Performing Arts Company
WINNER: Oregon Children’s Theatre (OCT)
The staff members at Oregon Children’s Theatre have had to use their vast amount of creativity to pivot during the pandemic. And Portland families appreciate it! OCT has offered virtual shows as well as a fun and educational YouTube series to keep kiddos entertained. OCT also hosts engaging theater classes via Zoom that range from acting for movies to stand-up comedy.
WINNER: Red Yarn Productions
If our kids could line up to go to a live concert right now, chances are they’d endure standing in the rain to see folk-rock great Red Yarn. His infectiously positive energy and menagerie of puppet critters have been engaging Portland littles for years. Be sure to check out his twice-a-week, live-streaming show Ramblin’ With Red Yarn.
