Original Practice Shakespeare Festival
July 5 - August 25
Hosted by First Folio, they will be performing Shakespearean plays where the cues an actor needs to perform his or her role without rehearsal. This allows the truest reaction to the story as it progresses. The performers use the same techniques as they did in Shakespeare's own time, which means limited rehearsal; an onstage prompter; fast pace, energetic acting; and lots of audience interaction. This lends a much more immediate, organic and improvisational feel to the performances. The Original Practic Shakespeare Festival will be held from July 5 - Aug. 25 at various parks within the Portland metro area. To learn more, visit www.opsfest.org.
