What we're about

Wanna grab a bite and see a play, and meet some new people along the way?

This is your Meetup!

My name is Caitlin, and I'm the Artistic/Managing Director of a local, nonprofit theatre called Enso Theatre Ensemble. Over the last few years, I found myself wanting to know more about the folks coming to see our shows, just as many of our audiences wanted to know more about what happens behind-the-scenes. Plus, I wanted to provide audience members with a full-evening, "Enso" experience (nibbles + show!)

And so, this Meetup was created!

I'll provide each Meetup event with discounted tickets to Enso productions, and do what I can to secure discounts to local restaurants as well. We'll grab something to eat and/or drink either before, or after the show, during which I hope we can have some lively conversation about the arts.

And what is Enso Theatre Ensemble? Enso is a nonprofit theatre addressing the needs of overworked/burned out artists by using a unique, wellness-based approach to making their work. Past productions include adaptations of “Pride & Prejudice,” “Romeo & Juliet,” a new play called “SHE IS FIERCE: A Play Not By Shakespeare”, and their current production, the Oregon premiere “Care of Trees” by E. Hunter Spreen.

You can learn more about Enso, here:

Follow them on Facebook as Enso Theatre, Instagram/Twitter as @EnsoTheatre.

I hope that this Meetup will become a wonderful way for anyone new to the theatre scene to have a group to attend shows with, and an opportunity for long-time theatre lovers to learn more about what goes on behind the curtain. And all over a glass of wine & and something delicious!

Cheers! Can’t wait to meet you.
