Stumptown Stages

Musicals don’t just entertain us; they bring us together, and evoke the joys and sorrows we share in common.

Welcome to Stumptown Stages’ 2015-16 musical season.

Musicals don’t just entertain us; they bring us together, and evoke the joys and sorrows we share in common.

There is no better place to celebrate the musical art form than at Stumptown Stages. A cutting edge/innovative company, Stumptown Stages has presented over 35 musical productions since its inception in 2005.

True to our mission, Stumptown Stages is proud to present five incredibly diverse offerings. We open our season with the gripping, horrifying and beautifully moving Carrie: The Musical. Carrie: The Musical is based on the famed Stephen King novel with music and lyrics by the writers of Fame. This holiday season we bring back the ladies from Armadillo Acres in the hilarious The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical. This companion to the original The Great American Trailer Park Musical  is just as much of a “cat-fightin’, sun-worshippin’, chair-throwin’ good time-but with tinsel and Keg Nog.” Our third show of the season is the world premiere of The Adventures of Dex Dixon, Paranormal DickDex Dixon is designed to lampoon the cliffhanger serials of yesteryear, with classic 40’s era music by KJ McElrath and satirical film-noir script by Steve Coker. Our fourth show of the season is Smokey Joe’s Café, Broadway’s longest running musical revue. Smokey Joe’s includes songs by the legendary song-writing team of Leiber and Stoller such as “Jailhouse Rock,” “Stand by Me,” “Hound Dog” and more! And our final show of the 2015-16 musical season is the Tony Award winner In the Heights. This show features a multicultural sound and the Latin beat of the Upper Manhattan neighborhood of Washington Heights. In the Heights asks us to embrace and celebrate change while maintaining our rich cultural heritage.

With a reputation for artistic excellence, innovation, diversity, and integrity, Stumptown Stages is proud to be the City of Portland’s leading professional nonprofit musical theatre company. We look forward to having you join us for our 11th musical season at the Portland’5 Brunish Theatre!

Thank you for your support of Stumptown Stages!
