Life’s dance, one step at a time

Our new Ashland home is taking shape. The kitchen cabinets went from boxes to walls quickly. The countertops will take at least two weeks.

Meanwhile, the dining room serves as a flooring storage area and makeshift kitchen.

It has been microwave gourmet, but Sue remembered today that a camping stove arrived with our stuff from Mariposa last weekend. That and a new grill will help make meals a bit more interesting for the next month or so until the kitchen and flooring are completed.

Tonight, it was time to get away from the mess and take a picnic a few steps to downtown for another Oregon Shakespeare Festival Green Show. L.A.’s Versa-Style Dance Company wowed a lively audience with an energetic hip-hop performance.

Chocolate truffle ice cream was a perfect encore!

Bring a blanket, grab a seat; It’s the Green Show

Project Trio from Brooklyn, N.Y. was a hit at a recent Green Show.

The Green Show audience gathers in a grass amphitheater in the Shakespeare Festival complex.

The arts enrich Ashland in so many ways and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival plays a huge part. Eleven plays, including three from Shakespeare, are part of a 10-month program from February through November. Last year, about 110,000 people bought nearly 410,000 tickets for shows at the three theaters. The festival was a nearly $90 million boost to the local economy.

But one of the best parts is free: the Green Show, performed six evenings a week at the Shakespeare complex.

St. Cinder did their own green show downtown, attracting a crowd and plenty of cash during an entertaining performance.

This classic VW van and smaller twin are quintessential Ashland.
