Ore. Shakespeare Fest actors at WWU


COLLEGE PLACE -- Actors from the Oregon Shakespeare Festival School Visit program will perform at 7 p.m. Monday in Village Hall on the Walla Walla University campus, 204 S. College Ave.

Jonathan Dyrud and Jason Sanford will perform selections from classic and contemporary works by Shakespeare, the British comedy group Monty Python and others.

Dyrud, who has a bachelor of fine arts degree from Southern Oregon University, has spent four seasons with the OSF. This is his second year participating in the School Visit Program.

In his first year with the program, Sanford received his bachelor's degree from Santa Clara University and his master of fine arts degree from University of Washington. He has won the Charles Lampkin Award for Acting.

Founded in 1935, the Tony Award-winning Oregon Shakespeare Festival is one of the oldest professional, non-profit theaters in the U.S.

The Festival seeks to "reveal our collective humanity through illuminating interpretations of new and classic plays, deepened by the kaleidoscope of rotating repertory."

The event is free. OSF visit is open to the community and is free to attend. For more information about the visit at WWU, call the English Department at 509-527-2862 or email pamela.rodman@wallawalla.edu.
