Thank you friends and fans of Portland Story Theater
First of all, we want to thank everyone who came to see our fall ensemble show, My Favorite Pair. It was a great run and we had a lot of fun telling our stories to warm and receptive audiences. Everyone who saw the show really enjoyed themselves. Thanks so much for coming out; we couldn't do it without you! Congratulations to Jim Cser, winner of a pair of Portland Story Theater season passes!

What's Next

Shackleton's Antarctic NightmareShackleton's Antarctic
January 23, 24, 30, & 31, 2009

Back by popular demand! PST is pleased to announce the return of last year's sold-out solo show: the true, epic tale of Ernest Shackleton and the voyage of the Endurance, written and told by Lawrence Howard.

This is the gripping, heart-breaking, true story of British explorer, Ernest Shackleton, and the Trans-Antarctic Expedition of 1914. Shackleton's dream of being the first to cross the Antarctic continent on foot became a nightmare when his valiant ship, the Endurance, was crushed in the pack-ice of the Weddell Sea. The story of how he and the twenty-seven men of the expedition survived on the ice and eventually came to safety is an epic tale of hardship and suffering, of courage, determination and fortitude.

Many who saw the show last year have said they would come again; many who missed it have begged for a return performance. Woven with just a touch of personal narrative about Lawrence and his father and the lifelong passion they shared for the Shackleton saga, this is a performance that will move you to the depths of your soul.

Four shows only! Get your tickets today!

If you've already got your tickets, you rock!

If not, you still rock, but don't miss out. Seating is limited. Make your reservations today for Shackleton's Antarctic Nightmare

Valentine's Day

Smitten - PST's Valentine's Day
ShowThe Shackleton show will hardly be over before it's Valentine's Day. We've got a terrific line-up, with a duet by Will Hornyak & Concetta Antonelli and another by Lynne Duddy & Lawrence Howard - who knows, you might even see a real-life martial meltdown on the stage - while Penny Walter and Michael Philips round out the evening with stories of true love, heartbreak, and the one that got away. Remember that woman who was so beautiful it hurt you just to look at her? Or that man you loved so much you wanted to smite him hip and thigh? Come see the show; you're sure to be smitten.
