Home to the Portland Ten Minute Play Festival, Monkey With a Hat on is dedicated to providing community and theater for all. Theater empowers us and allows us to share live experiences. It offers a medium for thought, emotion and human histories to be exchanged in real time. This should be accessible to everyone. Both to the audience, where our tickets are always $5; and to the people who want to participate, where we have an open door policy.
We welcome any heart-beating, positive Portlander who wants to get involved—whether for acting, writing, directing or stagecraft. Anyone can attend casting calls, submit a play and apply to be a part of our company. We want you to join the fun! To get involved, all you have to do is click here.
The Portland 10MPF is a collaborative short form theater event with all the plays performed two weekends in a row. Each play is ten minutes or less and features some of Portland’s best theater talent - writers, actors, directors, and crew! The 10MPF is a showcase of contemporary and unique stories that always entertain and inspire our audience. We want you to be a part of it with us!
