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.
CAST, now part of the Columbia Center for the Arts, has been providing community theatre since 1978.
In South Boston, gossiping and bustin' chops is the name of the game. Good People is a funny, tough and tender story about the insurmountable class divide. This play from Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lindsay-Abairelooks at the extraordinary consequences of choosing to hold on to the past or leave it behind.
Dad's an architect; Mom rushes to pack lunches and pour cereal; their daughter and son are bright, wise-cracking teens, appearing to be a typical American family. And yet their lives are anything but normal, because the mother has been battling bipolar disorder for 16 years. Next To Normal takes audiences into the minds and hearts of each character, presenting their family's story with love, sympathy and heart. And, importantly, much more humor that one might expect.
Join us on Columbia Art’s 8th annual trip departing on Thursday, July 9th and returning on Sunday, July 12th by coach.
