The Brody Theater

16 Northwest Broadway
Portland, OR 97210



The Brody's double focus--on entertainment and experiment--marks it as a showcase for both audience-pleasing performances and cutting edge theatrical presentation.

The Brody school, both a training ground for its own improvisers and a workshop for actors wishing to broaden their skills, creates at the theater a vital and vibrant exchange; Saturday night's spontaneous stage discovery becomes Monday's workshop focus, and vice-versa. This chemistry is one reason the Brody school counts among its students many members of other area performance troupes.

We offer a full course of study from beginning level basics through intermediate study, to advanced performance labs. As an active theater dedicated to the performance of improvised work, we can offer our dedicated and committed students stage time in public performance and the opportunity to fill openings in our permanent troupes. The majority of current company members came up through the ranks in our school.
