Red Octopus Theatre Company produces live theatre to excite, challenge, inspire, nurture, include, educate, entertain, and invigorate our community.

“Red Octopus Theatre Company is well known for edgy scripts, superior sets, technical expertise, and the highest caliber of actors on the Central Oregon Coast.” – Oregon Coast Today

HISTORY: In 1978, four actors from San Francisco headed North. They landed in Newport, Oregon, joined forces with local actors, and the rest is history. The group has steadily expanded over the years to include hundreds of talented artists. Past performances were held in a variety of locations in Lincoln County: from local barns, to the Visitor Center of Oregon State University’s Hatfield Marine Science Center, and even the former Naterlin Center (now Newport’s City Hall). Our current home is in the Newport Performing Arts Center, built in Nye Beach in 1988.
