Missing Link Theatre Company is dedicated to producing relevant, relatable, thought-provoking works that connect with our Portland Community. We have three, very specific goals:
To produce high quality, professional shows with relatable substance; Conversation starters that strive to do more than simply entertain.
To create a place where aspiring theatre talent can hone their craft. Whether performance or technical in aspect, it is important to us that we provide a professional setting for people just starting out (or returning to the fold).
To support all Portland community artists. We firmly believe that a rising tide lifts all ships, and supporting your local artists, in all their myriad forms, is just the right thing to do.
