Insight into Pixie Dust Productions
Giving back to the community
After each matinee performance of “Beauty and the Beast” and “The Wizard of Oz,” the cast donated their time to meet the audience for autographs and photos. We charged each child $5.00 and all the proceeds went to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Oregon & SW Washington. We also provide tickets to organizations that could not afford to see the show.
We donated $5,000 to the Jefferson Dancers in exchange for them to perform in the show and were featured in the “Be Our Guest” number. This helped the dancers to apply their training in a professional company right in their home town. Several of our crew members were High School Drama students who were able to receive expert training and experience not available to them anywhere else in town as well as class credit.
Local Actors, Musicians & Technicians
Everyone on the creative team, onstage, in the orchestra and backstage live and work in the surrounding area. Our show was 100% Oregon and Washington talent.
Pixie Dust is a one man operation surrounded by incredibly talented artists that are thrilled to be working at this level. Because we are a “for profit company” we are not allowed to apply for grants. We reach out to the businesses in the area for sponsorships and they have responded. Although, they only supply a small portion of the funds we need to produce the show. They give because they believe in us.
We are committed to bring high-end musical theatre entertainment to Portland for many years to come.
