About Studio Rep
Now in its second year Studio Rep is a collaborative project launched by Portland Stage to build bridges between the theater, local theater artists, and our audience. The aims of Studio Rep are to learn about what excites the next generation of theater artists; introduce our audiences to their work and their audiences to ours; and above all, to contribute to the ongoing vibrancy of Portland’s theater ecology.
For the 2014 Studio Rep Portland Stage will host productions from Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday Theatre Company, The Improvised Puppet Project, and Lanyard Theatre Company.
Companies & Productions
The goal of the MTWTFSS Theatre Company is to create a unique brand of theatre that offers something different for Portland audiences in new and exciting ways. With plays such as SEX a.k.a. Wieners and Boobs and Mr. Marmalade, MTWTFSS plays with a style of humor that is quite unlike anything in town. Our mission statement, should you choose to accept it: Fun.

Lanyard Theatre Company is a professional theater troupe operating primarily in the state of Maine with a focus on workshopping and producing purely new works. Founded in 2005, the outfit blossomed out of a playwriting intensive called the Trigorin Project, which placed high school writers and actors with professional mentors from Maine and New York. Lanyard seeks to support the growth of new and established playwrights alike, and help give voice to the next generation of theater artists of all kinds.
