Reminder: "A Midsummer Night's Dream" at PCS

* next week *

Portland Center Stage presents an interpreted performance of

Shakespeare's 
"A Midsummer Night's Dream" 

DATE: Thursday, December 6th   (*2* interpreted shows)

TIME:  * NOON and  7:30 pm
             *Deaf Theater Chat begins at 6:30 pm

PLACE: Gerding Theater at The Armory
               Main Stage
               128 NW Eleventh Avenue

                  or call the box office  503-445-3700

INTERPRETERS: Edwin Cancel, Pam Cancel,  KT Corlett, Krista Harmon
synopsis: As the royals Theseus and Hippolyta prepare to marry, four young lovers from their Athenian kingdom flee to the forest in the wake of parental disapproval. But in the woodland, these lovers’ lives are complicated upon crossing paths with feuding faerie royalty. As Oberon and Titania bicker over a changeling child, the mischievous Puck and his sprightly accomplices use herbal spells to hilariously complicate the love-mad quartet’s forest idyll.
When a group of local rustics rehearsing a play for the Athens wedding also seek the quiet of the forest, the spells and confusions wrought seem unlikely to ever sort themselves out. But this is William Shakespeare at his most magical and most imaginative, and with a little enchantment, as Puck says “all is mended.”

PCS: "Santaland Diaries" interpreted performance

In December, Portland Center Stage will also be having an interpreted performance of their traditional Christmas offering

"Santaland Diaries"
by David Sedaris

Darius Pearce as Crumpet the Elf at PCS

DATE: Thursday, December 13th

TIME:  7:30 pm; Deaf Theater Chat begins at 6:30 pm

PLACE: Gerding Theater at The Armory

               128 NW Eleventh Avenue
               Portland, Oregon 97209


TICKETS: online at www.PCS.org   (use promo code SIGN)
                  or call the box office  503-445-3700

INTERPRETER: Jayodin Mosher



Based on the true chronicles of David Sedaris’ experience as Crumpet the Elf in Macy’s Santaland display, this cult classic riffs on a few of Sedaris’ truly odd encounters with his fellow man during the height of the holiday crunch. NPR humorist and best-selling author of When You Are Engulfed in FlamesMe Talk Pretty One Day and Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, David Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers, and this production has become a Portland holiday tradition.

"Merge" interpreted at PCC this Friday

*
"Merge" at PCC Sylvania PAC
"MERGE" is an original PCC Theatre and Dance program collaboration.

Interpreted Performance: Friday, November 16, at 7:30pm

Location: PCC Sylvania campus in Performing Arts Center
               12000 Southwest 49th Ave, Portland, OR 97219
Tickets: General admission $10; Students and Seniors $8
            *Reservations required : call 971-722-4323, leave your name, the date of Friday 11/16, how many people in your group, and your contact phone number. Seating is limited to 45.*


Have you ever wondered who those people are who drive by you so fast and are seen in glimpses on the highway? Ever been stuck in traffic and wondered who you're parked next to? This performance will use both the PCC Sylvania Performing Arts Center lobby and theatre spaces to explore what happens when a group of unrelated characters at various cross-roads of their lives start to merge while stuck in a traffic jam. This fun, engaging and unique PCC original production explores themes of community, identity and the nature of the threads that hold society together, and the obstacles that keep us apart. Mixing movement, acting, a labyrinth, sound, audience interaction, text, improvisation, and a very interesting staging of a traffic jam that includes the audience, this production will have limited audience of 48 participants per show, so reservations are strongly encouraged.
Choreography and movement by PCC Dance chair Heidi Dyer. Design by Dan Hays, co-written by Heidi Dyer, Dan Hays and (directed by) PCC Theatre Chair Patrick Tangredi
