Mainstage

Portland Story Theater’s Mainstage is a program that fosters the art of storytelling. Mainstage features stories by audience favorites who have worked with us before either in Urban Tellers®, our artist-in-residence program, or our Solo Festival, Singlehandedly. Each Mainstage show features six storytellers who develop and shape their stories using our unique collaborative approach. Beyond mere theatrical experience, beyond mere entertainment, Portland Story Theater is an ever-growing community telling stories that matter.
