There is a large number of bird species, several hippos, crocodiles, antelopes and giant tortoise. By Fatema Jagani The largest animal sanctuary in Mombasa, Bamburi Nature Trail a large variety of animals. A walk around the trail is the ideal way to look at the Shakespeare:  Shakespeare One of the big attractions in our town is the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Shakespeare is one of the 100 Best Companies to work for in Oregon (as selected by Oregon Business magazine). Shakespeare:  Shakespeare Shakespeare has a Green Show every single year. In years past there has been a trick show and a dance show. But it really depends on what shows are available. The Oregon Shakespeare Festival is known worldwide for the quality of its shows. In its 61st year, the Tony Award-winning OSF produces Shakespeare, classic and modern plays in a season that runs from mid-February through October. Ashland has an active and varied theatrical community. Home to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Ashland is also the home of nine other theater groups, which perform a wide variety of productions, including musicals, comedies, and experimental theater, all year long. One amazing feature of the Shakespeare festival is the Elizabethan Theater. It is North America’s first outdoor theater. One classic Shakespeare play featured this year is As You Like It. Shakespeare:  Shakespeare When I have been in the green show audience I have seen amazing shows. So if you come to Ashland, Oregon and a Shakespeare play is playing you should come and see it. The green shows are probably the best. The green show is free. It is about the time of dinner-time so you are allowed to just bring your food and set on the grass or bring your blanket. Shakespeare:  Shakespeare I have seen Anne Frank and it was one of the best plays I have ever seen. My class went there and we loved it. Even some of us cried. The actors were great and so was everything else. It is great that we have this Theater and I hope you come so we could share it with you. Thanks!
