We are fully into the holiday season. But among the carol-singing, cider-drinking, dreidel-spinning, and merry-making, there will also be a lot happening at Third Rail!

Mr. Kolpert – First Read and Design Presentation (MEMBER ONLY EVENT)

All month, we will be having production meetings leading up to the start of Mr. Kolpert rehearsals. We’re giddy to be finally producing this show and we’d love to have you with us from the beginning. Hear the actors dive into this electric text and enjoy the designers’ presentations of their concepts for the world of the play. This is a great way to get a behind-the-scenes peek into Third Rail’s process.

December brings you three Members Only Events! So if you’ve been considering becoming a Member, December is a good month to give yourself this gift!

Best wishes and happy holidays to all!

November 23 – November 29, 2015

It’s a holiday week! We had a fun evening on Monday screening NT Live’s The Beaux’ Stratagem for Company Members and the Mentorship program. We have those early screenings for ourselves to make sure there are no glitches in the broadcast and because there are never enough seats for us at the public screenings! We fully expect that will be the case for the upcoming The Beaux’ Stratagem.

Then, that rarest of weeks, one without further events. We all will continue to work on company business here at HQ and prepare for a full December line-up. But in the meantime…

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! We are certainly thankful for your continued support, our ongoing conversation with our audience, and the Portland theatre community. We wish you a wonderful, food-filled weekend and we’ll be back with lots to tell you about in December!
