Welcome to Sanctuary Stage, a community outreach program of the Linn-Benton Community College Performing Arts Department. Our projects focus on creating original plays through Devised, Applied and Community Engaged Playmaking platforms.  We strive to promote diversity, social justice and awareness.  Our projects often focus on, but not limited to, the stories of micro-communities found within the greater Willamette Valley Oregon.
