School performancesGetting there

Description: The Old Log was originally a summer stock company which opened in 1940 in a log stable. As the Northwest's first professional theatre, the Old Log Theatre established a loyal following and received widespread critical acclaim. In 1960, a new theater was built adjacent to the original theatre and operation became year-round. In addition to main stage productions of contemporary plays and musicals, the theatre also produces children show productions during the summer and holiday season. The Old Log is now one of the longest continuously running theatre companies in the nation.
