Bike Me To The Moon
For the 9th year in a row, the Working Theatre Collective hosts the one and only Bike Play! This annual ride takes Portland cyclists, young and old, on a one-of-a-kind theater experience in which an entire PLAY is performed in site specific locations in one of Portland’s unique neighborhoods. This year’s ride will be taking place in inner NE Portland’s Kerns neighborhood. Join us as we take inspiration from classic literary stories such as “20,000 Leagues under the Sea” and “Around the World in 80 Days” to tell the tale of the first humans ever to blast a bicycle to the moon!
Directed by Noah Dunham

Bike Play 8: Adventures in BikeSitting
Bike Play this year is totally righteous! Working Theatre Collective is throwing it back to the ‘80s with a reimagining of the classic movie “Adventures in Babysitting”. Naïve suburbanites find themselves stranded in the Big City, and they’ll have to use every trick in the book to get home safely!
Join director Tara Coen and the cast of Jenny Bunce, Noelle Eaton, Hans Ellis, Kristopher Mahoney-Watson, Yohhei Sato, and Diana Schultz as they match wits with mob bosses, groovy musicians, and everyone in between in their quest to get back to the ‘burbs!

Great Scott! The history of the bicycle is shrouded in mystery! The Working Theatre Collective in conjunction with Pedalpalooza is proud to present a play that invites audiences on a ride through space and time.
This year Devon Granmo directs WTC’s play by/on bike featuring Cristina Cano, Tara Coen, Noelle Eaton, Hans Ellis, Nick Fenster, Kaician Kitko and Yohhei Sato as they travel on two wheeled time machines and explore the events of yesteryear. Together we will ride across the continuum, (and around SE Portland), to ensure the future is set right!
Grab your helmet, tune up your own two wheeled time machine, and join us on this excellent adventure.
FREE! Donations gladly accepted.

The Working Theatre Collective is proud to present a play about a protagonist and their bike — together for the first time in their (6th) big adventure! When our hero has their beloved bike stolen, they set out across North Portland to get it back and find themselves on the ride of the summer!
For the 6th installment of the Working Theatre Collective’s wildly popular play by/on bicycle, we decided to give a nod to one of the greatest bicycle films of all time: Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure. Loosely inspired/informed by the cult classic tale of bicycle theft we encourage audiences to ride to, through, and alongside this summer-evening (and one afternoon!) adventure as it tells its story across a series of locations.
Bring your helmet and be prepared for some james bond kinda stuff.

Answer the call to adventure as Bike Odyssey takes you on an epic journey through a land of gods, monsters, and heroically dexterous bike mechanics. The fifth installment of the Working Theatre Collective’s road-cloggingly-popular, pedal-powered-quest-theatrical-spectacular resurrects the gods of old for one more ride. You will cycle through worlds (and underworlds!) forbidden to mere mortals, alongside our band of cyclo-nauts. Don’t forget your bike!
You are encouraged to come dressed in the guise of your favorite bike goddess, demigod, or titan.
