Downstage Center Productions

Our Mission

We aim to build a more equitable stage in Vancouver, Washington. Our mission is to elevate the voices of our community through theatrical education and performance. We provide skills designed to develop confidence and insight, inspiring passion and courage to face the challenges of life, both on and off stage.

If you are in need of a worthy organization to make that end-of-year, tax-deductible donation to, we ask that you keep DCP on your "Nice List".

Gingerbread House-Making Competition Fundraiser

WHO: 10 families who are able to make a $100 donation to the DCP production fund.

WHAT: Your family team will be given a table and the basic foundation (gingerbread walls, roof and frosting). Each family will have 1 minute to "Supermarket Sweep" our decorations store for all of the goodies you need to build the biggest, baddest, most ho-ho-holly-tastic Gingerbread House this side of the Columbia- in just 1 hour. There will be judges, there will be hearty competition, there will be a grand prize, and there will be JOY! And best of all, all collected donations will go to support our efforts to build up our productions and the students who participate in them.

WHEN: December 11, 4:00-5:30 PM

WHERE: DCP Studio, 404 E Evergreen Blvd, Vancouver, WA 98660

HOW: Register with the two links below to kick some holiday house booty! Registration opens Monday, November 14th, and will close once we've hit our 10-family limit.

All supplies will be provided, no outside supplies can be used. Judging will take place at the end of the event. Family team names, themed clothing, and house plans are encouraged!
