ASHLAND, ORE. — A first-time visitor to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival might be struck by any number of things. The festival’s idyllic location in this small city surrounded by vistas of rolling hills. Or the splendid Tudor-style outdoor Elizabethan theater, just one of the three spaces where performances take place six days a week for more than seven months, for an impressive total of roughly 800 shows.

But even before visiting the festival, you might notice something unusual when you scan the website: It’s the rare theater site that you can navigate if your only language is Spanish.
