Get your tickets now for SEUSSICAL the musical that brings Dr Seuss’ best-loved characters — from The Cat In The Hat to Horton (and his Whos) to life, with tunes crafted by the composers behind such Broadway hits as ONCE ON THIS ISLAND. A talented group of 17 Middle School students from throughout the Portland area have created the pilot production of this new addition The Project’s Second Stage Family.
Markedly different from The Project’s major summer show (this year’s TARZAN), our Summer Second Stage show is designed to be a launching point for productions in area middle schools throughout the year, with a set and staging especially crafted for presentation in Middle School theatres, gymnasiums and cafetoriums.
PERFORMANCES ARE SATURDAY, AUGUST 10 at 2 and 7 pm.
All seats are $7, general admission.
Our 2013 Performing Arts Camp production, Disney’s TARZAN features the characters and songs from the beloved animated feature, performed by over 100 young people from throughout the Portland area (and beyond).
Performances are July 11-14, Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 pm and Sunday at 2 pm
All seats are $10 for all ages, and can be purchased by clicking here.
The Project’s 2013 Summer Performing Arts Camp adventure is about to begin, with Children’s Chorus, Junior Ensemble, and Tech Theatre students gathering on June 17 to begin work on the show. On June 29, the 54 principal cast members — middle and high school students from throughout the region — will meet at Caldera in central Oregon, and then things really start swinging!
Don’t miss Disney’s TARZAN, featuring over 100 young people from the Portland area and beyond, July 11-14 at Jesuit High School’s Marilyn Moyer Theatre. Tickets go on sale June 22!

A huge THANK YOU to all of the sponsors, guests and donors who attended our annual fundraiser! The cabaret was a great success! We had about 70 Project supporters attend and raised about ten thousand dollars in pledges and donations! The fundraiser performance featured five current Project students as well as seven Project alumni, who told stories through song about the impact that The Project has had on their young lives. Mike Wenrick, another project alumni and regional director for Medical Teams international, gave a heartfelt and poignant keynote speech highlighting how The Project has not only affected him but also how he uses his theatre background in his work with children and families in need in Latin America and the Carribbean. We were very fortunate to have in attendance Elisa Klein of the Portland Society page, who took some fabulous photographs!
