Studio Series

The Studio Series is an ongoing project consisting of performances hosted by Portland Stage featuring Affiliate Artists and are performed in the Studio Theater.

These performances range from readings of fledgling plays, more focused and rehearsed workshops, and even full productions.

Our Affiliate Artists present and participate in a diverse range of programs each season, dedicated to exploring new theatrical works, bringing the written word to the stage, and welcoming the community into the theater.

A comedy about love, survival, and the California Wolverine.

High in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, in the middle of a majestic natural park, sits a small Natural History Museum and Gift Shop decorated to look like the forest outside. From within, Lee is trying to stop the hasty development scheduled by the new owners. But when she enlists the help of an old friend, Lee invites more than fond memories into her forest refuge.
