2016-17 Annual Report


Reviewing the many exciting highlights from the past year in the preceding

pages, I am heartened to rediscover just how much we have accomplished.

Through our diverse productions and programs, Portland Stage offers

numerous points of entry, and we bring community together—to laugh, to

cry, to enjoy, but also to inspire conversation and to deepen

understanding. The Mainstage is and has been our core, and from that

strong center, we have begun to nurture future audiences and artists

through our Education Programs, as well as develop the classics of

tomorrow through our New Work Development Programs. As a supporter

of Portland Stage, you helped to shape the year that was, and you can help

us continue to grow and thrive in the years to come. Thank you for playing

your part in connecting Portland Stage more deeply with our community.

I look forward to continuing the discovery.
