TC Smith, of Portland’s ShowDrape, was a long-time friend and hero to PICA. TC passed away on December 30, 2014 due to injuries sustained in a work related accident. We invite you to gather on March 30th at PSU’s Lincoln Hall to pay tribute to his life and generosity. TC and his company have spent the last several decades in Portland making theater and performance possible from behind the scenes. Almost every arts organization and every performing artist in Portland has been directly or indirectly impacted by one of TC’s frequent and often heroic acts of generosity to the arts community! On March 30th, it’s our turn to give back and to celebrate TC’s life in performance.


Admission: Sliding scale donations at the door or via, here.
