Join us on May 11th, at PSU!
Vortex 1 is back! We are stepping out of the COVID blur to present a staged reading of our highly acclaimed musical, on May 11, at Lincoln Recital Hall, Portland State University. This reading celebrates a legendary part of Oregon history and coincides with the twenty-second anniversary of the 1970 student occupation of the Park Blocks in protest of the Vietnam War and the student massacre at Kent State. Books and lyrics by Sue Mach; music by Bill Wadhams of Animotion fame. Suggested donation for tickets is $20, or pay what you will. You can purchase them here: TICKETS. We look forward to celebrating this amazing event with you!
