Ashland Promises “Mid-Summer Madness” for SPU Alumni and Friends

“Why this is very mid-summer madness.”
                      — Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night

EVERY YEAR, AN AUDIENCE of nearly 400,000 patrons streams into Ashland, Oregon, for the acclaimed Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF). Rated by Time magazine as one of the top five regional theatres in the country, OSF marks its 70th anniversary in 2005.

In the middle of it all will be a group of 35 individuals who have taken advantage of a special theatre package offered by the Alumni Office and The Society of Fellows at Seattle Pacific University. For $165 per person, theatregoers will receive reserved tickets to two plays, “Twelfth Night” on July 15 and “Richard III” on July 16, as well as breakfast and dinner on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday.

What could be better than “Twelfth Night” under the stars in the open-air Elizabethan Theatre? The following day, in the 600-seat Angus Bowmer Theatre, “Richard III” will reveal one of the most charismatic villains ever to command a stage.

Back by popular demand, Professor Emerita of English Fan Gates will lead group discussions of both plays. “It’s a wonderful way to re-connect with other alumni and friends while learning something at the same time,” says Kathy Hitchcock, associate director of alumni relations.

Special discounted group rates are available at Ashland’s Windmill Inn to those associated with Seattle Pacific. To register for the SPU Oregon Shakespeare Festival package, call 206/281-2586, or email Continuing education credit is available.
