To Our Theatre
WHO WE ARE
Southridge HS Theatre was established in the fall of 1999 as a portion of the newest school in the Beaverton School District. Now entering the 23rd year, our Tradition of Excellence adopted the new name and branding in 2012 and remains as you know it today - 10 years later. Skyhawk Theatre continues to withstand the world of COVID through our productions and classes provided to bring a professional rehearsal, performance and working experience to our community and student body. The thespian motto "ACT WELL YOUR PART - THERE ALL THE HONOR LIES" guides the program through every day. Join us for our performances, and our events. Discover what has established the SKYHAWK TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE.
NOTE: We have endured Covid-19 pandemic restrictions, masking, isolations and quaratines. Through 2020-2022 we continued to offer Skyhawk Theatre live onstage. We rose. We endured. We are here! Thank you for supporting and standing by us through the last season with everything that prevailed. We will see you in person this season again as we mount our season - THE MAGIC of HUMANITY.
We would like to acknowledge that Southridge High School, the home of Skyhawk Theatre, rests on the traditional village sites of the Tualatin Kalapuya.
We thank the ancestors of the Kalapuya for being the original stewards and protectors of these lands since time immemorial, and for passing on their lifeways through future generations. We acknowledge that the Portland Metro area has the 9th largest Urban Native American population in the U.S. with over 380 federally recognized Tribes represented. We also acknowledge the systemic policies of genocide, relocation, and assimilation of Oregon tribes, including the Oregon Indian Termination Act, that still impact many Indigenous/Native American families today.
We are honored by the collective work of many Native Nations, leaders and families who demonstrate resilience, resistance, revitalization, healing and creativity. We are honored to be guests upon these lands. Thank you, and thanks also to our colleagues at the Portland State University Indigenous Nations Studies Program for crafting this acknowledgment.
