I am a professional actor, director, playwright and want to encourage all those interested to check out the theatre scene in Portland. There are so many great things happening here. I am seeing Long Days Journey into Night and Oh the Humanity this weekend. There is something to see almost every night of the week if you are interested. Check it out!!

Hi Tom,
Portland is home to a thriving theatre community. It supported me for 13 years until I quit to pursue another profession. Here's a list of several from larger to smaller: Portland Center Stage, Artists' Repertory Theatre, and Third Rail Productions, CoHo, Profile, Milagro, Imago, Stumptown, Staged!pdx, Playwrights' West and many more smaller companies and independent productions. We also have the Fertile Ground Festival, which showcases readings and productions by Portland area playwrights.
There is also a Broadway touring series presented (but not produced) by Portland Opera, a Level 3 Opera house which boasts a number of world-premier productions. White Bird, BodyVox, Oregon Ballet Theater are some of the dance options for larger ticket performances. Tears of Joy produces puppet-theater. Oregon Children's Theater not only produces large-scale productions for children, but hosts a summer theater camp for kids with venues throughout the city. Northwest Childrens' Theatre also produces for kids...We gots theater!

Hope that answers your question!

Anybody care to comment on the state of the theatrical arts in PDX? I hear all sorts of news about art galleries, but not much about theater. What kind of theater scene does PDX sport these days?

Go see my company June 27th and 28th at PSU Lincoln Hall.

Don't forget to check out the Events calendar because big things are happening in May. White Bird ballet company is celebrating its tenth anniversary in a big way, and Portland Opera's got "Aida" coming down the pike!

Just saw "Sometimes a Great Notion" last night at The Armory, and I have to say it's one of the greats! Explosive material, layered, fabulous cast, one helluva set, and of course the great venue all combine to make this a must see theatre event! This the world premiere of Ken Kesey's, yes, the guy who wrote "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," play, and it's done so well here that they've extended the run thirteen extra days. It ends May 10th, so run!!
