Set during a time when the country is divided by conflicting ideologies and convictions following a contentious presidential election, Vogel's sweeping, music-rich story plays out one frigid Christmas Eve on the banks of the Potomac River. Amid the hubbub of holiday preparations, an array of abolitionists and assassins, slaves and freemen, Union and Confederate soldiers, along with President Lincoln and Mary Todd, all pursue their paths to liberation. Propelled by traditional American songs, marches and spirituals — all revitalized for this production by luminary Portland musicians — A Civil War Christmas is a lively reminder for people of all beliefs about humanity's potential for compassion, reconciliation and hope.
A gypsy prophecy pulls melancholy sandwich-maker Harold and two bewitching sisters through a star-crossed journey of love and connection.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Stephen Sondheim's uproarious tribute to ancient Roman theatre and classic vaudeville, follows crafty slave Pseudolus as he seeks to win his freedom by helping his hapless master, Hero, woo the courtesan next door – who has, unfortunately, been promised to another suitor. Hysteria ensues (quite literally)!
A five-time Tony Award winner (including Best Musical and Best Book) filled with mistaken identities, clever wordplay, and slamming doors, Broadway's favorite musical farce has stood the test of time, combining fast-paced, irreverent humor with witty, upbeat music to joyously deliver "something for everyone, a comedy tonight!"
Based on the Gospel according to Matthew, Godspell is a groundbreaking and unique reflection on the life of Jesus, with a message of kindness, tolerance and love.

Based on the 1994 Disney animated film, The Lion King continues to reign as one of the most popular shows on Broadway and around the world.

Based on Shakespeare's greatest love story, West Side Story places ill-fated lovers Tony and Maria amidst racial tensions and rival street gangs in 1950s New York City. Their struggle to escape hate, violence, and prejudice to find a place together remains a heart wrenching and relevant story for our time. With its brilliant, passionate score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim and pioneering choreography by Jerome Robbins, West Side Story has earned its place as one of the most powerful and revered musicals in history.
Dorothy, the Scarecrow, a witch named Evillene and that charismatic huckster the Wiz will light up the stage in this uproarious, song-filled adaptation of The Wizard of Oz, told through the lens of the African-American experience.

OSF is thrilled to bring this cultural touchstone of the 1970s to our outdoor Allen Elizabethan Theatre.
How do you save a good man who's wrongly accused and facing the ax in 24 hours?

The Yeomen of the Guard is an immersive 80-minute performance.
