The title role will be played by nationally renowned Buddy Holly performer Matt McClure from New York, who will join other professionals from around the country and local Newport talent to bring the most successful rock 'n roll musical of all time to the Newport Performing Arts Center!

She Loves Me Not

We're very excited to announce our upcoming production of this musical comedy with book, music and lyrics by the Oregon Coast's own Milo Graamans. In 2014, director Carl Miller presented Milo's original work as a reader's theater musical, a stylistic first for Newport. Now, Porthole Players is planning a full stage production with a whole new cast for Summer 2019, and you can be part of the magic! Auditions will be held February 16, 2019 at 3 pm at the Newport Performing Arts Center.
