Our 286-seat Mainstage Theater is the heart of our programming at Portland Stage. Each year we create seven full-scale productions from September to May on the Mainstage, featuring talented theater professionals from Portland and from away who costume, design, light, direct, and act in heartwarming comedies, gut-wrenching dramas and everything in-between. The Mainstage is also where you’ll find Affiliate Artist readings throughout the season.


A View From Every Seat

One of our favorite features of our Mainstage is that there isn’t a bad seat in the house. We have zero obstructed views, a large enough rise from every seat that there’s no need to worry about being too short to see, and the furthest seats in the house are just 45 feet away from the stage.
