Tyrone WilsonJoin us for one of our inspiring and fun educational programs—we’d love to share the beautiful Rogue Valley with you! I’ve been involved in theatre programs since 1995—originally with Elderhostel, which became Road Scholar, and, beginning in 2010 with Siskiyou Center. A number of you know me from my work as a theatre instructor for these programs. For many years, however, I have also been working with Siskiyou Center and Road Scholar, helping to locate instructors; advising on play selection and course content; and, of course, assisting with the technical side of things! I have been an actor and teacher with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival since 1994. My personal and professional relationship with OSF will continue to provide our program participants with unique behind-the-scenes access to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. I am excited about this venture and looking forward to providing you with a memorable theatre experience.
