Miz Kitty’s Parlour Vaudeville Show

Miz Kitty and friends are back in our Cozy home, THE MISSION THEATER for SEASON 15 of the Miz Kitty's Parlour!

Join us for an evening of Jazz, Old-Timey Music, Doubles, Bubbles, Comedy and door prizes!

Taking the 21st century audience into the realm of the Alaskan Gold Rush, genuine Vaudeville acts and music in the spirit of true Americana, Lisa Marsicek, a.k.a. Miz Kitty, will be your seasoned and spirited guide for a night you will never forget!

Every month will bring bits, schtick and musical acts bound to astound, astonish and thrill you! Song and dance, comedy and theatrics, string bands, classical and eclectic; the outrageous and the delightful variety of acts combine to tickle and entertain.

Lisa Marsicek has been entertaining Portland audiences as the singing, clog dancing fiddler in the popular Flat Mountain Girls stringband for several years. She also plays fiddle with the Sassparilla Jug Band. Her Victrola and 78 RPM record collections have also been featured in the Portland Tribune.

A portion of the proceeds will go to the ACLU of Oregon.




The Libertine Belles

The Libertine Belles

A bawdy band of, and for, hot jazz-babies! We are here to groove and spread a little vintage-style music, rhythm, and love.....


The Amazing Bubbleman

The Amazing Bubbleman

Bubble art, tricks, science and fun.

Louis Pearl is one of the world's leading bubble-ologists. He began in 1980 by making, demonstrating, and selling a toy called the Bubble Trumpet on a street corner in Berkeley, California. Eventually his toy company had 147 products with international manufacturing and distribution, but Louis found that he preferred playing with the toys over selling them. He sold Tangent Toys in 2002. Since then he has been touring the world, performing hundreds of shows every year.



Zak Borden & Friends

Zak Borden & Friends

Zak Borden didn't really have a choice. He grew up in an extended family of full-time artists, musicians and writers. It wasn't exactly the quiet, cul-de-sac life. Parties would often turn into rowdy, late night discussions on the nature of this and that, passing a guitar around and singing old Hank tunes and the like.

"All manner of tuneful sorrow" - Guitar World (Acoustic)

Zak has put down roots in many musical disciplines. In his late teens, he fell in love with bluegrass music. As it does for so many, that fertile American hybrid introduced him to a world of other styles: from the country soul of The Band to the lilting traditions of Ireland; from modern string band takes on Thelonious Monk to the syncopated rhythms of Brazil. However, as a performer and educator he soon came to find that it was really just passionate, well-played and interesting music that he loves. Music that connects and tells a story. Zak's shows employ nimble picking on guitar or mandolin and a deep baritone voice that leaps easily into a clear, high tenor.

"Captures your attention in the simple beauty of stuff going on...filled with love, a favorite photo you tape to the fridge because it makes you happy when you see it. That kind of charm." ?-Performing Songwriter

Over the years his collaborations have reflected his diverse background, including tours with Portland rock veteran Casey Neill and Japanese / Irish flute master Hanz Araki, Willy Mason, Rachel Harrington and classical and jazz double bass and cello wizard Buell Neidlinger (Cecil Taylor). Zak is currently preparing to record both the debut of his Brazilian choro project "The Brazillionaires" and a long-overdue collection of new songs.

The location that serves as one of McMenamins favorite neighborhood theater pubs was the locus of great spiritual zeal beginning in the 1890s. That's when the Swedish Evangelical Mission established its church here....

From a church to a theater-pub, the Mission's history ain't exactly saintly. Click here for more info!
