Cascades Theatrical Company
148 NW Greenwood
Bend, OR | map
Cascades Theatrical Company (CTC) exists to provide equal opportunities for members of the Central Oregon community to be entertained and enriched by high quality theatrical productions, and to participate meaningfully in the creation and support of these productions. CTC strives to promote not only its own productions, but cultural arts throughout the region as well.
CTC is the only theatre in Central Oregon that is entirely volunteer-based. While a skeleton staff of two manages the organization’s day-to-day operations, all productions are directed, acted, designed, built and painted by volunteers. Those with a wealth of experience teach those with little or none. It’s a rare production at CTC that doesn’t feature at least one new face onstage or backstage—and more often than not the new volunteers have just as much to offer.
CTC presents six full-length, Main Stage productions yearly, with 12 – 17 performances each. In 2002, CTC also added a late-night Studio series, offering cutting-edge theatre in an alternative setting. CTC is also the ‘parent company’ to The Bend Theatre for Young People and The Children’s Musical Theatre Group”. These groups are specialized for the teaching and performance of theatre by children of all school ages.
