Red Octopus Theatre Company, a Non-Profit Organization, has been bringing the very best in comedy,
drama,classics, musicals, and original theatre to the beautiful Oregon Coast for nearly forty years.
"Red Octopus Theatre Company is well known for edgy scripts, superior sets, technical expertise
and the highest caliber of actors on the Central Oregon Coast."
- Oregon Coast Today

In 1978, four actors from San Francisco headed North. They landed in Newport, Oregon, joined forces with local actors, and the rest is history ... with the group constantly expanding over the years to include hundreds of talented artists. Past performances were held in a variety of locations in Lincoln County: from local barns, to the Visitor Center of Oregon State University’s Hatfield Marine Science Center and even the former Naterlin Center (now Newport’s City Hall). Our current home is in the Newport Performing Arts Center, built in Nye Beach in 1988
