Resources

Broadway Rose Theatre Company is community-built and community-focused. In an effort to support our community of artists, we have compiled this list of helpful resources, including local and online businesses to help them gather the tools they need and find helpful books, sites, and videos to educate and inform, as well list other theatre companies in the Portland area that may need cast and crew for their upcoming shows. Broadway Rose hopes to empower, inspire, and educate those who may need a helping hand or a step-up to become the best performers, designers, producers, educators, and artists they can be!
