Attending Performances

  • Is it really free?
    Yes. There is no cost to see the show, but donations are gratefully accepted.
  • Do I need to reserve a ticket?
    No you don't. All shows are general admission. Come earlier for a better location. 
  • What should I bring to the performance?
    A picnic. Sun-screen. Warm clothes and blankets or low chairs. A flash light. Children. 
  • I hear there will be wine at the event*. Can I bring my own bottle?
    Sadly, no. The vendors are providing event licenses. The Oregon Liquor Control Board does not permit individuals to bring their own alcohol to public events. You can bring your own picnic however.
  • What kind of chair can I bring to the show?
    Any kind of lawn chair you want. Do know, however, that we reserve the front two sections for blankets and low-backed lawn chairs, respectively. Full-size lawn chairs will be in the section behind the low-backed chairs.


  • How do I find out about auditions and volunteer opportunities?
    Please sign up for our mailing list and check the boxes indicating interest in volunteer and audition opportunities.
  • If I donate to Willamette Shakespeare, can I use it as a tax write-off?
    Yes! Willamette Shakespeare is an Oregon non-profit and registered federally tax-exempt charity. Further, if you match your to Willamette Shakespeare contribution with another to the Oregon Cultural Trust, you can get a tax credit for that second contribution.
