The future of playwriting will be on display at The Armory during the Visions & Voices Showcase, May 15 and 16 at 7:00 p.m.

These free public performances in the Ellyn Bye Studio will feature professional actors performing staged readings of plays and monologues written by local high school students who participated in Portland Center Stage at The Armory’s Visions & Voices education program.

Each year, these showcases delight audiences with readings that are honest, funny, moving and exhilarating. Works by students from schools such as Cleveland High School, Franklin High School, Liberty High School, Lincoln High School, Sam Barlow High School, Sunset High School and Wilson High School will be debuted.

"Visions & Voices provides a platform upon which students may explore ideas and investigate their world through theater — free of censorship and always with permission to take daring, artistic risks,” said The Armory’s Resident Teaching Artist Matthew B. Zrebski.

“In having the opportunity to witness their creations brought to life by professional actors in a public forum,” he continued. “Students are given the rare opportunity to fully engage with their work as it intersects with the most important and final collaborator in the art form: the audience."
