Experience OCT: A Benefit

Oregon Contemporary Theatre's annual benefit, Experience OCT, supports OCT's professional theatre productions and exceptional, life-long education programming. The evening's festivities include local food and drinks, a silent auction, a wine wall, and performances by incredible local talents!

  • Experience OCT: A Benefit


Ever wonder how a designer created an effect? What helped an actor to make a moment real? What a director thinks a play is all about? Now is your chance to ask! Following each Sunday matinee performance of the regular season, OCT hosts a post-show discussion with several members of the cast and production team.
