Masque Alfresco’s Final Curtain
From Fayra Teeters, Subud Portland:
It is with a proud, yet heavy, heart that I announce the Final Season of Masque Alfresco – and probably my very last Acting/Directing project.
Why, you may be asking? I turn 75 this summer – time to retire. Everyone in my company has “moved on” – so, no one to pass the torch to.
So, come out to celebrate with me & the current company members – 21 years of FREE plays in Portland Area parks

Although Masque Alfresco has always been Family-Friendly, this show is by no means “Children’s Theatre”. As we say in our final song: “We’re portraying deeper sense, so please don’t take Offense!”
This hour-long play is infused with Taoist philosophy, commedia dell’arte slapstick schtick, colorful characters, plus 6 original songs.
Be sure to bring lawn chairs, blankets, picnics, leashed pets, children & your funny bones!
