The city and community partners are investigating the development of a Performing Arts Center in Beaverton. As we look forward to the findings of this process, there are several local organizations who have made their spaces available. Please be advised each location has their own unique requirements and standards.

Valley Theatre

Description from Manager, Susan LaClair:
We are mostly into “just movies”, but on occasion do host live shows, too. For two years the Blue Monkey theater group did a live production of “Night of the Living Dead” here, and next month, a Hawaiian Comic will be doing a live show in one of our smaller auditoriums. The stage areas are not what I would call ideal, but are serviceable to a degree, for some of these types of productions. We have three auditoriums with seating for 375, 124, and 85, respectively.

Email: e-mail

Description from Minister of Music, Josh Pounders:
Our Worship Center seats 200-250 comfortably and can be stretched to seat 300. It is ideal for recitals, small concerts, and presentations, although it does not provide excellent acoustics for some applications. In addition, we have a good sized foyer and a Fireside Room (100-150 capacity) that are excellent venues for more intimate settings and would even be excellent spaces for visual art displays.

Beaverton Foursquare Church
Contact info:
13565 SW Walker Road
Beaverton OR 97005
Phone: (503) 644-9104; Contact: Brent Mills, Music Director
Email: e-mail

Description from Music Director, Brent Mills:
Beaverton Foursquare lends their space to many community events. Their schedule is very tight and almost all evenings are booked. They have a large, 1500 seat auditorium, reserved for very large events. No rental fee or policies are currently in place. BFC is not able to accommodate many small, outside events as stage and equipment require lots of on site staff and are for special use only. Case by case basis as far as local performances are concerned. Might be teaming with Christian Youth Theatre when they begin working in Beaverton in Sept. Cannot schedule more than 6 months out. Decent sized stage but no back stage. Large projection screen, doorway under screen to back hall “maze” and offices. Music pit between screen and platform is about 5 feet wide, very small. Audience accessible to wheelchair bound, stage not. Lighting and sound systems intact but simple. Could accommodate choir, band, orchestra, etc., but no drama.
