What Is “Shanghaied In Astoria?”

‘Shanghaied In Astoria’ is not your typical musical play. It’s a captivating journey back in time to the early 1900s in Astoria, Oregon, during the Scandinavian Midsummer Festival. The plot centers around Eric Olson’s daring mission to rescue Miss Virginia Sweet. This one-of-a-kind production is brought to life by the Astor Street Opry Company, a cast of locals who have been delighting audiences every summer since 1984. In 2024, they will mark their 40th season, a testament to the timeless appeal of this play. 

When Can I See It?

The show is performed every summer, usually three to four times a week, and it runs until near the end of August.

Where Can I See The Show?

The show takes place at the historic Astor Street Opry Company theater, a local treasure located at 129 W. Bond St. This charming venue adds to the overall experience of the play, making it a must-visit for theatre enthusiasts and history buffs alike.
