Founded in 1935, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF) is one of the nation’s oldest professional non-profit theaters, as well as one of its largest. Each year, it performs a robust repertoire of plays by Shakespeare and others for hundreds of thousands of attendees. Since its founding, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival has maintained an archive that houses a comprehensive collection of audio and visual materials relating to its theatrical performances. The collection includes recordings of 541 of the festival’s 570 theatrical productions between 1950 and 2012; theatrical adaptations created for NBC radio; artist interviews; lectures; music; and advertisements.
