The Georgia Shakespeare Festival, the professional theatre in residence at Oglethorpe University, is a nationally recognized LORT D Theatre (League of Regional Theatres). Dedicated to the production of the works of William Shakespeare and other enduring authors, GSF annually mounts a full summer repertory season, as well as a fall production. With a 17-year history and one of the largest audience bases of any theatre in the southeast, the Georgia Shakespeare Festival enjoys a national notoriety that is both commercial and critical.

The OU Theatre is Oglethorpe's collegiate repertory company. Mounting a full season of 5 productions per year, the OU Theater is led by theatre faculty and made up of student actors, designers, and technicians. The two companies' interaction results in a dynamic environment that brings students into constant contact with seasoned professionals, and even allows for cross-pollination as OU students find opportunities to participate directly with GSF.
