  • "Annette Lewis has taught theater and directed high school plays in three different states, including Arizona, before retiring to Ashland 10 years ago.
    Retiring is not really the right word. Since she has been here, she has written and acted with Tombstone Tales, the summer living history tours presented by the Ashland Historic Railroad Museum that start at the Ashland Cemetery on East Main Street.
    She also teaches at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute in Ashland. Over the years, she has offered her students insights into various plays from the current Oregon Shakespeare Festival season. Her classes are in such demand that they were moved from the OLLI Campus at 655 Frances Lane into larger venues at Southern Oregon University.
    As a teacher, she sees her success measured in two ways: "Every play I directed for 20 years and every successful student who is a happy, contributing adult."
    What's your favorite aspect about Ashland: Culture, climate, community. The order is interchangeable. I searched the world for the best place to live and correctly chose Ashland.
