Who We Are

World Stage Theatre is a multi-cultural, multi-generational arts organization with a focus on history, literature, music, traditional and original works designed to catapult performers and audience members into social consciousness by integrating fantasy, fiction and a pinch of reality.

Through arts, education, and advocacy, we create platforms to amplify disregarded voices while building bridges of unity to disband isms.

Founded in 2006, World Stage Theatre was birthed out of a desire for change in storytelling, the narrative, accurate and diverse representation in the arts, textbooks and Portland Metropolitan community. 

We see arts and culture as the centerpiece of our community development table creating a gathering where connection and collaboration foster partnerships.


World Stage Theatre celebrates service to our community through performances, creative conversations, partnerships, projects and volunteer opportunities.
