Experience the Magic of The Oregon Shakespeare Festival In Your Home

A music-filled ode to love!

Lift your spirits with A Midsummer Night’s Dream, streaming now on Shows on O! for just $15 for a 48-hour rental through July 22. This Shakespeare favorite, filled with laughs, music, and dance, was a huge hit with fans when it opened in the Bowmer Theatre. Director Joseph Haj brings out the heart in this hilarious show that’s a delight for the whole family.

The cast is filled with adored OSF actors—Royer Bockus, William Thomas Hodgson, Nubia Monks, and Jonathan Luke Stevens as the magically entangled lovers in the Athenian woods, Daniel T. Parker as Bottom, Lauren Modica and Al Espinosa as the fairy royal couple, Titania and Oberon, and many more.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream will only be streaming for two weeks—its run ends on July 22—so plan your date, rent the show for $15, and watch it any time within 48 hours after your purchase.

Viewing experience

This is the show in its entirety with the full cast of OSF actors, filmed on the Bowmer Theatre stage in front of a live audience earlier this year. Through most of the performance, the cameras are directly in front of the stage, so you’ll feel like you’re right in the theatre. A Midsummer Night’s Dream includes a charming 5-minute pre-show segment featuring some interaction with the audience, filmed at a considerable distance from the stage.

And don’t forget—The Copper Children is still streaming through July 15!

Read the latest review in New York Theater: “Zacarias’ script is so powerful – in the sympathy with which she paints the individual characters, and the obviously extensive research she conducted to put the events in context . . . The Copper Children provides stunning illumination of a moment largely lost to history, which offers some uncomfortable parallels to our own.”
