Historical NoteReturn to Top

The first two decades of the twentieth century were golden years for live theatre in Portland. Evening and afternoon entertainment by stock companies, road shows and vaudeville flourished. By 1925, however, empty theatres caused by the disappearance of these performing groups energized three Portland women, Susan Farrell, Florence Bristol and Delta Spencer, "the founders," to organize a new company, the Art Theatre Players. Within a year they presented their first production, Henrietta the Eighth. (Included in the cast were Susan Farrell and future culinary expert James Beard). In 1929, concerned that they appeared to others to be a private organization, the members changed the name of their company to the Portland Civic Theatre (PCT). Several player groups merged into the newly-named group.

In 1934 the Portland Civic Theatre School was started with Doris Smith, an actress and drama coach, as dean. Their first production, at the Reed College Bowl, was Twelfth Night. Subsequently the Board declined an offer from Reed College for a piece of land and $15,000 towards a theatre building, fearing that the Reed location might be too distant from downtown. The theatre was then located on NW Burnside. In 1936, the Blue Room for touring shows was fashioned out of this rented space. In 1937, Donald Mayre became the theatre's director. He would stay for the next twelve years.

Adverse conditions related to unsatisfactory work facilities and the need to hire theatres stimulated the Board to raise money and build a theatre at 1530 SW Yamhill Street. After it opened, in 1942, the Junior Civic Theatre began producing plays for children by children. Jim Cameron succeeded Donald Mayre in 1949.

The 1950s and 1960s were very productive years. A twelve-month season in the theatre was inaugurated, summer musicals with the Portland Symphonic Choir were produced, a summer beach season was initiated, and in 1958 the PCT Guild was founded by Mary Brand as an independent support group (it is still active). In 1965 PCT membership numbered 3,125.

However, in 1968 an emergency appeal for funds was sent to all members. By 1971 membership had dwindled to 1,525, and the theatre building was mortgaged. New ideas were tried: the Guest Director System was initiated by Isabella Chappell, who had become the general manager, and Summer Repertory Onstage (S.R.O.), the first theatre to pay local actors, was founded by Bill Dobson. Twelve years later a PCT production, Sunday in the Park with George, was the opening performance in the new Portland Performing Arts Center. The Portland Civic Theatre for Youth, under the management of Sondra Pearlman, started in-school productions at the Civic Auditorium.

PCT had been one of the largest Community Theatres in the country in terms of budget, at $1 million, and its programs included two theatres, a school, the S.R.O. series, and a professional children's theatre. Yet PCT continued to struggle for a variety of complex and intertwined reasons, and eventually closed in June 1990. The theatre building was sold to the MALCO company, and in 1993 it was demolished.

The locations of the productions, when known, are noted. The majority of productions occurred on the Mainstage or in the smaller Blue Room at the PCT building. The names of the companies within the PCT are also noted. The organization changed its name from the Art Theatre Players to the Portland Civic Theatre in 1929. The Summer Repertory Onstage (S.R.O.)
