  • at 7:00pm in PST
  • Eliot Chapel, First Unitarian Church - SW 12th Avenue and Salmon Street, Portland OR
Join us for a performance of the award-winning play 'My Name is Rachel Corrie,' directed and performed by talented folks from the University of Central Connecticut. Based on the diaries of an American activist and Evergreen University student who was killed by an Israeli-operated Caterpillar bulldozer in 2003, the play gives the audience an intimate window into Rachel's experience of Gaza and her dedication to Palestinian rights and liberation.

The performance will be followed by a discussion with the actor and director. Both are involved in Palestine solidarity and will be raising money for the Jenin Freedom Theater through this performance tour. We are asking a suggested donation of $10 but none will be turned away for lack of funds. Tickets are first-come, first-serve- please be early to ensure your place.

Sponsored by First Unitarian Church Peace Action Group, Jewish Voice for Peace - Portland, Americans United for Palestinian Human Rights, Friends of Sabeel Portland Action Group, Students United for Palestinian Equal Rights, Lutherans for Justice in the Holy Land, and others.

THE GHOSTS OF TONKIN
Written by Steve Lyons;  Directed by Mark Kuntz
It will topple the president of the United States.
     It will devastate two countries.
         It will kill two million people.
 And one man will try to stop it before it begins.


In association with the Wayne Morse Legacy Series, Bellingham TheatreWorks presents the powerful, behind-closed-doors story of how seemingly well-intentioned public officials brought about one of the most devastating chapters in the history of the United States: The Vietnam War.  And how Oregon's Senator Wayne Morse tried to stop it before it began.

Play followed by post-play discussion moderated by KBOO's Jo Ann Hardesty.

"watch a bookworm blossom into a butterfly" - Portland Monthly Mag

 

Catch a ride on the Dreamboat with all your literary crushes in Camille Cettina’s original one-woman show. A visceral celebration of the joy of reading books, this literary frolic is a mash up of books and characters – from Nancy Drew to JD Salinger, T.S Elliot and the romance and fantasy of Jane Austen. Audiences embark on a journey through literary worlds they have known and loved, guided by “the kind of instantly charming performer that any theatergoer might be happy to watch”. - The Oregonian

"Camille Cettina can certainly make 80 minutes fly by." - Anne Adams, Portland Monthly Mag

"Mimetic movement, dance, speech, light, and sound are all complexly interwoven in this homage to books and the literature they bear." - Richard Wattenberg, Special to The Oregonian

"Cettina gives each of these works a sort of performed precis, running down major plot points as all the relevant characters, moving from person to person gracefully, every action aided by skillful mime." - Ben Waterhouse, Willamette Week

"deft and insightful" - Alison Hallett, The Portland Mercury

      Jewish Theatre Collaborative finds a home at El Centro Milagro

       

      Miracle Theatre Group (aka Milagro) and the Jewish Theatre Collaborative are thrilled to announce a JTC’s impending residency for the coming years at El Centro Milagro.  Milagro will share its spaces and resources with JTC, in essence, offering it a home. JTC is a young, itinerant theatre company that has developed a strong following with Jewish and non-Jewish audiences; residency will provide stability for JTC from which to grow stronger.

       

      While a relief to JTC, which had been rendered homeless by the closure of Theatre Theater, this is not a new relationship but an evolution of an artistic affinity a decade old. As a culturally identified organization focused on Latino arts, Milagro has served as a role model and Executive Director José Gonzalez as a mentor to JTC Founder and Executive Director Sacha Reich since JTC’s inception.  Reich has a long and rich history with Milagro, serving for several years as an Artistic Associate and directing MainStage productions.  Reich is a colleague, friend and member of Milagro's family. As JTC began to produce both main stage productions and develop a touring capacity inspired in part by Teatro Milagro, El Centro Milagro frequently served as a venue for holiday performances and rehearsals.  The two companies share a passion for theatre that offers culturally specific stories to broader audiences in a way that has artistic integrity and is dramatically compelling.

       

      Jewish Theatre Collaborative began their search for a home as the news of Theatre Theater closing rocked the Portland Theatre community.  Finding the right location was paramount to JTC who will be launching their new Page2Stage program this coming year.  It was important for JTC to stay rooted in Portland’s Eastside neighborhoods. While much of the Page2Stage programming can be accessed at satellite venues around the city, JTC will need an anchor and solid home for the culminating main stage production, which in 2014 will be the world premiere adaptation of Meir Shalev’s novel A Pigeon and a Boy. Resonating poetically with JTC’s real life needs, the novel is deeply interested in the subject of home. 

       

      At four years, JTC is still a fledgling theatre company.  In 2013-2015, Milagro will be celebrating its 30th Anniversary Season.  At El Centro Milagro, JTC has found a home that it loves, that will nurture it and help it to flourish for the exciting foreseeable future.

       

      About Jewish Theatre Collaborative:

      The Jewish Theatre Collaborative is a creative, innovative response to a Jewish Community challenged by both fragmentation and drift away from traditional institutions.  Like museums and Judaic Studies programs, JTC brings together Jewish and non-Jewish audiences to explore the complex legacy of the Jewish experience in the modern world.  No other organization in Oregon is able to harness the unique outreach potential of theatre performance to achieve this goal. Despite a growing Jewish population on the Eastside, there is little organized Jewish life and even less Jewish Cultural opportunities to nourish them.

       

      About Milagro:

      An extraordinary Latino arts and culture organization, Milagro is a company that merges the highest aesthetic ideals with social responsibility, illustrated by a long tradition of innovative programming to meet the needs of the region’s diverse artists and audiences.  Milagro consistently seeks new ways to weave the performing arts into the fabric of community life, and enhances the livability of Northwest communities by collaborating with human and social service organizations that wish to use the performing arts to address issues of concern, including health, education and cultural sensitivity. Through a rich variety of artistic programs, Miracle gives a primary voice to issues affecting the local and national Latino community, and introduces a host of new performers and diverse audience to the local arts and arts education fields.

      Best,

    This summer, were planning a staged reading of "Voices of the People's History" in late June. In it, speakers will read excerpts/adaptations of the readings from Howard Zinn's People's History of the United States, which brings to life the extraordinary history of ordinary people who built social movements that have shaped our country.

    This event is a fundraiser for our summer Organizer in Training (OiT) program, which develops leadership and organizing skills in young people (mostly high-school and college age youth) through a 9 week long summer program. The OiT program has developed 12 leaders over its 3 year history; graduates of the program have continued to work in social justice and in grassroots organizing, and we are proud of their success. In order to establish this program with stable funding, we are creating an inaugural fundraising event around the program and the youth participants.
