This May, the Chetco Pelican Players are providing free group streaming access to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival's production of Snow in Midsummer. Tickets are available now; the show will be available for streaming May 3 through May 29.

The Chetco Pelican Players want to thank the community for their ongoing support during the COVID-19 pandemic by providing a free professional theater experience from the comfort of home. Tickets for live shows at OSF, a professional regional theater in Ashland, can range from $35 to more than $100 per ticket. This spring, you can engage with the artists at OSF – without having to travel, and at no cost to you!

Snow in Midsummer interweaves two stories — of a young woman who curses her city from beyond the grave, and of a wealthy businesswoman who must face the parched, locust-plagued city. This modern ghost story beautifully reimagines a classic myth and explores the legacy of trauma, the heart of injustice, and the lengths to which we go for love. 

A full show description, including audience age recommendations, is available at

The show can be viewed from any mobile device or SmartTV with an internet connection anytime during the streaming dates. To sign up for a streaming pass, visit the Chetco Pelican Players’ Donations & Memberships site at
