Celebrating Shakespeare, Old School/Old Church
A highlight of the entertainment season in Southern Oregon is the opening of the Elizabethan Theatre at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. It is the heart of the original festival, with plays presented under the summer sky taking stage since 1935.
The opening is celebrated with an outdoor meal, but also with a church service. Church? Yes, 1559 style.
Trinity Episcopal Church offers a service that attempts to recreate a Church of England service from the time of Elizabeth I. Triney rector the Rev. Tony Hutchinson and Geoff Ridden, Shakespeare lovers and experts, join us to explain.
