Addressing Environmental Topics in Theatre by Using Greenturgy
"The brilliant thing about greenturgy is that you don’t have to be doing plays explicitly about environmental concerns to practice it. In fact, once you begin looking for a way to connect to the environment through the work, you can’t stop seeing environmental issues in everything." #Greenturgy #AmRevOSF

"My personal & professional journeys have allowed me to see hair through many different lenses. These lenses have been particularly helpful with enhancing our Hair & Wig Department at OSF. For the past few seasons I’ve worked with our Artistic Department, Costume Designers & the Wig Department to meet the creative needs of our culturally diverse acting company. My goal is for our hair & wig designs to authentically & accurately represent our casts." -Cherelle Guyton #RepresentationMatters Stage Directions, Wig Design, Front Of House, Hair Wig, Wig Hairstyles, Theater, Acting, Improve Yourself

Magic Can Be Normal | Hazlitt
"I’m still glad that, from now on, when my daughter thinks of #Shakespeare, she’ll be able to imagine Asian American players... As my bibliophile daughters grow up, as they go on their own pagebound adventures, I want them to believe that these works of art and imagination belong to them as much as anyone else. I want them to be able to envision stage after stage, world after world of people they, too, can become." #WintersTaleOSF #RepresentationMatters

How an Oregon Theater Got the Attention of the Tonys, the Pulitzers and Broadway
"They've commissioned a cross-section of playwrights who touch every single region of the country and who are wonderfully diverse across gender and ethnic lines, and I think that the fact that they’re so inclusive is being rewarded because the work feels fresh and immediate and in conversation with our time.” -#SweatOSF playwright Lynn Nottage #AmRevOSF #AmericanRevolutions

Anthony Heald in GYPSY: Journeyman actor makes his way to Philadelphia - phindie
Antony Heald on OSF: "Bill Rauch took over [as artistic director] and completely blew the roof off whatever expectations for what that theater could be. The fact that [Lynn Nottage’s] Sweat—which the theater commissioned—just won the Pulitzer and is up for a Tony, and a few years ago there was so much success for [Robert Schenkkan’s] All the Way, shows all the great work that’s coming out of Ashland. It’s just an ideal place to work."

Throwing it back to 1972's #HenryIVpt2OSF in honor of Powers Boothe, who passed away recently. He's seen here with 38-season actor and director James Edmondson. Powers was in the OSF acting company for two years, and Prince Hal was among his first roles here. Rest in peace, Powers. Other 1972-1973 roles included King Henry in #HenryVOSF, Dumaine in #LovesLaborsLostOSF and Cassio in #OthelloOSF (all three of which, coincidentally, will be produced in #OSF2018), among others. #tbt #OSFArchives
