Presenter Description:

"Red Octopus Theatre Company is well known for edgy scripts, superior sets, technical expertise, and the highest caliber of actors on the Central Oregon Coast."

- Oregon Coast Today

Red Octopus Theatre Company is a Non-Profit 501(c)3 Organization that has been bringing the very best in comedy, drama, classics, musicals, and original theatre to the beautiful Oregon Coast for over forty years. We proudly present two or more mainstage shows each year, in addition to our ongoing workshops, 24 Hour Theatre events, and Christmas show.

HISTORY: In 1978, four actors from San Francisco headed North. They landed in Newport, Oregon, joined forces with local actors, and the rest is history. The group has steadily expanded over the years to include hundreds of talented artists. Past performances were held in a variety of locations in Lincoln County: from local barns, to the Visitor Center of Oregon State University’s Hatfield Marine Science Center, and even the former Naterlin Center (now Newport’s City Hall). Our current home is in the Newport Performing Arts Center, built in Nye Beach in 1988. Visit our website at
