Portland Actors Ensemble

Portland’s Original Shakespeare-in-the-Parks, since 1970
The mission of PAE’s not-for-profit productions has remained virtually unchanged since 1970: “To bring financially accessible (free) classical theater to Portland communities in a non-traditional environment”. We have stood by this mission for over 46 years, and will continue to do so. Our Shakespeare-in-the-Parks program touches thousands of people each summer, many (often young families) attending their first/only theatrical experience
