"The word theatre comes from the Greeks. It means the seeing place. It is the place people come to see the truth about life and the social situation."
~ Stella Adler

"The theatre is the involuntary reflex of the ideas of the crowd."
~ Sarah Bernhardt

Artistic Director's Message

Message from the Artistic DirectorAs we race forward in this new millenium, the need for great theatre and art steadily increases. More people, more culture, and more gigabytes are racing by us... and where are the mirrors to show us what we are and who we are?

Oregon craves creations which challenge our fixed ideas while tickling our hearts.

Oregon Repertory Theatre strives to move ahead in this realm.

Please join us in the theatre as we collaborate on all the issues at hand, as profound, mundane, and hilarious as they might be!

See you at the Theatre!

Jeffrey Jason Gilpin
Artistic Director
