Do Jump leaps into Estacada


Actorbats have performed in Los Angeles, New York, Washington, D.C.

What happens when theater, music, dance and acrobatics are combined? Estacada residents will have the opportunity to find out soon, as Do Jump is coming to town for one night only.

For 30 years, Do Jump founder and artistic director Robin Lane has led his group of “actorbats” in entertaining audiences throughout North America.

Lane renovated the historic Echo Theater, a former silent movie house in Portland’s Hawthorne District, in 1983. The following year, Lane founded the Do Jump Movement Theater School, and the classes taught there encourage physical confidence, freedom and grace in a creative, non-competitive environment.

Since then, Do Jump has produced many of its shows at the 800-seat Newmark Theater at the Portland Center for the Performing Arts. The company has also toured extensively through the United States and Canada, including extended runs in Los Angeles, New York City and Washington D.C.

Estacada Together will present Do Jump on Thursday, April 4, at the junior high auditorium, 500 N.E. Main St. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the program begins at 7 p.m.

Tickets are available at the door. They cost $7 for adults, $5 for students and seniors and $20 for a family.
