We are a community of artists, scholars, choreographers, designers, technicians, writers, and critics. Our goal is to nurture artist-scholars who are well read in dramatic literature, who understand the social and historical contexts of that literature, who appreciate contemporary performance and dance, who think critically, and who translate this knowledge into compelling artistic choices on stage. Fir Acres Theatre hums with activity and creativity from the first morning classes to rehearsals late into the evening. From department mainstage productions to dance concerts to student-driven festivals, our students have many opportunities to create performance and put theory into practice.


  • Eventually, you will find your people and your people will find you.

  • My favorite thing about living in Portland is the friendliness and acceptance of the community. Every time I go downtown, I’m reminded of how nice and welcoming people can be, from the smiles and hellos on TriMet to food cart owners remembering my face and asking me about life.
