UPDATE 10/14/20:

We are sad to announce that we have decided to cancel the 2021 Young Actors Workshop program due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will miss all of our young actors terribly and we look forward to the time when it will be safe to gather and create art together again!

UPDATE 9/15/20:

The Portland Players Board of Trustees has made the difficult decision to cancel our January 2021 production of Twelve Angry Jurors. We will continue to monitor the situation and will update on the status of the rest of our 2020-2021 Season, including the Young Actors Workshop, as information becomes available.


Dear Friends,


As President of The Portland Players Board of Trustees, I am writing to you today with my heart truly on my sleeve.


Under normal circumstances, rehearsals would be well underway for the first show of our season. The theater would be coming alive and buzzing with activity. We would be making plans for our 90th (yes, 90th!) anniversary celebration. Unfortunately, we are living in times that are anything but normal. READ MORE

The Portland Players stands with the people of color in our community in condemning acts of racism, hate, and prejudice. 


We strive to be a place of safety and love for all of our community members and we pledge to examine our current practices to see how we can better serve and support our entire community. 


We know there is a lot of work to be done,

but it starts with a simple truth: 


Black Lives Matter.
