Romance/Romance is composed of two one-act musicals linked only by the common theme of love and one song performed in both acts.

The first musical,The Little Comedy, explores the budding relationship between two people who have adopted personas other than their own. Set in late 19th century Vienna, we find Josefine, weary of the social life provided by her upper-class lovers, and wealthy playboy Alfred, who has tired of a seemingly endless round of inconsequential affairs. She assumes the guise of a working-class woman, while he pretends to be a struggling poet, and the two meet while enjoying their new identities.

Summer Share, the second musical is set in The Hamptons, where two married couples in their thirties are spending the season in a rented cottage. Sam, who is married to Barb, and Monica, who is married to Lenny, find themselves gradually progressing from harmless flirtation to the serious possibility of an illicit affair.

Lost Treasures Collection - Curated by Dennis Corwin

The Lost Treasures Collection, now in its 13th season, is a series of obscure and rarely performed musicals presented in concert/cabaret version for one weekend only on our Side Door Stage. No sets, no props and none of the usual trappings of a fully staged production. Picture Portland's foremost performers presenting some of the most beautiful, comedic, and witty songs of musical theatre. Food, wine, and other beverages are available for purchase before and during the show.

This season we are pleased to have our Lost Treasures Collection Sponsered by Fritz Camp.
