Roughly a century since their inception, musicals remain a favorite stage entertainment. Although Hugh Jackman’s train only goes as far as River City, you still have plenty of opportunities to catch a musical or three in Rose City and other parts of Oregon.
At Portland’5, you have a couple more days to see Tinderella (which has its last performance on April 17), produced by Stumptown Stages; Ring of Fire is next on their calendar (May 27 through June 18).
Tigard’s Broadway Rose, meanwhile, presents Don’t Hug Me, a rom-com musical about a karaoke salesman (now through May 8).
For some of the best in high school theater, get tickets for Newsies, presented by the award-winning theater program at Sam Barlow High School in Gresham (May 5-8).
And for the chivalrous at heart, there’s Camelot, which opens April 29 (and runs through June 12) at Lakewood Theater in Lake Oswego.
