Welcome to Sanctuary Stage, a community outreach program of the Linn-Benton Community College Performing Arts Department. Our projects focus on creating original plays through Devised, Applied and Community Engaged Playmaking platforms. We strive to promote diversity, social justice and awareness. Our projects often focus on, but not limited to, the stories of micro-communities found within the greater Willamette Valley Oregon.
We are excited to announce our new community partnership with the Oregon Coast Aquarium! Through our partnership and collaboration, we have created a children's play that explores the problem of platic pollution in our oceans.
Upcoming Project 2020-2021
The History of Racism in Oregon
1844 Oregon Black Exclusion Laws
This play will examine a moment in Oregon history where people of color were forbidden to take up residence within this territory. In 1857 Oregon was the only territory to enter the United states topropose a constitution that prevented people of color to eneter, reside or buy property within its borders.
