Vibrant. Intimate. Authentic.
Our mission is to breathe new life into the classics.
Once you step inside our theatre, you can’t help but immerse yourself in our performances. Our resident acting company works closely together to breathe life into the intentions of history’s greatest playwrights. Outside of the rehearsal process, we work with industry-leading experts to ensure we’re staying at the top of our game. What results is a unique, memorable audience experience with the world’s greatest plays.
Now in our 15th year, Northwest Classical Theatre Company is Portland’s only resident classical theatre company specializing in creating authentic, accessible performances of classical works. We call the 38-seat, Shoebox Theatre home—which serves as a creative catalyst for our artists, and brings unique intimacy to the plays of the world’s most famous authors for our audiences. Our 2012-13 season promises to surprise and delight audiences with bold moves, first-time productions, and new spins on timeless classics.
