for your chance to win!
Today is another Big Give Day! When you give to Portland Playhouse through the Willamette Week Give Guide today, you'll be entered to win a Trek FX from Bike Gallery - and that's on top of a truck load of incentives from Give!Guide partners and a boat load of gifts from Portland Playhouse Plus, your gift will help get us to where we need to be - our goal of $15,000 will be matched by the Raymond Family Foundation.
A Christmas Carol officially opened last night with a joyous performance from our cast, a raucous standing ovation from our audience and a festive cookies and cocoa reception complete with Christmas Ships! Thank you to all who made it such a spirited evening!

Going into this weekend, we have TWO sold out performances on Friday and Saturday night, and many future performances are filling up fast, so if you haven't booked your tickets to this Dickensian dose of holiday spirit, do so soon.
If you'd like to see the show for free, we could use a few good volunteers as we get closer to Christmas. This is a wonderful opportunity for a families with older children to make a day of helping out our front of house staff and then seeing the show together.

If you are interested, please contact our Front of House Manager Anna Brown.
