Portland Community Arts Council
The Arts. At first glance, it's a school mural, a summer concert series, a community theater production.
Look a little closer. You'll see educational development, cultural diversity, and economic growth.
Closer still. Inspiration, enrichment, and empowerment come into view. For our youth, our community, and ourselves.
This is the Portland Community Arts.
PLUNGE CANCELLED. We regretfully announce the cancellation of the Portland Plunge on Sat., March 1st. So disappointing that we have to cancel. Who could have predicted that it would be worse in March than it was in January? (And we're doubtful we'd be able to clear a hole in the ice when it's this thick.) Please help us spread the word. Often, people just show up for this (without telling us ahead of time), and we have no way to reach everyone. Thanks!

"Bye, Bye Birdie" is a stage musical adapted from the book by Michael Stewart. Originally titled "Let’s Go Steady," the play is a satire on American society set in 1958. The story was inspired by the popular singer Elvis Presley and his draft notice into the Army in 1957. The rock star character’s name, “Conrad Birdie,” is word play on the name of Conway Twitty. Twitty is best remembered as a country music star, but in the late 1950s, he was one of Presley’s rock ‘n’ roll rivals.
