OPS Fest is proud to bring admission-free Shakespeare back to the Portland Public Parks this year. The OPS Fest company of skilled, flexible actors will perform with occasional interruptions of songs, dances, and sketches throughout. Shows begin at 7pm and the audience is welcome to arrive during the hour before to watch the pregame dance & fight rehearsals. Children, picnics and leashed pups are always welcome.
