccinated or can produce proof of a negative COVID-19 test. The change allows OSF to sell 900 more tickets to every performance.
“The audience members singing along, clapping along and for that to happen with nearly 1200 people in the house or even 600 people as compared to 200 people is a pretty significant step forward in the experience,” said David Schmitz, OSF Executive Director.
