About the Theater

Columbia Center for the Arts' theater hosts plays, dance performances, concerts, lectures and films, and is the home of CAST, the Columbia Arts Stage Troupe.

CAST has a proud history of providing live theater for residents of the Columbia River Gorge. Founded as a grassroots effort in 1978, it offers a range of opportunities for people who are experienced performers, and for those who want to develop their skills.

At least four productions are planned by CAST each year: Winter (February), Spring (May), Summer (July/August) and Fall (October). New talent and new faces to assist in the creative process are always welcome. Please join us!

Additional productions are brought to the theatre via partnerships and other arrangements.

"The Full Monty"

CAST Theater and Columbia Center for the Arts are pulling out all the stops this February when they bring The Full Monty to the stage.  The Full Monty is a story of a broke and out of work steelworker who finds inspiration after bumping into a male stripper. He and his equally desperate friends decide to give it their all – or rather show it all – to get rich quick.
