Support OSTF!

This campaign ended on July 01, 2017, but you can still make a gift to Oberlin College by clicking here!

The Oberlin Summer Theater Festival (OSTF) mission is to serve Lorain County and the larger northeastern Ohio community by presenting free productions of meaningful, high-quality theater classics. Those of us in OSTF believe that attending live, professional theater should be available to everyone in the community, regardless of age or socio-economic background.

We are able to continue to provide excellent, accessible theater for the community thanks in large part to the generosity of our donors. A generous supporter of OSTF has offered to match donations dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000 from June 16 through June 30, 2017. Please consider making a contribution so we can help reach our goal, which give us a strong start to our fundraising for this and future seasons!

For the 2017 season, OSTF will be proudly performing: 

The Miracle Worker (June 16–July 30)

 Barefoot in the Park (June 30–July 28) 

The Winter's Tale (July 14–July 29). 

We hope you can make it! See more at:
