The Columbia Center for the Arts Theatre showcases productions and performances from the Columbia Gorge and beyond in a variety of ways.
How to participate in the Theatre & Performing Arts:
CCA Children’s Theatre
CCA is proud to announce a year-round Children’s Theatre program, with the goals of getting children engaged in Theatre, participating in school-based Theatre development, and bringing family-friendly Theatre to the Gorge area. Our Consulting Artistic Director, Sullivan Mackintosh, is programming workshops, program development, and four play productions in our black-box Theatre. Both children and adults will be appearing in these diverse, engaging performances. Learn more about the program here.
Theatre & Performing Arts Ideas
Have a great idea for a Children’s Theatre production? Want to bring a children’s troupe to town? We welcome your ideas and inquiries. Please email Events Manager here.

The History of CCA Theatre
Columbia Arts Stage Troupe (CAST) was the talented, community theatre troupe at CCA for ten years, having collaborated to form the Center in 2006. In 2016, the group formed their own theatre troupe, Stages, through the Columbia Gorge Orchestra Association.
