PUC Visits the Shakespeare Festival in Ashland
by Heather Lackey
The spirit of the Globe Theatre will live on in Ashland, Oregon, this summer during the town's annual Oregon Shakespeare Festival. This year's festival will feature the plays Hamlet, Twelfth Night, Henry V, and The Taming of the Shrew. For those who love William Shakespeare, Pacific Union College offers a unique opportunity to visit the Festival and receive college credit for the tour.
Those joining PUC's Ashland tour will not only attend the plays, but will also enjoy a backstage tour of an Elizabethan theatre, meet with an actor, visit the Oregon Shakespeare Festival Exhibition Center, participate in helpful seminars on the featured plays, and share a farewell dinner.
The tour will take place July 24 through 28. Those taking the tour will supply their own transportation to Ashland and will make their own arrangements for food and lodging. The tour can be taken for either 2 or 3 units of college credit. The cost is $225 plus the price of tuition (at $209 per credit hour). A non-credit tour is also available for $275 .
