Columbia Center for the Arts offers a wide variety of performing arts events and programming. Throughout the year CCA offers audiences the chance to experience a full array of performances and entertainment that spark conversation, challenge the intellect, and touch the heart.
- Live Theatre Season 2017
Columbia Arts has a long history of live theatre productions, plays, and musicals in the Columbia River Gorge, offering performances by local, regional, and national companies. Our 2016-17 Season will feature classic tales, newly written performances, culturally-diverse productions, radio shows, one-person acts, children’s plays, staged readings, and more.
- National Theatre Live 2017
CCA proudly presents National Theatre Live, the National Theatre’s groundbreaking project to broadcast world-class theatre to cinemas in the UK and internationally. Though each broadcast is filmed in front of a live audience in the theatre, cameras are carefully positioned throughout the auditorium to ensure that cinema audiences get the ‘best seat in the house’ view of each production. Where these cameras are placed is different for each broadcast, to make sure that cinema audiences enjoy the best possible experience every time.
- CCA Presents Events
CCA Presents is a series of events offered across that year that include performing arts in genres outside of live theatre. The events include dance, concerts, artist talks, visual presentations, comedy, music, variety shows, film screenings, spoken word, fashion shows, literary readings, and more.
- poTENtial Program Series
In honor of our 10th Anniversary, Columbia Arts created the poTENtial Program Series to celebrate bringing art to life in the Gorge with ten special events. Each event focuses on one art form, including literary arts, performance, music, theatre, visual arts, film, dance, comedy, cultural, and photography. This unique program series will be rejuvenated each calendar year with exciting new events.
Every 2017 Performing Arts Event has been generously sponsored by
