Oberlin Summer Theater Festival: Free Family Theater for Northeast Ohio!

Oberlin Summer Theater Festival serves audiences of all ages from throughout northeast Ohio through free, high-quality productions of meaningful plays. We believe that everyone in the community – regardless of age or socioeconomic background – should be able to attend live professional theater.

We’re launching our 2018 crowdfunding campaign, and through June 30, a generous OSTF supporter will match donations dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000!

Please help us meet this $10,000 challenge and help spread the word about OSTF to friends and family. If you’d like, you can also make a challenge gift of your own to encourage others to support free family theater in northeast Ohio through OSTF.

In 2018 OSTF will proudly present Little Women (opening June 22), Romeo and Juliet (opening July 6), and Picnic (opening July 20). For more information visit http://www.oberlinsummertheaterfestival.com/current-season, and we look forward to seeing you this summer!
