Portland Area Theatre Alliance Welcomes All Theatre-Makers to Our Summer Gathering

Come to Portland Center Stage, Sunday, July 21, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm for libations and lively conversation during our Portland Area Theatre Alliance (PATA) Summer Gathering.

Catch up with theatre friends old and new while sipping a Willamette Winery vintage or a Gigantic Brewing craft beer. And there’ll be snacks — sweet and savory — aplenty!

And it’s free! Come and bring friends!

There’ll be door prizes (movie tickets, haircuts, cool stuff) and a raffle to benefit The Valentine Fund; a way for theatre people to help colleagues who are temporarily in need of a financial boost.

Dear Portland Theatre Community,  If you’re passionate about the local theatre community, we need your help!  The Portland Area Theatre Alliance (PATA) is actively looking for individuals to join our Board of Directors. Our programs include the Citywide General Auditions, the Unified Shakespeare & Classical Auditions, the Fertile Ground Festival of New Works and the Valentine Fund. As a member-based organization, PATA supports and celebrates our region’s vibrant theatre community by fostering opportunity, innovation, and collaboration.  We are currently looking to fill five board member openings. Board members serve a two-year term with a commitment to attend a monthly virtual board meeting and participate in one of our PATA committees. Individuals with experience in accounting, fundraising, marketing, grant writing and/or public administration are highly encouraged to apply. While having board members with experience in these areas is beneficial to PATA, it is not a requirement, and we encourage all members of our theatre community to apply, regardless of experience.  For more information about PATA, please visit our website at portlandtheatre.com. Questions regarding Board membership may be directed to either Matthew Miller, Board President, via email at matthew@portlandtheatre.com or you may reach out to our Office Administrator via phone at 503-449-6270 or via email at info@portlandtheatre.com.
