The Moth Mainstage in Portland

UPDATED COVID-19 ATTENDANCE POLICY

All ticket holders, regardless of age, are required to show proof of full COVID vaccination or a negative test result (within 72 hours) from a healthcare provider for entry into the theatre. “Fully vaccinated” means that ticket holders have received their final vaccination dose of either the two-dose regimen of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or one dose of Johnson & Johnson at least 14 days before your performance date. 

Also, in accordance with state and local guidelines, face masks are required for entry. Masks must completely cover nose and mouth. Gaiters and bandanas are not acceptable. If wearing a face mask that does not comply with Metro policy, Portland’5 will provide a face mask for patrons. Masks must be worn at all times except while eating or drinking for brief periods. Prolonged periods of mask removal are not permitted for eating or drinking – masks must be worn between bites and sips.

All Literary Arts staff and volunteers are fully vaccinated.

The Moth returns to Portland this December! This extraordinary performance will sell out quickly, so reserve your seats early and experience unforgettable stories told live.

Literary Arts and The Moth are bringing a new lineup of storytellers to Portland. Each Moth Mainstage show features five tellers who have developed their true stories about a given theme with help from The Moth’s directors.

The Moth is a nonprofit dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling.

Additionally, The Moth runs storytelling workshops for high school students, teachers, adults and advocates from around the world through its Education, Community and Global Programs, and MothWorks which uses the essential elements of Moth storytelling at work and other unexpected places. The Moth Podcast is downloaded over 61 million times a year, and each week, the Peabody Award-winning The Moth Radio Hour, presented by PRX, The Public Radio Exchange, is heard on 500 radio stations. The Moth has published three critically acclaimed books—international bestseller The Moth: 50 True Stories (2013), All These Wonders: True Stories about Facing the Unknown (2017) and the New York Times best seller, Occasional Magic: True Stories About Defying the Impossible (2019).
