Ashland, Ore — The bricks at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland are getting a multi-million dollar facelift and festival staff say it’s about time.
Over the next year and a half the courtyard which plays host to the popular ‘green shows’ will be renovated to better accommodate people with disabilities as well as provide much more seating for visitors.
Festival leaders say it’s a change that’s been needed for a long time.
“We hope it really enhances the experience of our patrons and the Ashland community, we like to think of the bricks as Ashland’s living room and we think it’s going to be a lot more comfortable, safer and nicer to be in,” said General Manager Ted Delong.
The project will cost 4.2 million dollars and OSF expects it to be completed by June of 2017.
