August 31 – September 6 2015

This week, Or, is smack in the middle of its rehearsal process, getting ready for its opening on September 19. Says director Philip Cuomo,

It is glorious to be in a rehearsal room filled with Liz’ language and Maureen’s, Amy’s and Damon’s talents, exploring themes of art, theatre and love. Oh…and did I mention there is a lot of making out?

Also this week, the new Third Rail Mentorship Company kicks off their year with us with the Mentee Mega Weekend, in which our new Third Rail Mentees lock themselves in a room for 36 hours to devise a piece of theatre (because what’s a better ice breaker for a group of emerging artistic professionals?). Members can join us at 10am on Sunday, September 6 to see the fruits of their intense, exciting, electric, and sleep-deprived labor. Contact the box office at 503-235-1101 or boxoffice@thirdrailrep.org to secure your seat ahead of time.

The Mentees will be spending nearly a year with us, pairing with Company Members in arenas both administrative and artistic, to help them develop skills they’ll need as they emerge into the professional theatre world. We hope you’ll take a second to introduce yourself to them in the lobby and help us welcome them to the family!
