Ashland, Oregon Shakespeare Festival, July 5 - 11, 2016---
Along with their teacher and his wife plus a father of one of the students, my better half Mr. Twister and I chaperoned 36 bright, public and private elementary school 11-year-olds who are Shakespearean scholars. It would be unethical to depict the kids any closer up, so prepare for a panoply of uncharacteristic personal shots. Bonanza: along with beautiful countryside and a break from our desiccated SoCal drought landscape, we saw Twelfth Night, The Winter's Tale, Hamlet, Richard II,  
plus Great Expectations, and had a blast!
Ashland's weather ranged from drizzly (in July!) to warm in the 90sF.
