Now On Stage

Coaster Theater presents: 'It's a Wonderful Life'
Cannon Beach
November 18-December 23, 2016

In our American culture It’s a Wonderful Life has become almost as familiar as Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. The saga of George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, dreams of escape and adventure only to have them quashed by family obligation and civic duty. His guardian angel descends on Christmas Eve to save him from despair and to remind him – by showing him – what the world would have been like had he never been born and that his life has been, after all, a wonderful life. This faithful adaptation celebrates the faith of the season, as well as the American philosophy of life: hard work, fair play and the love and support of one’s family and community will be rewarded.

108 North Hemlock Street
Cannon Beach, Oregon 97110
Box Office 503-436-1242

CoHo Productions presents: 'The How and the Why - Portland
October 20 - November 19, 2016

Two evolutionary biologists: one an eminent scholar and professor, the other an anxious student with a radical thesis. They are connected by more than just their focus on the female reproductive system - a fertile subject since scientists agree on the how of menstruation, but not the why.

The Oregon Cabaret Theatre presents 'Bat Boy’ - Ashland
September 22 - November 6, 2016

Portland Story Theater presents 'Urban Tellers'
November 4, 2016

The results are highly personal and authentic narratives. You might hear stories about difficult choices, transformational life experiences, or hilarious family interactions. Whatever the story, the people that perform at these events are authentic, funny and fearless.

November 4th will feature Kate Ristau, Gigi Rosenberg, Sage Cohen, Jamie Houghton, Jessica Mehta, and Rachel Miller-Howard.
