Oregon Stage Works was established as a 501 (c) 3 non-profit performance group in October of 2002 in response to an outpouring of community support for the creation of a professional theatre company focusing on the actor and the text and the staging of developing and master American playwrights. Inspired by the diversity of American society, OSW is dedicated to enlightening artists and audiences alike with creative and challenging theatre works…simultaneously embracing a community of all ages and cultures with affordable professional theatre.
