How to Experience Theater Performances in Mt. Hood Territory During COVID-19

Know Now COVID-19

Please Note: Many of the local theatre events in Mt. Hood Territory have postponed 2021 shows due to COVID-19 precautions. See below for details.

The theater scene looks a little different this year due to COVID-19, but companies and performers across Mt. Hood Territory have come up with creative ways to keep people involved with the live performing arts scene. And companies forgoing 2021 events have put their energy into the 2021-22 season, so you can plan ahead.

Lakewood Center for the Arts

2021 update: Due to COVID-19, Lakewood Theatre Company's Murder on the Orient Express will be unassigned seating in order to utilize a modified social distancing seating chart. Elf may have to follow this protocol as well depending on what the requirements are at the given time. You may find 2021 performance details and COVID precautions on their website. They are also offering full show recordings with captions. If you have questions, please email their office at

As the oldest continuously operating theater company in the area their tenure speaks volumes. Offering a full season of plays, art and dance classes and a remodeled community room that can accommodate 50-225 guests, it's a stand out in Lake Oswego.

Nutz-n-Boltz Theater Company

2021 update: The theater company's 2020-21 season has been announced. They currently have their COVID-19 precautions and show information and tickets available.

Each year they host at least five theater productions in the Boring-Damascus Grange Hall, as well as offering acting lessons and summer camps for kids. Plus their motto of "from the ground up" stage performing is one not to miss.

New Century Players Community Theater

2021 update: Keeping the outlook that they will at some point be returning to the stage, they have been working on the 2020-21 season's lineup and will share that information as soon as it is finalized.

Their mission is to build community and opportunities for artistic expression through their lives performances. You can catch a myriad of plays at the Rose Villa Performing Arts Center in Milwaukie throughout the year. 

Clackamas Repertory Theatre

2021 update: Out of an abundance of caution for the safety of their patrons and younger performers, many of whom would need to be completely vaccinated by mid-May to start rehearsals for The Book Club Play and by mid-June for Desperate Measures, they have made the tough decision to once again postpone their season. However, they are planning two 2021 productions, a two-man farce outside in a small amphitheater on the college campus in July-Aug and Queens Girl in Africa inside in September. Watch their website for updates. They also have their 2022 season announced.

Part of the Clackamas Community College Foundation, this theater offers former and current students a place to gain professional experience while putting on a fantastic show for the audience. Bonus, they offer very affordable ticket prices and free parking. 

Check the nearby dining options before you go or secure a sitter and make a full night of it by staying at a great hotel.
