Bottom Line for Portland
Portland Playhouse engages 12,000 audience members via four productions with the help of 75 theater professionals and 175 volunteers. In 2017-2018, 24 artists worked in 12 schools to reach more than 2,400 students. Portland Playhouse offers its space to numerous community partners for events in the King neighborhood.
“Portland Playhouse’s mission resonates deeply with me. You come as you are and perhaps your experience in here will change you in some kind of way. There’s this outreach that I love. I see it in their work, in the audiences they bring in, and in their staff. It’s amazing."
