Now celebrating its 60th anniversary, the historic Lakewood Center for the Arts of Lake Oswego is a fixture of the Portland Oregon arts scene. The ongoing 2012-2013 main stage lineup offers a diverse arrangement of hit plays and classic musicals. There is still time to book seats for Irving Berlin’s iconic White Christmas. In January, the Company begins its run of Grand Hotel (no relation!), the 1989 Broadway musical about the intersecting stories of eccentric characters at an elegant 1928 Berlin hotel. Next, the Company presents Neil Simon’s Rumors, a farcical comedy of manners, followed the whimsical 1983 Tony Award winning play, La Cage Aux Folles. We are privileged to have this Portland Oregon cultural institution so nearby.

Dec. 12 – Dec. 23
Jan. 11 – Feb 17
Mar. 8 – Apr. 14
La Cage Aux Folles

Theatre-goers and music lovers staying at The Grand Hotel Bridgeport may be interested to know about the The Broadway Rose Theatre Company. The theatre, located just minutes from our hotel, is the only professional musical theater company in Washington County. The theatre combines nationally and locally recognized professionals with high quality production values to bring performances that rival national Broadway tours. A local favorite, The Broadway Rose Theatre was selected as the 2009 “Business of the Year” by the Tigard Chamber of Commerce.
The next production, Winter Wonderettes, The New ’60s Christmas Musical Created by Roger Bean, opens November 19 and will run through December 20. Gal-pal singing group The Marvelous Wonderettes have been invited to perform at the 1968 holiday party for Harpers Hardware Store. Beauty queen Cindy Lou, wise-crackin’ gum chewin’ Suzy, shy gal Missy, and scrappy Betty Jean create a rockin’ lively mix of 50s and 60s holiday hits and standards. But when Santa turns up missing, the girls must use their talent and creative ingenuity, with the support of some great familiar and not-so-familiar holiday gems, to rectify their holiday party without the jolly big guy in red. The result is a marvelous show that will have you dancing in the aisles and celebrating in Winter Wonderettes style.
