Tonight, Artists Rep joins regional theaters nationwide to present Standing on Ceremony, a selection of nine 10-minute plays about gay and lesbian relationships. (Here's the full lineup.) Permission to produce the plays is contingent on the producing organization donating a portion of proceeds to a local marriage-equality organization—in our case, Basic Rights Oregon, who are soon to announce if they'll be putting gay marriage on the 2012 ballot.

Portland's got a solid lineup of talent on deck tonight: actors Courtenay Hameister, Michael Mendelson, Vana O’Brien, Vin Shambry, and John Steinkamp, under the direction of Jon Kretzu and Stephanie Mulligan. Tickets are $50 and include wedding cake and "free champagne"; buy 'em here.
