To inspire our community by bringing stories to life in unexpected ways. We strive to present diverse stories, invest in new works, engage young people, and give each person who enters our theater a sense of welcome and belonging.
Bottom Line for Portland
Portland Center Stage at The Armory presents more than 400 performances of 11 plays each season, plus the free JAW: A Playwrights Festival and more than 200 education and community programs. The Armory serves more than 160,000 people annually, including 8,000 youth from more than 70 schools.
“[The Armory] has a way of simultaneously exciting the cerebral, aesthetic and emotional. Now that I am a school administrator, I cannot let go of you; I still help student groups attend. I want to thank you for 25 years of innovation, inspiration and engagement.”
—Laurie Kash, Rainier School District
