Oxford Shakespeare

About

We bring you Shakespeare’s most musical of comedies As You Like It; a tale of Toffs in the woods, apparently on holiday!

A story of the battles of love, language, justice and court v country, this is one of Shakespeare’s most loved comedies, with many a familiar phrase for audiences of all ages and nationalities to enjoy.

The OSC are celebrated for their open air, site specific performances both at their summer residency at Wadham College Oxford and across the Historic Royal Palaces sites of Hampton Court, Kensington Palace, Tower of London and the Banqueting House Whitehall.

Our shows are designed to be interactive with the environment in which they are performed, allowing the audience to enter fully into the world of the play. They are renowned for their talented actors, sensational costumes and for the quality of the live music which is individually devised for each production. This year composer Nick Lloyd Webber returns to work alongside rising star director Michael Oakley.

This year we are delighted to be performing a spectacle of songs from OSC shows at Art in Action at Waterperry Gardens and the Wilderness Festival at Cornbury Park.
