All Proceeds Benefit OCCA's "Entertain the Future" Capital Campaign

Oregon Coast Council for the Arts is so close to the finish line on a campaign that has spanned several years and six previous phases. The final phase will see much-needed renovations to the David Ogden Stiers Studio Theatre and backstage areas of the Newport Performing Arts Center. Due to COVID delays and increase costs, the campaign came up just short of the amount needed to finish the work. All proceeds from these staged readings will go directly to the OCCA Capital Campaign, to help bring this massive project to completion.

In addition to PAC measures, Red Octopus has opted to place a buffer (empty) seat between parties.We suggest that you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to showtime. Please note that the Performing Arts Center is a SCENT-FREE ZONE.
