Celebrating over 40 Years of Theater!
Porthole Players is a non-profit community theater group, started in 1972, and formally established in Newport, Oregon in 1978. We are committed to increasing the social capital of our community through our love of theater: developing the skills, spirit, and artistic sensibilities of all those who participate, on stage, behind it, or in the audience. (Oh, and we also put on great shows, too - musicals, dramas, comedies, & more!). We're sponsored in part by the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts, many wonderful volunteers, and members.

National Theatre Live
Cyrano de Bergerac
By Edmond Rostand, in a new version by Martin Crimp
Directed by Jamie Lloyd
James McAvoy (X-Men, Atonement) returns to the stage in an inventive adaptation of Cyrano de Bergerac, captured live in 2020 from the West End in London.
Fierce with a pen and notorious in combat, Cyrano almost has it all – if only he could win the heart of his true love Roxane. There’s just one big problem: he has a nose as huge as his heart. Will a society engulfed by narcissism get the better of Cyrano – or can his mastery of language set Roxane’s world alight?
Edmond Rostand’s masterwork is adapted by Martin Crimp, with direction by Jamie Lloyd (Betrayal). This classic play will be brought to life with linguistic ingenuity to celebrate Cyrano’s powerful and resonant resistance against overwhelming odds.
