They placed in the top three in the recent regional competition. They are: Lauren Steele, first place, 16, Jefferson High School; Taylor Salter, second place, 15, Metropolitan Learning Center; Sekai Edwards, third place, 15, Jefferson. The national competition, involving many students from U.S. cities, will be held May 2 to 4

The 16 regional finalists recited monologues of the late great playwright Wilson’s, no longer than three minutes, recently at the Gerding Theater.

‘Venice in PDX

The Portland Art Museum continues to feature the stunning exhibit “Venice: The Golden Age of Art and Music,” through May 11.

Now Portland Center Stage will be collaborating with the art museum on “Venice in PDX” when it stages “Othello” (April 5 to May 11), as the two entities offer special admission prices for people who want to enjoy both of the offerings.

Organizers say that to take advantage of the offer, patrons can use promo code PAM online at www.veniceinpdx.org to save $10 on each “Othello” ticket they purchase. Then, they can present their ticket at the Portland Art Museum box office to receive a two-for-one deal on admission to “Venice: The Golden Age of Art and

Music.”

If you’ve already purchased tickets to one program, you

can get the discount when you purchase tickets for the other program.
