Mission Statement


The Portland Players is an organization dedicated to the development and fostering of an interest in dramatic arts, the creative expression of those arts and the encouragement and appreciation of community participation in all of the theater’s activities.

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 the simple truth:
Black Lives Matter.
