Top 5 Moments in Local Theater



Les Misérables (Tower Theatre)

"From the sumptuous and layered opening notes of 'At the End of the Day,' it was very apparent that the months of rehearsal have created not just an excellent piece of theater, but an event unlike any on the Central Oregon stage." —Jared Rasic,

Shakespeare in the Park

"With witty fools, foolish wits, disguises, malcontents, marriages and epic shipwrecks, Twelfth Night is one of Shakespeare's most classic and goofy comedies. The sunset ambiance of Drake Park and a crew of Pacific Northwest actors make for an unbeatable Shakespearian experience." —Brianna Brey

Evil Dead the Musical (2nd Street Theater)

"Evil Dead the Musical is the theatrical equivalent of going to a GWAR concert."

—Brianna Brey

Pillow Man (Volcanic Theatre)

"It's quite horrifying, really. Moving, awkwardly funny, uncomfortably laughable, and always dark, the committed acting truly reveals a humanistic quality to the deeply disturbing storyline."

—Brianna Brey

Announcement of Black Box plays at Cascade Theatrical Company

"While Bend has a well-developed and substantial theater scene, there's still plenty of Neil Simon being tossed around. Not that there's anything wrong with that, safe theater is theater no less, but as the lust for adventurous theater grows with the town, the time to step out of the Bend theater box is now. Enter the Black Box series from Cascades Theatrical Company. A three-play set with the intention of exposing local thespians to more unconventional and unusual productions, albeit still popular ones." – Jared Rasic
