A one night event where guests can mingle with the artists during an inclusive happy hour and watch Shakespeare’s The Tempest underneath the stars and on the Columbia River aboard the Oregon Maritime Museum Sternwheeler.

The event takes place on September 14th, 2012 at 6:30 pm. The tickets are $60 per person, and that includes hors d’oeuvres, wine, beer, coffee and dessert and the performance. Tickets can be purchased immediately at

HumanBeingCurious is a new production company in Portland and they are launching the first event of their first season with The Tempest. The guest will be greeted with complimentary wine or beer and as they mingle, hors d’oeuvres made by Portland chef Norma Buscholtz will be passed for an hour before the performance. At sunset, the play will commence.

HumanBeingCurious is a special events production company, educated in the arts, and schooled throughout the world in the beauty of design and function. We produce special events with unexpected forms of expression in unexpected arenas. Our goal is to facilitate art that transforms the patron and the artist in an atmosphere that is both welcoming and comfortable. We see the value of art and design, and understand that the artist can be an important catalyst to understanding and re-inventing the world we live in. Art is everywhere from the seats one occupies for an event to the performer on stage to the Burgundy glass filled with Pinot Nior. Each event comes together through collaboration because we believe that growth occurs through the exchanging of ideas and artistic expression.

We are debuting our Fall Season 2012 with the William Shakespeare’s the Tempest. It is followed with a light-hearted subtly clever clown show; an exploration of the barriers of language. Closing our season is a grotesque mask piece rooted in Joseph Campbell’s text, which will be held in Portland’s historical artist warehouse in Southeast. We are excited to be joining the vibrant and dynamic artists community that Portland is known for.

  11. Natalie September 5, 2012 at 8:00 pm #

    I’m new in the city (only 5 days in town) and it would be a great way to start my year in town :)

  12. Nicole September 5, 2012 at 10:56 pm #

    SE is infinitely closer than Ashland, let’s do this!

  13. Dan Wheeler September 6, 2012 at 7:55 am #

    Sounds like a grand evening. I’d love the chance to check it out.

  14. mango September 6, 2012 at 12:27 pm #

    “These be fine things, an if they be not sprites. That’s a brave god, and bears celestial liquor. I will kneel to him.”

    good stuff!

  15. April September 6, 2012 at 1:44 pm #

    I love the Tempest! And boats.

  16. Andrea Rose September 6, 2012 at 1:53 pm #

    Jeezus!! This sounds like the perfect date night! I missed the festival in Ashland this year and would love to take my new boo to this.. Please??

  17. Mathew September 6, 2012 at 1:59 pm #

    Three reasons to pick me:

    1) I’m a Shakespeare fan and will be going “wherefore, wherefore, wherefore!” All night long if I don’t get these tickets.

    2) it sounds like a very palatable spread and that’d be very nice right now.

    3) I want to take a special someone here and hope she finds me special back

  18. Tammy September 6, 2012 at 2:03 pm #

    This sounds awesome! I’d love to take my boyfriend to this. :-)

  19. annie brown September 6, 2012 at 2:08 pm #

    this sounds like a big adventure and i love to hob-nob with bizarre theater types. please select me. available and willing to engage in promotional activities upon request.

  20. Nathan September 6, 2012 at 2:18 pm #

    Knowing I lov’d my books, he furnish’d me,
    From mine own library, with volumes that
    I prize above my dukedom.


    Or maybe “he furnish’d me” tickets?

    I love Shakespeare’s plays and poems, such masters of art any artist should strive to achieve!

  21. amy brennan September 6, 2012 at 2:42 pm #

    The Tempest is one of those Shakespeare works I’ve always intended to read, and haven’t. I’d love a chance to see it, and absorb it, and feel my culture quotient go up.

  22. Olivia Tirta September 6, 2012 at 2:47 pm #

    I would like to win because I like to try out new things and this sounds awesome. Thank you!

  23. HDragon September 6, 2012 at 2:56 pm #

    This sounds like fun. I wish I could afford tickets ;-)

  24. [email protected] September 6, 2012 at 2:57 pm #

    “A pox o’ your throat, you bawling, blasphemous, incharitable dog!” … unless, of course, you pick me.

  25. Nancy September 6, 2012 at 3:24 pm #

    Shakespeare/The Tempest on a ship? What fun; would love the chance to do this! Thank you so much.

  26. Kim September 6, 2012 at 3:25 pm #

    A chance to finally enlighten my wonderfull husband to the whit and humour of W.S. Sadly he said he would never pay to see something that would probably bore him to death. Little he knows it comes alive on stage. High school english didn’t do it justice.

  27. Frank Byers September 6, 2012 at 3:52 pm #

    Oh boy. If I took my lady friend to this event, she’d make me more delicious homemade food.

  28. Karissa September 6, 2012 at 3:53 pm #

    I desperately want to punish my husband by making him attend this with me. I’d love it. He’d… you know. Love it. Sure.

  29. Stephanie September 6, 2012 at 4:30 pm #

    My husband and I just moved to Portland at the end of July and have yet to experience the city without our three-year-old in tow. We adore him, but it’d be amazing if our first night out just the two of us was to something like this!

  30. Kaila September 6, 2012 at 5:03 pm #

    We would love to see the Tempest for the first time!

  31. DANIEL RUTH September 6, 2012 at 5:33 pm #


  32. Lisa S September 6, 2012 at 6:54 pm #

    Oh please pick me … I’ve not had much of a summer and it’s almost gone. I love Shakespeare and ‘to be or not to be’ there … is that not the question? But you have the answer … tickets for me?!

  33. Molly September 6, 2012 at 7:05 pm #

    Are you kidding? I’m sure this is how Billy S. intended this play to be staged.

  34. Elena Pecheos September 6, 2012 at 7:19 pm #

    love the temptest!

  35. sandy September 6, 2012 at 7:21 pm #

  37. Chezz September 6, 2012 at 11:39 pm #

    The Tempest? On a boat? Excellent! If it rains, so much the better. Count me in, please.

  38. Sandy September 6, 2012 at 11:40 pm #

    Yes please!! Sounds like fun!

  39. Rob W September 7, 2012 at 12:18 am #

    In a teapot, 7-four = a tempest.

  40. Mike September 7, 2012 at 12:22 am #

    If it’s anything like The Tempest as seen in the movie Tombstone… count me in! Lol. Shakespeare makes my pantaloons ruffle.

  41. Kacy September 7, 2012 at 12:27 am #

    This sounds like tons of fun! I was just thinking about how Im bummed Ive been missing the Shakespeare in the park….but throw in a boat and appetizers and even better!!!

  42. Angela September 7, 2012 at 1:04 am #

    The world of art coming alive.

    Please pick me, pick me!

  44. Leonard September 7, 2012 at 7:51 am #

    What fools these mortals be.

  45. JR September 7, 2012 at 10:37 pm #

    This sounds quite interesting! I’m the son of an english teacher and a history teacher. I can’t pass on free Shakespeare.

  46. Mike September 8, 2012 at 10:22 am #

    Oh yeah a nice evening to finish off the summer.

  47. Tricia Seymour September 8, 2012 at 11:19 am #

    We are fans of theatre, have never seen The Tempest and it sounds like the perfect setting to catch it for the first time! Plus we have an out of state visitor coming in that day & will buy a ticket for him as well to experience it! Heck, even if we don’t win we just might go!

  48. Cassie September 8, 2012 at 6:41 pm #

    I’m a drama geek and haven’t been to a play since I moved to Portland almost a year ago! Makes my heart unhappy =(. This sounds like a great opportunity, this is one of the Willy shows I’ve actually never seen performed! As a student tickets are too expensive most of the time so thanks for even the possibility of attending =).

  49. Christina September 9, 2012 at 4:07 pm #

    I would love to take my best friend to this before we go off to college and go our separate ways. This sounds like an amazing night!

  50. Andrea Bean September 9, 2012 at 4:14 pm #

  51. Kate Halliday September 9, 2012 at 9:29 pm #

  52. Arrs September 9, 2012 at 9:47 pm #

    It would be an awesome date night.

  53. BL September 9, 2012 at 10:37 pm #

    I’ve been trying to get out and try new things and this would be just the ticket to help me do that!

  54. Ruthie September 9, 2012 at 11:14 pm #

    I LOVE Shakespeare and history, and combining the two is an awesome idea! I would be ecstatic to be chosen!

  55. Philip September 10, 2012 at 1:53 am #

    This would be amazing

  56. Sarah K September 10, 2012 at 12:19 pm #

    my mom is visiting from back east and she’d love this combo of classic shakespeare and weird portland!

  57. Ricky September 10, 2012 at 2:29 pm #

    Love to win some tickets to this. Great night with my lady friend. Help a brotha get lucky ;)

  58. Karen J September 10, 2012 at 6:42 pm #

    Altho I’d love to go, I don’t think I could make you smile like [email protected] made me smile with his entry (so pick him already!):
    “A pox o’ your throat, you bawling, blasphemous, incharitable dog!” … unless, of course, you pick me.
