Abstract:
Angus Bowmer founded the Ashland Oregon Shakespeare Festival in 1935. It is the oldest Shakespearean theatre organization in the Western Hemisphere. The thesis examines the artistic and popular success as well as the problems and opportunities associated with the 60-year-old company. The structure of this investigation begins with a look at the setting of the Festival; next a study of Angus Bowmer, the creator of the OSF; then moves to an analysis of three different productions. Finally, the thesis looks at the Long Range Plan 1988-1992. The Plan, intended as an internal document, serves to give direction to the Festival in future years. The reader may gain two things from the thesis. Initially, the study provides an accessible sourcebook documenting the history from which the OSF evolved. Secondly, this investigation provides a necessary link to a major movement in American theatre and its significance in history. The regional repertory theatre known as the Ashland Oregon Shakespeare Festival is a case in point.
