Formerly the Corbett Children’s Theater, the newly re-named Eastside Theater Company is now based in downtown Gresham.
The former Corbett Children’s Theater has a new name, but the performance remains the same. Announced Monday, July 17, the newly dubbed Eastside Theater Company made its first appearance under the new name at the City of Gresham’s series of Monday concerts at the Arts Plaza downtown. There, the troupe of young actors covered a series of scenes from The Wizard of Oz and other plays. The company outgrew its former Corbett digs and now is based in Gresham, where it plans to begin its 2017-18 season on October 5 with “HONK!,” based on the story of the Ugly Duckling. That production runs through October 15. In the meantime, check out the photo gallery here with scenes from Monday’s performance, or visit www.corbettchildrenstheater.com.
