Apprentices around town

From directing their own work to staring in other theatre productions to running their own theatre companies,  many past Portland Playhouse apprentices are active members of the Portland theatre scene.  Check out the work of our past apprentices now appearing in a theatre near you.

Featuring Season 8 Apprentice Quinlan Fitzgerald

Nov 19 - Dec 17

It’s the small dinner party that made big waves on Broadway about a fractured family at its not-so-finest. A bold, bruised, and billowing drama, The Humans layers the fabric of a family's past as they gather at the youngest daughter and her boyfriend's New York Chinatown apartment for a holiday meal. As the Blake family poke at old wounds and forcibly stumble through treasured traditions, tensions bubble over, secrets fight their way to the surface, and the world creaks curiously around them.

Dec 14 - 23  - Imago Theatre

Featuring Season 6 Apprentice Amy Katrina

Choreographer Jerry Mouawad pushes,
pulls and shoves five characters into a hotel lobby where identities shift, love is uncertain, and souls search for substance. Check-in and check-out become a commitment to live or run away. Live music drifts through HOTEL GONE as motifs propel dancing travelers through coat racks, exiting and entering a world of timeless seduction and trapped mysteries. Playing at Imago (in rep with FROGZ) for six shows only. Dec 14, 16, 17, 21, 22, and 23 at 7:30. Tickets are pay-what-you-will $10 to $20 and can be purchased by calling Imago at 503.231.9581 or 503.224.8499, or at the door.
