This Week at Portland Center Stage

october 19 —  october 26, 2014


Dreamgirls — Winner of six Tony Awards, this groundbreaking musical, loosely based on the career of The Supremes, takes you to a revolutionary time in American music history where three friends form The Dreamettes and learn hard lessons about love, trust and the changing tastes of the American public.
September 20 — November 2 on the U.S. Bank Main Stage.

The Typographer's Dream — This play follows the story of a stenographer, a geographer and a typographer. During a presentation, it becomes hilariously clear that their personal issues just so happen to correspond with their jobs. “Funny, provocative, psychologically revealing, intellectually stimulating and thoroughly enjoyable.” —San Francisco Chronicle.
October 4 — November 16 in the Ellyn Bye Studio

Hi Joe,

Thank you so much for your interest in the Gerding Theater at the Armory! Portland Center Stage, the theater company that exclusively performs at the Armory, produces ten productions each season. Many of these productions are musicals or have musical aspects to them (for example, our current production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream features 488 sound cues and original music specifically created for the production).

Throughout the year, the Armory is sometimes rented out to other companies for conferences, recitals, ceremonies and musical performances.

We also often feature live music in our Armory cafe or in the lobby that is free and open to the public. For example, we often feature children’s choirs in the lobby, before PCS performances, throughout the holiday season. And this weekend we will be featuring six different musicians and bands at our 25th Anniversary Open House. More information about that event can be found here: http://www.pcs.org/blog/item/open-house/

Again, thanks for your interest! We hope to see you here soon.

Do you folks ever do live music at any of the Armory venues?  It says so here:

And i think you’d be doing a service to yourselves and the community.

Thank you!
